I have not dry blasted a boat yet, and have one I have to do one this weekend with the dry blaster because my farrow is down for right now due to a broken water pump.

I am planing on using some fine crushed glass any tips?

Is this a new bare hull that you are profiling for paint or are you removing old paint?

BTW, whats wrong with the Farrow? I've worked through issues with mine over the years, maybe I can help?
It is an older 16 foot mono hull with a cuddy cabin I have been asked to take it down to the fiberglass for them to re apply jell coat or maybe re paint not sure ?

my farrows water pump took a :censored: and I am waiting to go all out and buy the 6:1 wiwa water pump which is $1,800 since I have an older model (2006) it came with the 4:1 wiwa. also when I am replacing that we are going to replace the regulator and plumbing to 1 1/4" to accpept higher cfm/psi so can run it off my 375
and that will cost about $1,000 for the reg & plumbing
I am excited to do this when i get some extra cash flow

Kauai, your basically building a tent under the boat and under the stands, bring the sided up and tape to the haul with shrink wrap tape.
Making a bubble around the boat. The triangle in the front or back should have cloth to capture the dust but let some air out.

I use 20'x100' 3mil Start at center of keel, remove one stand at a time and place plastic under it smoothing it out flat,replace and move to next one ( make sure they have more than 4 stand, you'll need 6 +) After both sides are under the stands
Tape it down the middle with the shrink wrap tape to seal the tent.
Move to the sides and start taping from the middle of the boat to the back, go above the water line a 1' or more
thus will give you head room, seal the back and sides together with tape or clips
On the front were the plastic comes together at the bow you have a triangle hole this is you way in and place to put cloth

Ive attached a few photos so you can see the cloth in the front., one is under the boat so you can see how we go under the stands...

Note: the sides on the bottom, you can see we have tried over the years to use 2x4's to keep the tent form puffing out, we have found its better to have one solid piece from the center (under the keel) to the side and let it puff out.
I will post more pictures in a new post of how we let the sides go...

much mahalos kind sir this is an awesome setup ! will have to try I am sure it takes some practice to get right haha but well worth it the clean up must be a breeze!

what size nozzle do you usually use for boats ?
