We had the amazing opportunity to spend 2 months in Kodiak Alaska during the Fall of 2020 painting a Loran tower for the United States Coast Guard. The work consisted of lead abatement and removing loose and flakey paint with HEPA vacuums. After several weeks of prep work, we recoated the entire tower with a product called Rust Grip which encapsulates the lead-based paint. The tower went from aviation orange to silver within 3 weeks after prep work.
What’s not to love about spending time in Alaska? On the off days, the crew went deep sea fishing in the Pacific, flying floatplanes to Katmai National Park, and lots of site seeing. The Kodiak Island bears are big and abundant and everywhere you turn. We saw the bears almost every day leaving the house for the job site, what a wild adventure we had in Kodiak Alaska.
