I sodablasted my boat back in 2007. It is quite good at prepping a boat for barriercoating and painting. It will not leave a boat with dings and crater, unless the operator is completely incompetent. It sounds like he's confusing it with sandblasting, which can seriously damage the laminate.
I was left with a bit of sanding, mainly near the waterline, where the sodablasting wasn't able to do as thoroughly to prevent damage to the area above the waterline. Sodablasting may reveal gelcoat voids, but that is probably true of proper sanding or scraping as well.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
