Aqua Camo Teak SeaDek!

We just got some photos back from United States Army Veteran Larry Soto. Larry is a disabled Iraqi War Veteran who just finished restoring his boat with the purpose of giving other disabled combat veterans the opportunity to go fishing for therapeutic and recreational purposes, and to give fellow comrades a tool to help them cope with their physical, emotional, and psychological wounds. He told us that is his way of changing lives, one warrior at a time.

Larry was looking to give the boat a patriotic aqua military theme, and decided to go with Aqua Camo over Bahama Blue. The Aqua Camo teak turned out looking really great, and Larry couldn’t be happier, saying, “After installing the SeaDek I have had the honor and opportunity of taking veterans and their families out fishing; they certainly enjoyed and appreciated it. Putting a smile on a fellow veteran suffering from a service-related disability is most rewarding to me.”

SeaDek in Larry’s boat keeps the veterans from slipping and provides a soft and comfortable surface for long days on the water. To find the perfect SeaDek for your boat, visit our webstore here.

SeaDek Pitching in to Help the Lagoon, Volunteers Needed

MB Project Flyer 2

SeaDek is joining the Sebastian Inlet Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation to help save the Indian River Lagoon by planting native plants at the shoreline of Ryckman Park in Melbourne Beach, and volunteers are needed.

The goal of the project is to establish a fertilizer-free buffer, filter runoff, and restore habitat by installing beds of Florida-native plants, as living shorelines are one of the biggest contributing factors to the health of the Lagoon.

The Surfrider Foundation will be supported by SeaDek, The Melbourne Beach Garden Club, Maple Street Natives, the Florida Native Plant Society, the Brevard Environmentally Endangered Lands Program, the Brevard Lagoon Coalition, and the Town of Melbourne Beach.

The planting will take place on Saturday, July 16, from 9:00 AM-1:00 PM at Ryckman Park in Melbourne Beach.

This is a great opportunity to do our part and show how much we care about the Lagoon by getting our hands dirty and uniting with other community members to help save this amazing natural resource in peril. Lets show how much we care and get out there!

More information can be found by contacting volunteercoordinator@sebastianinlet.surfrider.org

Stepping It Up with SeaDek

Nothing can prepare you for slipping on a wet dock after you get out of the boat—except SeaDek! Ken from the Shalom Waterski Park in Alberta, Canada contacted us earlier this year to see if we had something to put on his deck and steps to keep the skiers at the park from slipping. He had used carpet and rubber mats in the past and said they were just causing too much damage to people’s skis.

Well we had just the thing for Ken and the Shalom Park. We made custom SeaDek pads for the boat boarding area on the dock and the sets of steps that lead back up to the building. Ken decided to go with Storm Gray/Black with an embossed texture and custom “Shalom Park” logos, and they came out looking great!

SeaDek Keeps Paws Firmly Planted

We just heard back from our canine kayak pal Zeus and his owner Kyle. They received their new custom SeaDek kit for their 2016 Hobie Pro Angler 14 and couldn’t wait to show it off! Kyle picked out some unique colors, with the kit featuring Beach Sand over Snow Camo, and it came out looking really nice on the dune kayak.

06-16 Kyle and Zeus-5

Zeus has been kayaking since he was a puppy, so he’s no stranger to the water. But his paws were constantly slipping off of the kayak and spilling him into the water, so Kyle knew something had to be done. That’s where SeaDek came in, providing Zeus with a comfortable place to sit that would keep him from sliding all around. Now they are cruising with confidence knowing that Zeus won’t be swimming unless he wants to!

SeaDek has patterns for most major makes and models of kayaks, and offers made-to-order kits in the color(s), thickness, and texture of your choosing. Please visit our Kayak Kit Page for more information.
