Wondering what your hull might look like after it is soda blasted?

If you're wondering what your hull might look like after it is soda blasted, you can have a look at these pics:

Bottom Job - After Soda Blasting | Jim's Scampi 30 MK-IV Site - Helios

Be sure to click on the thumbnails for a larger picture.

This is my Scampi 30 MK-IV. Its about 31 years old now and didn't look this bad before the blasting. Of course, it was covered with who knows how many layers of different types of bottom paint. Apparently bottom paint is good for more than just a little anti-fouling; it can hide a multitude of sins as well.

There are many, many holes from osmosis blisters. You can see a bunch of badly done keel repairs, places where holes were patched and the bad condition the skeg and rudder are in.

This bottom is being redone by a pro. He will reshape the foils, repair the blisters, add an epoxy barrier, smooth, apply some Vivid and then smooth again. Hopefully it will be a good bit faster when its back in the water!

Fun, Fun..but it will be nice when done.

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

It amazes me how much an algae grass skirt and some hull imperfections can affect performance.

I did media (plastic bead) blasting on aircraft and that doesn't surprise me. The substrate gets chewed up a bit when ya use that process. It needs a good bit of fairing when it's done.
