I'm looking for a sand blaster to prep a steel
hulled boat for painting in South Texas
. Mainly the Corpus Christi area. I need to take it down to bare steel
to repaint the hull
. It's been painted previously, but the bottom paint
has been sanded and repainted with anti-foul so many times, the epoxy
is basicly done for.
I know more than a few indivduals on this board are in the South Texas
area, so if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.
I can find only one yard in the Corpus Christi are that will offer to sand blast a boat.
If I can't find someone to blast the boat, what do people think about using a wire wheel
on a large angle grinder to clean the hull
? I've got one huge 15 amp angle grinder from my welding projects. I figure it would make short work of any paint
in a small area, but that would make for a VERY VERY long time under a boat to cover all the area. I'm also not sure how well the paint
would stick after I'm finished. I know the blasting is basicly the "gold standard" for sticking paint to a steel hull
