“Protecting the Tarpon Legacy” – New Video from CFCW

Our friends at Captains for Clean Water have just released a new video paying tribute to the silver king—undoubtedly the most iconic inshore gamefish in Florida history. Tarpon have long lured anglers with their prehistoric strength, prowess, and beauty, and today they remain an irreplaceable part of Florida’s ecosystem and fishery.

Unfortunately, years of damaging outflow from Lake Okeechobee has taken a toll on Florida’s waterways and the damage done to the Everglades has put all fish species in peril. But the time for action has arrived, and Captains for Clean Water has led the charge in pushing lawmakers and state officials to implement a solution to this decades-long crisis, by redirecting the flow of water to its natural path and sending clean freshwater south through the Everglades.

SeaDek is a proud partner of Captains for Clean Water, and we encourage everyone to get behind this amazing organization to restore and protect the natural resource that we all hold so close to our hearts—Florida’s clean water.

Backcountry Purple Heart/Disabled Veterans Slam II Helps Returning Vets

On August 23 and 24th, Project Healing Waters Inc. (https://www.projecthealingwaters.org/), along with the United States Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment (http://www.woundedwarriorregiment.org/), the Vantage Point Foundation, and the Veterans Association held the second annual “Backcountry Purple Heart Slam” in Everglades National park.

The project brought 15 active duty/retired wounded and disabled veterans together with local charter captains for two days of idyllic fishing in the back country with the goal of assisting in their mental and physical rehabilitation after returning home from duty.

SeaDek was a proud returning sponsor of the event, and we are happy that we could contribute to a great cause for the heroes of our country.

One participant summed up his experience like this:

Sgt. Chad Wooten USMC (Ret.) … “What an amazing and unforgettable trip! Thank you and everyone who worked so hard to put this together for us. Especially all of the captains who took us out and showed us the healing powers of the Everglades!”

Many thanks to everyone that came together to make this event the success that it was!

AXIS A24 Gets SeaDeked

When Nick Cankar reached out to us for SeaDek on his new 2018 AXIS A24, we knew we were going to have some fun with the project. He had just picked the boat up from the Malibu factory in Tennessee, and he couldn’t wait to Dek the new boat out with a custom SeaDek kit that would set his boat apart from the pack.

After going over colors and options at SeaDek headquarters in Rockledge, Florida, we decided to pull out all the stops and get to work. Nick is a professional wake boarder and owner of Wakeboard Naples, Southwest Florida’s premier watersports instruction company, so we started with some cockpit logos to highlight his business, and then added a continuing laser etched AXIS pattern to give the kit some depth.

With Sunset Orange over Seafoam Green as the color of choice, this kit was sure to be one of a kind. SeaDek logos and Black over Sunset Orange bow pads were added to finish the kit, and we sent it into production to be manufactured in time for the boat’s first photo shoot.

Out on the water the kit looked amazing! Nick put together a great group of riders and it was game on once he put the throttle down, with all 409 horsepower growling as it spit out a perfectly groomed world-class wake along the Naples shoreline. The boys tore it up all day long, and the boat, along with its matching SeaDek, turned heads everywhere it went.

Thanks for choosing SeaDek Nick, it was a pleasure working on this project with you!

SeaDek on a Sea Ray 190 SPX

Sometimes a classic faux teak pattern is the perfect remedy for a plain swim platform that needs additional safety and a comfortable place to spend time while lounging and swimming.

This 2016 Sea Ray 190 SPX got new SeaDek swim platform pads in Mocha/Black with clean 2” teak, and the platform will no doubt be the focal point for fun on the boat as soon as its back on the water.

DIY Project on a Baja Boss Hammer

While custom cut SeaDek provides an exceptional fit and finish, SeaDek sheet material is a great option for boaters that want the traction and comfort of SeaDek, but want to save some money by cutting and installing themselves. SeaDek sheet material is easily cut with a sharp razor knife, and features the same 3MTM pressure sensitive adhesive as custom cut products.

We just received these photos from Matthew, who just finished a DIY project on his 98’ Baja Boss hammer with Ruby Red sheet material. This boat is sure to turn some heads on the lake now—nice work Matthew!

SeaDek sheet material is available in an assortment of sizes, and can be purchased directly from our webstore. Click here to start shopping now!

Custom SeaDek on a Vintage Fiberform Boat

When it comes to breathing new life into an older boat, SeaDek is the perfect solution! Ideal for covering spider cracks, worn non-skid, and other imperfections, SeaDek can be customized for a perfect fit in any boat, regardless of age.

Scott from Contemporary Marine Flooring just sent over these photos of a refit he just completed on an older Fiberform cruiser. Scott digitally patterned the aging vessel and created a custom SeaDek cockpit kit in brushed Mocha over Black, and the results are amazing. Talk about bringing an old boat back to life—nice work Scott!
