SeaDek to Attend American Boating Congress

American-Boating-Congress_Image_v2

Owners descend on Capitol Hill to Unite with Industry Advocates

Rockledge, FL (April 19, 2016)—On May 9-11, 2016 in Washington DC, SeaDek Marine Products will join a broad group of marine business owners, representatives, and lobbyists in a rallying-cry to strengthen the industry’s collective advocacy impact. Jason Gardner, Principle and Vice President of Marketing, as well as Serenity Gardner, Chief Operating Officer, are proud to take the opportunity to communicate directly with policy makers about the issues facing the marine industry.

“It is critical that we are involved in local, state, and national issues that affect our business and our livelihoods. The American Boating Congress hosted by the NMMA is the perfect venue to enable leaders in the recreational boating industry to inform our congressional representatives on the decisions and ultimately laws that impact us. Some of the issues that will be discussed this year include one of the most pressing concerns we have in Florida’s Space Coast today—environmental compliance. With hundreds of thousands of dead fish in our own backyard, in large part because of polluted water, this industry and our business is seriously impacted, and we look forward to bringing these issues to our representatives,” said Serenity Gardner.

The ABC is the industry’s most important advocacy event, providing the opportunity to build and strengthen relationships with congressmen and representatives who play a key role in legislation that directly impacts boating in America. The two-day event features keynote speakers, scheduled visits to Capitol Hill, and the opportunity to network with other members of the boating community, with the common goal of ensuring a healthy future for recreational boating. More information can be found at www.nmma.org/government/abc.

SC Wake SeaDeks a Hobie PA 17

The guys up at SC Wake, a SeaDek Certified Fabricator based out of New Trenton, Indiana, just sent us some photos of a sweet kayak install. They gave a 2016 Hobie Pro Angler 17 (www.hobiecat.com) a full kit and it came out really well. The customer chose Black over Bimini Blue with a brushed texture, and SC Wake gave it a diagonal pattern with numerous custom logos. Way to go guys!

2016 Miami International Boat Show – Recap 3

The SeaDek crew travelled down to Miami in the middle of February to attend the 2016 Miami International Boat Show, the largest annual boat show in Florida. Our crew met with hundreds of vendors, boaters, boat builders, friends, clients, and potential clients at one of the best shows yet! Although the crew had our own tent, there were hundreds of boats throughout the show that featured SeaDek. We couldn’t be happier!

SeaDek in Australia

Ross McCloud from Kings Fiberglass (www.kingsfibreglass.com.au) in Melbourne Australia recently finished up this kit for our Australian distributor, Southern Cross Textiles. He templated, cut and installed the pads for the customer. The boat was a Whitecap imported to Australia from the US. The customer was really happy with the excellent job done.

SeaDek Crew Puts Apparel to the Test On Recent Trip

Last month, Matt Melheim and Mike Longman of the SeaDek team joined some friends for a weekend of fishing in Marathon in the Florida Keys. After hearing rumors of an early Dolphin run, they loaded up the trolling gear and headed south in hopes of full coolers and singing reels. In true SeaDek fashion, they went armed with enough SeaDek gear to take on whatever nature dished out, including Performance shirts, short and long sleeve T-shirts, and Hats.  04-16_SeaDek_Apparel_Small-5

The next morning at the dock, the ocean gave the guys the perfect chance to put their threads to the test—six-foot seas in the gulfstream and 20-knot Northeast winds. They toughed it out and made it to the stream, where they put some quality fish in the boat, starting with some schoolie dolphin, and eventually some nice gaffers.

They shielded everyone from the harsh sun while staying cool and breathable, even after repeated salt soakings from the relentless chop. At the end of the weekend, everyone gave their SeaDek swag two thumbs up, and it was time to head back North for Monday morning at SeaDek headquarters.

Sneak peak video of Oliver Ngy’s 2016 Big Bass Dreams Ranger:

If this next video doesn’t get you excited for some bass fishing, we aren’t sure what will:

Great job, guys!

Here are some photos to get you even more excited to get out on the water and do some bass fishing this weekend. Oliver’s boat is equipped with 6mm storm gray over black SeaDek (reference number 22361). Fisherman love SeaDek because of it’s noise reducing qualities. It’s easy to install and will never mold or mildew because SeaDek is a closed cell EVA foam.

Capt. Jimmy Nelson’s SeaDeked Boat Makes Cover of Onshore Offshore Magazine

When you pick up the April 2016 edition of Onshore Offshore magazine (www.onshoreoffshore.com), you will find none other than our friend Captain Jimmy Nelson’s boat on the cover. Besides the smoker kingfish, the first thing that catches the eye is Jimmy’s custom SeaDek pads. He has complete gunnel pads and coaming bolsters in Storm Gray/Black with a brushed texture.

apr2016cover2

And no doubt, the SeaDek bolsters made fighting that king at bit easier on the knees.  SeaDek coaming bolsters are the perfect alternative to traditional upholstery that dries out, cracks, and tears. SeaDek bolsters are made from a UV resistant closed cell EVA foam that stands up to the abusive marine environment, all while being comfortable and easy to apply. Add the ability to customize with an array of color options, personalized logos, and fish rulers, and you will be ready leave traditional bolsters in your wake.
