Re: Bottom paint etc

Hey,

From what I have seen, soda blasting will not damage gelcoat (unlike SAND blasting, which can really chew up gelcoat). The soda can remove bondo and other types of fillers. If you have patches of that on the keel or hull the soda blast can remove them. It can also open up blisters. It's up to you to decide of that is good or bad.

Re: Bottom paint etc

In reference to the soda blasting causing damage, like everything else, if you hire someone who knows what they are doing and does it everyday, you will not get any damage to the hull. Our guy, although had a poor work ethic, did a okay job and I wish he took a little more off because I still had a lot of sanding to do after he was done.

Beautiful looking job.

After the soda blasting what did you have to do?
I'm assuming sanding?
How much?
