Default Soda Blasting in the Daytona Area?

Does anyone know if there are any soda blasters in the Daytona area? Thanks.

You might want to call Seven Seas Marina in Port Orange. Ask for John Morocco. If John doesn't do it, he will know who does.

I know that East Coast Sanblasting in Melbourne does it. They just did my 17' whaler for me.

chiung, would you be so kind as to let us know what kind of feedback and/or workmanship you get from either of the two companies you go with mentioned above. I have a 15ft that I need to have done. Any input would be appreciated.

I called 7 Seas and spoke with John and they don't do soda blasting. I'll give East Coast a call. Nitz, do you have a number and how much did they charge for your Whaler? Thanks.

They did my whaler w/sand which is much cheaper than soda. They charged $350.00 to blast the inside and outside of my 1964 17' Nauset (same hull as Montauk) which had several coats of pealing paint and bad gel coat. There # is 321-676-2230. I know soda is something like $35.00 a bag so it will be much more expensive to do soda.

nitz, Thanks, I will give them a call to discuss my needs but the $$ may be pretty steep for my 26X10 deepV!
I will post findings later. Joe

Called and spoke with Richard today at east coast. Very nice guy and pleasant to talk to. He quoted me a price of 500-600 to blast my 26X10 lobsterboat bottom. Sounds alot better than the alternative of crawling under and sanding and very reasonable to me...I will call him back when I'm ready to do this...definately!! Thanks again guys 4 the info...Joe

Hey Ya'll
I'm sorry, that's for sand which he assured me will be fine unless there are blisters, which I don't believe to be an issue for my 26'.

These guys are closer to home and they soda blast. I have no first hand experience with them, but it would be worth a call.

Hey Ya'll
Talked to Derek at Mad Max on Thur. He has the equipment to soda or sandblast but he wasn't doing much bus. so he let his ins. lapse....therefore, he has nowhere to do the work....
I'm gonna talk to the guy who is doing the glasswork on my 26 and see if he will allow Derek to come there to do it after we're done rebuilding it. I don't know where this leaves the rest of U but you might give him a call to discuss UR needs.
Also, he quoted me $700.-$800 to do the work so sand blasting is definately cheaper by about 25% FWIW...Joe

Simply, it's a process to remove your old layers of bottom paint.
Soda/wet sand blasting saves hours or days of sanding to remove multiple layers of built up bottom paint. It's done with a machine like a pressure washer but with sand or soda mixed with the water which makes it more abrasive to remove the paint instead of just washing it.
I ended up having about 10 layers of "hard" bottom paint removed from my 1988 26' Seaway in a matter of 2 hours with wet sand blasting at Cape Marina vs the days of sanding I would have otherwise had to do, to remove it myself.
You will have to epoxycoat/prime after this process but that was well worth it for the finished result. I probably would have had to do that anyway. The cost is +,- $165.00/hr and IMO well worth it!!Joe
