Video: SeaDek vs. Competition

Not all PE/EVA foam products are created equal. When it comes to flooring for your boat, be careful when considering knock-off products to avoid a costly mistake. While competing products may look similar at the time of installation, many will fail and break down in short order when exposed to the elements, with dramatic consequences.

Genuine SeaDek is manufactured from the highest quality materials available, and rigorous testing is performed continuously to ensure that our products live up to their name and provide years of trouble-free use.

We recently had the chance to help out a captain who had used an imitation material, and the consequences were ugly. Luckily, our custom install technicians were able to remove the offending product, and we produced new Genuine SeaDek pads to get his boat back into shape.

Don’t let this happen to you and your boat—always demand Genuine SeaDek!

Factory Installation on an MTI SV42

When it comes to speed, luxury, and performance, few can compete with Marine Technology INC, manufacturer of high-end power catamarans and mono hulls that combine the comforts of cruising with the exhilaration of offshore racing.

We recently had a brand new Slot V42 come through the factory for a SeaDek install, and man, what a boat! Custom SeaDek was the final step in the build, and our technicians performed a flawless installation that provided the perfect combination of function and flair.

Australian Pick-up Boat Gets SeaDeked

Australian SeaDek Certified Fabricator Aggravated Cutting has been hard at work cutting and installing SeaDek on boats all around Australia. This recent project was pretty unique—the pick-up boat for Wakeboard Victoria! They use this boat for picking up fallen riders in tournaments, and according to Ross, it was looking pretty sad and unloved.

But SeaDek is perfect for breathing new life into old boats! Ross digitized the pick-up boat and designed a fully custom SeaDek kit in Storm Gray over Black with the club’s logo in Bimini Blue prominently on display in the center. He even used 5mm Black embossed on the sides where the riders climb in for extra safety and durability.

Apparently the club was pretty impressed with the end result—nice work Ross!

SeaDek’s Amanda Bisset Featured in EDC’s Manufacturing Campaign

As an employer of over 130 full time employees in Brevard County, Florida, SeaDek takes pride in providing quality manufacturing jobs to local residents, and growing the regional economy through their continued expansion. And with technology steering the course of modern manufacturing in the 21st century, these jobs are not the manufacturing jobs of our grandparents—computers, high tech machinery, and skilled workers utilizing technology to overcome challenges have replaced the stereotypical dark and dingy factory of the past.

The Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast has long been an advocate for manufacturing in Brevard, and their newest campaign, See manufacturing through new eyes, brings local manufacturing companies and their employees into the spotlight, with the goal of opening doors and creating new things to consider about manufacturing careers.

SeaDek’s Amanda Bisset, a Quality Assurance Technician, was chosen to represent SeaDek in the campaign after recently completing her CPT (Certified Production Technician) training. After moving into the quality department, Amanda has proven to be a major asset to the company, taking on responsibilities to maintain SeaDek’s ISO 9001:2015 certification, and other duties to ensure finished goods leaving the factory meet the strict quality standards customers have come to expect from SeaDek.

Congratulations Amanda, SeaDek is proud to have you as part of the team!

SeaDek Supplies Team Brunel in Volvo Ocean Race

As the Volvo Ocean Race kicked off on Sunday, the crew of Team Brunel was sure-footed as they departed Alicante en route to Lisbon with custom SeaDek non-skid installed throughout their VOR 65. As the official team of the Netherlands, Team Brunel is one of only seven teams embarking on a journey that puts the human will and spirit to the ultimate test in some of the fiercest ocean conditions on the planet.

After reaching Lisbon, the second leg of the race will take the teams through the Southern Atlantic to Cape Town, in a potentially grueling stretch of water that is sure to challenge the most experienced sailors.

Earlier in the season, Team Brunel contacted the SeaDek team in hopes of installing SeaDek’s innovative PE/EVA nonskid products throughout their Volvo Ocean Race 65. With a short timeframe to work around as the boat was undergoing preparations for the race, UK-based SeaDek Certified Fabricator Pro-Cast was able to cut the parts and make the trip to Lisbon to perform a stellar installation on the boat—just in time for the beginning of the race. Without SeaDek’s extensive international presence, such a quick turnaround may not have been possible.

SeaDek is proud to support the crew of Team Brunel in their bid for The Trophy, and looks forward to an exciting race among the world’s premier sailors!

“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!
