If you are going with the new barrier coat after the soda blast job, be sure to let the blaster folks know to take it all the way down to the gel coat. It is still a lot of hand and machine sanding...

Stripping the mast

What type or brand of stripper did you use to remove the old varnish? I take it that your mast is sitka spruce. Maybe not? I'll be doing mine in the next week or so. The varnish last applied was...

Sailingdog, you are probably quite right, it probably takes a lot longer than three hours to set up and do the job and then clean up behind it.
