DIY Sheet Material Makes SeaDek a Breeze

While we know that every boat deserves SeaDek, some projects just don’t require the finish achieved through custom fabrication. For many boaters, SeaDek sheet material allows them to enjoy all the traction and comfort of custom SeaDek at a significantly reduced cost. Available in all standard SeaDek colors, there is a DIY SeaDek sheet product for every boat and every application, from an entire deck to a few steps.

We just received these pictures of a DIY Snow Camo job on a 27’ Chesapeake-style workboat from Greg Moffitt. We met Greg at ICAST this year, and he couldn’t wait to show us some photos of his project. On this workboat, sheet material was a great choice and it ended up looking awesome. Nice job Greg!

SeaDek sheet material is easy to cut and apply. With a little time and patience, excellent results can be achieved by the boater who likes to take projects into his or her own hands. Perfect for any application where soft, comfortable non-skid is required, SeaDek sheet material is the perfect option for the do-it-yourselfer.

With a brand new booth, some really innovative new product offerings, and a SeaDeked Nautique GS20 in the water, there was lots of excitement surrounding the SeaDek team at the show.  Check out this re-cap video to see what all the buzz was about:

SeaDek Sponsors New Blue Tube Locations

As a company of boaters, surfers, and water enthusiasts, we always try to do our best to look after the environment we care so dearly about. Not only is the health of our waterways critical to the boating culture that supports SeaDek, but also to the lifestyle that we enjoy every day with our families. Our coasts are fragile ecosystems that need our help to overcome the effects of pollution caused by the hand of man.

And with that goal, SeaDek is proud to announce its sponsorship of Blue Tube, a non-profit company dedicated to clean beaches and plastic-free oceans. Blue Tubes are bright blue, easy-to-spot containers that hold bags. They are installed at beach crossovers and boat ramps so people can grab a bag, pick up trash, and throw it away when they leave. Beach-goers donate their clean, used bags to the container and the cycle continues!

IMG_3746_edit

The SeaDek sponsored Blue Tubes were recently installed at the Lee Wenner Boat Ramp at Cocoa Village and the MacFarland Boat Ramp at 2100 Indian River Drive in Cocoa.

Next time you a see a Blue Tube on your way to the water, grab a bag and do your part. Don’t believe that this problem is too big to fix. When everyone does a little, together we accomplish a lot.

When we say that the uses for SeaDek are endless, we really mean it! We just received these photos from Scott and Jeanne Kurtz of Contemporary Marine Flooring, a SeaDek Certified Fabricator based in Spokane, Washington.

Their dog, Eddie, loves to go riding with them and just got his own personal trailer so they don’t have to leave him at home. To help him get in and out, and so everyone knew whose trailer it was, Scott made this custom SeaDek pad just for Eddie. Good for you Eddie!

An Unwavering Dedication to Quality Manufacturing

09-16-Quality-Article-Email-Blast_v4

Since our very beginnings with EVA foam over twenty years ago, even long before SeaDek, we have taken great pride in manufacturing high quality products that surpass expectations. Most people probably don’t realize that we were a family business making traction pads for the surfing industry long before the boating world knew what EVA flooring was. We even designed a custom line of pads for 11-time world champion surfer Kelly Slater.

Our materials were painstakingly tested and re-formulated time and time again to reach the benchmark of quality that we demanded, and this dedication to quality is what led us to become the trusted supplier of many of the leading boat builders in the world. We were moving forward, unafraid of failure, on a quest for innovation. And we never thought twice about it. That was just who we were. What we stood for.

And it still is.

While we have grown as a company, our mission has remained unchanged: to deliver the highest quality products possible and provide 100% customer satisfaction 100% of the time.

In 2013 we became an ISO 9001:2008 certified company. The International Standards Organization certifies companies who employ a detailed quality management system and pass a rigorous audit verifying that all aspects of the manufacturing process are in accordance with the system. This certification enables us to accurately manage the quality of our product through every step of production.

Every single batch of foam that enters our factory is subject to extensive testing as specified by the ASTM (American Society of Testing and Materials) to ensure compliance with our quality standards. We have an in-house laboratory with professional, industry-standard testing equipment that is calibrated yearly by a third party organization.  The lab is staffed with full time technicians, and our testing equipment runs 24 hours a day.

After sampling incoming foam, our materials are subject to two weather tests in our specialized accelerated weathering chambers. The first is an artificial UV light chamber, which subjects the material to accelerated UV rays and tests for polymer degradation that would indicate a material non-conformity. The second is another accelerated weather test using xenon light in the visible spectrum to verify color-fastness. Combined, these two tests confirm the material’s ability to stand up to the rigors of outdoor applications without fading or breaking down.

After weather testing, the samples are tested to confirm that their physical properties are within our acceptable parameters, including all adhesives. These ASTM tests include a durometer test that measures hardness, a shrinkage test, compression test, stretch test, and a tear strength test. Additionally, the samples are subject to a 90° peel test and a T peel test to verify the strength of the adhesive.

Once all these tests are completed satisfactorily, the batch of material is cleared to leave quarantine and enter the facility, where it again is inspected every step of the way through production for conformance to our quality standards.

We feel confident that we have the most rigorous material testing procedure in the industry, but at the end of the day, it is our products that speak for themselves. Quality is a full time job, but for us, SeaDek is more than a swim platform pad or a logo or an ad campaign; it is a passion for what we do. It is a love of life on the water. It is who we are.

SeaDek Weathers Hurricane Matthew, Returns to Full Production

As many residents of the Southeast begin to dig out from the impact of Hurricane Matthew, we are fortunate to report that the SeaDek facility and our employees narrowly missed the worst effects of the storm. Thanks to a slight eastward shift late Thursday night, the center of the storm remained just offshore, sparing us the potentially devastating landfall. Damage was limited to downed trees, localized flooding, and minor structural damage, making us extremely lucky to have avoided the brunt of the storm.

IMG_0249

On Tuesday, the forecast indicated a likely Brevard County impact and the decision was made to begin preparations and implement our Hurricane Emergency Preparedness Plan. With many employees under a mandatory evacuation notice from the barrier islands, the SeaDek family banded together and converted the factory into a makeshift storm shelter for employees, families, and pets. After boarding windows and securing the facility, we parked over 30 vehicles amongst our machines on the factory floor and hunkered down to ride out the storm. The strength of the SeaDek team was never more apparent, and the display of camaraderie was truly inspiring.

IMG_0260

SeaDek_Hurricane_Mathew_001While our thoughts are with all those more severely affected by the storm, we are happy to inform our customers that the factory is back to full production capacity as of Monday morning. There should be no disruption to the supply chain, and we thank everyone that has reached out to us during the uncertainty of the storm. Please feel free to contact us with any specific concerns and we will do our best to accommodate.

Grady White Gets SeaDeked

We recently finished a custom factory SeaDek installation on a Grady White 226 Seafarer, and by the end of the install it looked like a completely different boat. Joseph Loffek, the Principal of Gemini Elementary School in Melbourne Beach, FL, initially wanted pads made for his Armstrong bracket, but after scanning the deck, the decision was made to go all the way.

Grady-white-09-16-15

Grady-white-09-16-12Grady-white-09-16-1

Our custom installation team designed pads for the entire boat in Cool Gray over Black with a brushed texture, featuring our new 20mm Dual Density pads on the cabin top and in the helm area. These pads utilize a 17mm low-density bottom layer for increased shock-absorption and comfort, while the 3mm standard density top layer ensures traction and durability. These pads really are the best of both worlds, and are the perfect choice for boaters that spend prolonged periods of time on their feet.
