Re: Bottom Paint Oriental, NC

I wanted to take the bottom paint off of my boat as well. I ended up finding a company called Boat Bottom Pro. They sell specific products for the bottom of your boat. I used the Bottom Paint Removal Kit and it worked great! Here is the info if anyone is interested. Their website shows videos and photos of the products which convinced me to try it! Boat Bottom Pro

Re: Hull Stripping - Soda Blast, Sand

I've done 2 different hulls with soda, and was very happy with the result each time. It even generated a lot of business for the company who did it, because others saw how well it came out and wanted theirs done.

Dry ice sounds like a good idea too, but I'd never let a sand blaster near any boat I owned.

Re: Hull Stripping - Soda Blast, Sand

What did you pay per square foot? I have seen good results from soda blasting and got a quote to do my tri hull for 1900.00. 180 square feet.

I decided too much and dropped and Sanders myself. Took me about 20 hours.

I know it's not just about square feet but still a lot for what would be about half day work.

Sorry. I meant stripped and sanded myself.

Re: Hull Stripping - Soda Blast, Sand

$1,280 for a 36' x 13.5' trawler hull, modest sized keel. Not sure what that works out to in square feet of surface area.

I wasn't impressed with the website. Maybe it is a good deal but I wouldn't plop my money down without knowing more about the product. I've chemically stripped a decent amount of stuff over the years; limestone, brownstone, wood, etc. There are a lot of good strippers around. Usually non MEK water soluble environmentally friendly ones would sell for about $150 bucks a gallon and get about 100 sq, ft. per gallon so . . . caution for buying this stuff. You can buy your own rags and scrapers anywhere. Seems like the "kit" is a bit hyped.

Going to guess the sq. ft. a bit more than mine without a keel and only 31'. The ama s are only about 90 sq. ft. You got a better price than me. I would have gone with the soda at 1000 bucks but no for almost 2000.

I also used the Fein dustless sander and that did a real good job because of its high rpm and weight. Expensive to buy but I was able to rent for 20 bucks a day.
