Celebrating a Big Partnership in Big Ways

They say everything is bigger in Texas. After spending a few days celebrating Sea Ray’s 60th Anniversary with some of the marine industry’s top dealers at Horseshoe Bay Resort in Texas, we’re inclined to agree. When you are the world’s leading provider of pleasure boats, and carry three of the top four boat brands like Brunswick Boat Group does, you “Go Big” or you “Go Home.”

Given our long-standing partnership with Brunswick, it was important for us to share in the recognition of the company’s success. As a Lieutenant sponsor of the Dealer Meeting, we showcased our Snap-In SeaDek product on Sea Ray’s latest models, including the Sundancer 320, SDX 250 Outboard, SLX 400 and SLX 350, and provided attendees with custom SeaDek coasters and samples of our specially formulated cleaner, Dek Magic

When we weren’t at the booth educating attendees about the benefits of SeaDek (or cleaning SeaDek), we could be found alongside fellow Sea Ray partners grilling steaks under the guidance of celebrity chef Tim Love, practicing yoga atop our very own designer lasered mats, and toasting to dealers in business for 60+ years during the Diamond Anniversary Gala and Awards Dinner.

2019 American Boating Congress an Overwhelming Success for Industry

Last week we were proud to once again represent the collective boating industry in Washington, DC, for the 2019 American Boating Congress. Without a doubt, this year’s ABC was the biggest and most impactful to date, with 350 attendees—a 40% increase from last year—and 250 organized visits on Capitol Hill.

With a full plate of hot-button issues currently affecting the marine industry, such as tariffs, environmental conservation, E15, workforce development, and fishing rights, there was no shortage of points to discuss with representatives in the House and Senate.

As an industry that generates over $170 Billion in US economic activity and supports nearly 691,000 jobs, one of the main goals was showing lawmakers what a major economic engine boating is, and how policies that can have adverse effects on the industry need to be considered with that in mind.

After networking and issue workshops on Monday and a full day of meetings with legislators on The Hill on Tuesday, Wednesday featured a jam-packed lineup of high profile speakers, including an address from US Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, and a spirited panel addressing the current political landscape moderated by Bret Baier.

Sunshine State Eggfest

Here at SeaDek, we’re always searching for innovative ways to utilize our product. Recently, a few members of the SeaDek family found a way to incorporate it into their non-water related hobbies via their cook team at Wassi’s Sunshine State Eggfest.

SeaDek was used at the event in the form of a custom cooler top and two anti-fatigue mats. In addition to providing aesthetically pleasing team logo placement, the anti-fatigue mats were used as impact mitigating platforms. Placed in front of the table for attendees to step on while waiting in line, and in front of the cook team’s Big Green Eggs; the anti-fatigue mats offered a comfortable place to stand during the 7-hour event.

Sunshine State Eggfest is an annual event hosted by Wassi’s Meat Market benefitting Candlelighters of Brevard. This year, the event brought in over 5,700 attendees with at the door ticket sales.

Custom SeaDek cooler tops and anti-fatigue mats can be purchased through our expansive network of Certified Fabricators and Installers. Click here to find a Certified Fabricator or Installer near you!

This Summer, Ride Dry and Drive Dry!

With the summer upon us, long and lazy days on the boat are right around the corner. But whether you find yourself and your crew riding, fishing, or just hanging out at the sandbar, always remember to have a designated captain and never mix drinking and boating.

While the boat is the perfect place to cut loose and have a good time, alcohol is the leading contributor to accidents and fatalities on the water. So next time you boat, remember to Ride Dry and Drive Dry!

This message from our friend Darcie of Darcizzle Offshore is brought to you by Ride Dry Drive Dry, an organization dedicated to making fundamental changes in how people enjoy boating.

SeaDek Employees Get Their Hands Dirty to Help Clean the St. John’s River

On Saturday April 27, 2019, employees of SeaDek brought their friends and families out to Leroy Wright Park in Cocoa, Florida for a day of cleaning up on the St. John’s River.

SeaDek Keep Brevard Beautiful

Partnering with Keep Brevard Beautiful, an entire truck full of litter was successfully collected—25 bags!  This garbage was picked up by walking through the marshes, kayaking along the shoreline, and with special help from Captain Mike Channell of Instagator Airboat Rides.  We here at SeaDek believe clean waterways are essential for not just our customers to enjoy, but also for our future generations as well.
