Thanks Charlie. All noted.
Juno is now on the market so not sure yet whether I’ll be commissioning the blasting or a new owner.
Pleased to hear you’re saving/restoring Cabby.
That’s very good news!
If you hear of anyone who might be interested in Juno, maybe you could pass on this link?

Charlie hi,
As I said Blackwatermarina now have two drydocks and can high-pressure Or grit blast. Closer to you as well! As you probably know Cabby is in the big dock till the summer but the smaller one might be free. C

Juno has a welded steel hull and deck - built in 2000.


No leaking rivets then 😁👍

They also have water blasting at Hoo, which is remarkably good value (considering the price of the mediums of shot at the moment) and as you say, cleaner abs leaves a finish suitable for 2pak paint application.

Could any DBA members recommend a yard based between Norfolk and the Thames estuary to undertake this work?


Hi.

I'm guessing that you have a riveted hull?

If so can I suggest you consider using The Farrow System to clean the hull instead of conventional shot or grit blasting.

It's a remarkably clean process as the hot water washes the detritus away as it's produced.

The application can be adjusted from fine enough to remove varnish without damaging the wood underneath, to highly effective paint removal from iron and steel, leaving a dull gray slightly abraded finish for the new paint to adhere to. We were amazed at how quick and clean the process was.

Charlie hi
The best and most reliable I know is Blackwater marina in Maylandsea. The did a great job on Viod. As you probably know Cabby is in dry dock there at the moment till July but they have a second dock which would take you. Give them a call. Charlie M
