Building on a combined 50 years’ marine industry experience, the team at Affordable Antifoul Solutions has expanded its services to now offer clients in-house sandblasting with the recent acquisition of top of the line equipment.
Sandblasting is a fast and efficient way of removing old and failed paint. The process prepares the surface ready for protective coatings to be applied, bring the hull back to a smooth and protected surface for many years of boating pleasure.
According to the experts at AAS, signs your boat may require sandblasting are flaking paint, poor adhesion, paint build up after multiple applications of antifoul and marine growth, which consequently slows the boat down and uses more fuel.
The AAS team has diverse experience in industries including mechanical, boat building, vessel management and detailing.
Director, Joel Griffin, who has a background in commercial fishing, running Gold Coast charter boats and decades in marine maintenance, heads up a highly professional and personable team of 10. General Manager, Jade Anderson has experience in commercial vessel management as well as several years honing his skills in the service and warranty department at Riviera.
The range of services AAS can offer boat owners includes project management, antifoul, sandblasting, PropSpeed propeller and running gear coating, hull repairs covering osmosis, gel and fibreglass, and detailing.
