SeaDek Creates Trophies for WWA Rider Experience Contests

Swim platforms, coolers, cockpits, and now, trophies! Well, we always tell people that the uses for SeaDek are endless, and we mean it. To be honest, trophies weren’t on my list of possible applications, but hey, leave it to our design team to come up with some killer, out-of-the-box, ideas. 05-16_Masters_Trophys-1         05-16_Masters_Trophys-10

The trophies are for the first place winners of the World Wakeboard Association’s Malibu Rider Experience (http://www.thewwa.com/riderexperience/), which is a series of regionally placed amateur events around the United States for all WWA amateur divisions and Jr. pro Men’s. Riders at these events will be competing for the top spot in their respective divisions, as well as earning a spot in the WWA U.S. Wakeboard National Championships.

The first stop of the event just went off as a huge success for the Western region at Lake Las Vegas on May 13-15. The riders had a great event, and by the looks of the pictures we received, they were loving the trophies!

SeaDek Supports ORACLE TEAM USA at America’s Cup World Series New York

On May 7th and 8th, as Technical Suppliers of  ORACLE TEAM USA, SeaDek personnel were on hand to witness the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series New York. The race was an historic event, returning to New York Harbor for the first time since 1920 and drawing an estimated crowd of over 175,000.

After a gloomy training day on Friday, and a sunny but calm first racing day on Saturday, Sunday brought a fresh breeze and fair skies, making for ideal racing conditions. The teams were sailing at 17 knots across the Hudson River, wowing the masses of excited spectators and vying for critical points that will count towards the 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda next year.

Jason Gardner, VP of Marketing at SeaDek, and Serenity Gardner, Chief Operating Officer, were on the front lines of the race catching the action on film and providing updates on social media.

In the final winner-take-all race on Sunday afternoon, ORACLE TEAM USA was tied in points with Emirates Team New Zealand. Dealing with shifting winds and stiff currents, Emirates Team New Zealand came from behind on the final leg of the race to secure first place, with ORACLE TEAM USA coming in a close second.

American Boating Congress Productive for SeaDek

On May 9-11, SeaDek Marine Products joined a Florida Delegation at the American Boating Congress (https://www.nmma.org/government/abc) in Washington DC, where they met with representatives of the Senate and Congress to bring attention to issues directly impacting the recreational boating industry.

Jason Gardner, co-owner and VP of Marketing, and Serenity Gardner, Chief Operating Officer, traveled to the Capitol to build and strengthen relationships with representatives who play a key role in legislation that expressly affects boating in America.

Among others, they addressed Senator Bill Nelson, Congressman Bill Posey, Congressman Patrick Murphy, Congressman Daniel Webster, and Senator Marco Rubio.

ABC_Edits_small-1

“It was our first year attending the ABC,” said Jason Gardner, “And it was refreshing to bring issues to the table that we deal with everyday as a growing company in the marine industry. Our elected leaders work for us, and it is important that they understand how certain policies directly affect how we do business.”

ABC_Edits_small-3

One topic of concern was skilled workforce development.

At the center of the workforce issue is a nationwide shortage of skilled workers entering the marine industry. There are shortages everywhere, and states, along with various organizations are scrambling to combat the problem. One solution is a Jobs Act that would help fund community college programs focused on non-secondary education and vocational training.

“We’ve got some great employees, and not everyone here needs a four year education to be a great fit for our company. The problem is, we have guys on the factory floor that we would love to use inside, say as a CAD designer for instance, and it is tough to bear the burden of providing the necessary education to bring these guys up to speed, “ said Gardner.

Another prominent issue was trade, and specifically, U.S. exporting.

Over the last few years, SeaDek has been working to bring their products to new markets overseas. Determining new international markets and developing plans to reach them is a monumental task, and Enterprise Florida—with special help from Larry Bernaski— has proven to be a major asset through the process.

Enterprise Florida is a public-private partnership between Florida’s business and government leaders, and is the principal economic development organization of Florida. For SeaDek, Enterprise Florida has helped to offset the cost of exhibiting at trade shows in Europe, assisting in acquiring grant money to develop an export development plan, and supported efforts to evaluate and determine which overseas markets would best support SeaDek. “This program has been such a great resource for us, and we have a lot of respect for them,” said Gardner.

After such a successful trip to The Hill, SeaDek is already looking forward to next year. As a growing company providing employment and security for many Brevard county residents, SeaDek is helping to grow its local economy one job at a time. Gardner said, “SeaDek is boosting manufacturing on the Space Coast; and by communicating our needs and concerns with our elected officials, we can push for policies that allow businesses like ours to continue moving forward and helping to rebuild our economy.”

Using SeaDek to Baby Proof a 1986 Sea Squirt

Recently we had a worried father ask us if we could SeaDek his entire boat so it would be child-proofed for his new baby. He wanted to introduce his child to the boating lifestyle at a young age, but wanted to do it safely.  So, we covered his entire boat with soft and durable SeaDek so he can now feel comfortable knowing that the baby isn’t going to slip and fall while on the boat. This father now has peace of mind knowing that the young boater will be safe, making their time on the water more pleasurable for them both.

See before and after pictures of his 1986 Sea Squirt , which is equipped with 6mm Cool Gray over Black faux teak below:

More Great Reviews From Our Customers

Summer is around the corner and things are really starting to heat up around the SeaDek factory. Boating season is upon us, and judging by our customers, people are ready to get back on the water!

And naturally, preparation for many boaters includes SeaDek. We have been hard at work creating all types of kits and custom projects for boaters around the world, and our customers have been really excited about it, sending us some great reviews that we want to share with you.

Our first review comes from Chris in East Windsor Connecticut:

I mistakenly ordered the wrong year template for my Hobie Pro Angler 12 but a quick call to customer service resolved the matter with no issues. Of course I confessed to being a total dolt but nonetheless they patched things up ASAP, adjusted to charge my card the correct amount and my product was delivered with no issues

I would up going 6mm camel, black bevel edge, brushed and it looks KILLER on my boat. Quite honestly Hobie should partner up with Seadek and offer this product as a factory install. It’s quiet, no slip and makes things feel very friendly under foot. Especially for an out of shape, overweight, lazy accountant like myself 🙂

I HIGHLY recommend this product because it is quality and the company behind it is also quality. Trust in Seadek, and you won’t be disappointed

 I bought the Cuda 12 whole kit. I have a tan kayak and bought the army camo so the colors and the kayak just pop. The SeaDek feels great on my bare feet and doesn’t seem to get hot while I’m out in the sun all day. If you want your kayak to look and feel awesome, spend the $100 and customize it…

Ian from Florida’s Gulf Coast sent us some pictures of their new Yeti Cooler pad and a description of the boat:

 It’s a 24 foot pirate ship that sails the Gulf of Mexico out of Crystal River, scouring her bottom for the finest booty she has to offer. We fish for trout, sharks, cobia, grouper, and snapper, and snorkel/dive for Scallops.”

 And finally, Steve on Kentucky Lake used SeaDek on his boat lift to avoid any unintended swims:

“I applied the Seadek to the top of the boat lift tubes. Now no more slipping when working around the boat.”

JetBoat Pilot SeaDeks a Sea Ray 450

We just received another set of photos from Will at JetBoat Pilot. This time he Deked Sirens’ Song, a 1996 Sea Ray 450 (www.searay.com). Sirens’ Song was ready for a facelift, and she truly looks like a brand new boat after having a new SeaDek kit installed. The customers decided to go with a traditional teak plank look, using Mocha/Black with a brushed faux teak texture.
