David,

Sorry for a late reaction but I liked the movie. Seems a very good way to do when the old anti fouling should be removed totally.
Haven't had time yet to look if this also could or is done over here. Have been a couple of times called by the Marina, they couldn't remove the chain as they had only the old keys. Boat went out yesterday and this afternoon they called that they didn't had the keys to unlock the drives, but at arrival they had already "fixed" it and one leg was done already. :)

I have heard of the soda as well. It would be interesting to see a comparison between the two methods and any cost difference

I have convinced a local sandblast mobile company who has used soda to try walnut shell media. i convinced him it could be a cleaner more enviroment friendly way. we agreed i would buy the walnuts and pay his mans wage and he would use my boat as an experiment. walnut shells are on back order but as soon as they are in we will give it a try. i think it will benifit both parties as i have two friends who are eagerly waiting to see if it works well and if they tell 2 friends and if those tell 2 friends...........!
