    Treating your narrowboat to this service is the best thing it could possibly receive to its painted surface, this is because steel naturally wants to rust caused by the mill scale. Mill scale on new steel is dark in colour unless exposed to the damp then it rusts. When a boat is sand or grit blasted the grit penetrates the steel removing this mill scale, significantly increasing the life of any further paint on the hull or cab.
