Looking for opinions from the AMEL Group about Soda Blasting
Because I don’t’ know the history of the last 12 years on WASABI what was below the recent AF, how many layer of AF etc. I have in mind to sand down all the old layers. Before I bought my beloved AMEL I owned an Aluminum Boat and treatment of underwater where different. I got an offer from MANOEL Yacht Yard in Malta to remove old paint with Soda Blasting of the underwater GPR Area.
Is there anything to be aware or specific care to know when doing Soda Blasting?
I know from reading that sandblasting can damage the gel-coat, is Soda Blasting same or less invasive for the hull?
