Sand blasting is effective, but is hard to contain. Bottom paints are toxic and it becomes an environmental issue to clean up all the chips. Years ago you could get away with just leaving it on the ground - not any more. Here at work we are required to have total containment of the blasting and everything must be cleaned up afterwards. If the ground becomes contaminated we have to excavate and replace the soil! You can imagine what kind of mess that would be in a boat yard. You can find yards that will allow blasting but you will need to follow their rules. You will get superior results with blasting but it is not the simple way out.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
