Thumbs up walnut shell blasting

walnut shell blasting is an awesome way to get 4 to 5 layers of old bottom paint off your boat. enviromentally friendly fast and easy to do. scraped one small spot approx 1 foot square in 1/2 hour down to gelcoat compared to 2 hours blasting to do whole boat .it took 250 lbs of media or five bags @30$ a bag compressor rental @ 75$ and sandblast guy at a secret discounted rate vs a month of scraping and sanding = priceless . they are cleaner than soda blasting and wont hurt the gelcoat.

The best enviroment blasting is with CO2.

The walnut shells, sand or plastic media still has to be gathered with the dead paint and shipped to a mountain cave in India .

The CO2 leaves, so only the dead bottom paint must go to the special, expensive paint grave yard.
