Soda Blasting Service
QUICK PAINT REMOVAL FOR HULLS - OUTDRIVES - AUTOS- AUTO PARTS - FARM MACHINERY etc
What's under your bottom paint?
Bottom paints hide a lot; We've seen it! It covers previous repairs, osmotic blisters,cracks and other typs of hull damage. I have seen many bottom paints that have not been properly applied - flaking off and exposing a hull to water absorbtion and eventually potential osmotic blisters and hull failure. Heavy amounts of bottom paint on a boat weighs alot and will slow it down cutting fuel efficiency.
Our Soda Blasting is the best Bottom Paint Removal system. It is Safe, Clean & Environmentally friendly! During the bottom paint removal process we can professionally access the condition of your hull. We do more than just soda blast the paint off, we get to see every square inch of it! We can offer the best advise on how to keep your hull in great condition. With over 40 years experience we know how to correctly perform any type of fiberglass repairs if needed!
Please note -After the hull is soda blasted it must be prepped correctly for the best epoxy barrier coat adhesion. Soda blasting alone will not prep a boat for epoxy barrier or bottom paint. It must be sanded with the proper grit sand paper. Epoxy Barrier is a primer for bottom paint and provides the best protection against water intrution and the development of osmotic blistering. We highly recommend epoxy barrier on all hulls that are kept in the water all season.

Insurance Estimates - We work with all insurance companies furnishing them with important repair estimates and digital photos of damages as quickly as possible. The process of an INSURANCE CLAIM varies with each company.
Here is some helpful advise;
* Get the insurance information, names and addresses from the other party or parties involved in the accident, as soon as you sustain the damage. This could be another boat, a marina or another third party. Save this information.
We suggest you take pictures as soon as possible. We will also take photos during our evaluation. The claims representative from the insurance company may also take pictures, but it doesn't hurt to have pictures that you've taken immediately after the incident.
Call a claims representative from the insurance company to make your claim. The claims representative may come out to see damage and help you fill out the claims form, which will allow you to tell your side of the incident.
We have our own info form for you to fill out. It requires; Your infomation- Boat information; Make,Model & HID# (This will be on your Registration) - Your Insurance Company info;name,address Your CLAIM # - A insurance agent/contact person,their phone #,email address and fax #
We will submit to your insurance a written estimate of what it will cost to repair your boat including photos. We provide as much detail as possible so the insurance claims people can fully understand the nature of the damage and the repair process needed to be done.
Most insurance companies will cover transport cost to repair facility and back.
Insurance company will review repair cost and if they have any questions will contact us.
Wait for your check to arrive from the insurance company. This may take only a few days or weeks. It will be processed only after all of the claims forms have been filled out and your claim has been approved.
Receive your check from the insurance company, which you can then use to repair your boat.
