SeaDek Provides Innovative Decking Products to SoftBank Team Japan’s Challenge for the America’s Cup

04-17_SoftBankTeamJapan_FINAL

Rockledge, FL, April 28, 2017—SeaDek Marine Products, the industry-leading manufacturer of EVA non-skid products, has been named a contributor of SoftBank Team Japan in their campaign for the 35th America’s Cup. Their innovative decking surfaces will be utilized on the team’s America’s Cup Class Yacht, a nearly 50 foot foiling catamaran, as well as other applications to provide exceptional traction for the crew and support staff.

After a 15-year hiatus, Japan’s return to America’s Cup sailing marks a new chapter for the team. Led by skipper and CEO Dean Barker, the team has established a base at the Royal Naval Dockyard in Bermuda in 2015 in preparation for the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger series starting on May 26, 2017.

SeaDek’s products are an invaluable addition to the fleet thanks to advanced non-skid characteristics that enable the sailors to safely maintain contact with the boat in the extreme conditions that define America’s Cup sailing.

“We are thrilled to be contributing to SoftBank Team Japan in their bid for the America’s Cup,” said Jason Gardner, vice president of marketing and advertising at SeaDek. “With so much advanced technology going into the design and construction of these boats, we are honored to stand alongside the best in the industry to support the team.”

SeaDek® for Cabin Floors

While SeaDek  is best known for outside applications like cockpits and swim platforms, many boaters don’t realize that it performs just as well inside the boat. Carpet gets wet and dirty, and traditional teak can be slick and dangerous, making SeaDek the perfect solution below decks.

In addition to its exceptional nonskid properties and comfort underfoot, SeaDek requires none of the maintenance associated with other flooring materials, and protects belongings from damage in rolling seas.

JetBoat Pilot, a SeaDek Certified Fabricator based in Panama City, Florida, recently sent over these photos of a SeaDek installation in the cabin of a 2007 Ranger 25 tugboat. Mocha over Camel faux teak did the trick for this tug; nice job guys!

SeaDek to Join Captains for Clean Water in Tallahassee for the Now Or Neverglades Sport Fishing Day

Visit underscores need for immediate action to address water crisis

Reinforcing their commitment to the health and restoration of the Everglades and all of Florida’s waterways, SeaDek will be joining Captain’s For Clean Water at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee for the Now Or Neverglades Florida Sport Fishing Day.

video

On Tuesday, April 11, captains, fishing guides, anglers, and industry leaders will converge on Capitol Hill to make their collective voices heard by legislators and elected officials from all districts of Florida.

Their goal is to persuade legislators to restore the natural southern flow of lake waters by utilizing funds to acquire land south of Lake Okeechobee. By restoring this flow, damaging fresh water outflows to the eastern and western estuaries would diminish, and the Everglades would return to a more natural salinity level that it’s ecosystem needs to flourish.

The event will feature meetings on Capitol Hill, exhibits from many prominent companys in the marine and sport fishing industries, and a party at the Edison restaurant in Cascade Park. The SeaDek team will be on hand at the park in the SeaDek tent with giveaways, and will also have representation at the Capitol. Everyone who has an interest in the health of Florida’s waterways is encouraged to attend to support this movement-time is running out to save this precious resource.

About Captains For Clean Water
Captains for Clean Water is a grassroots 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that advocates for the elimination of harmful, large-scale Lake Okeechobee discharges into the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie River Estuaries by restoring the natural flow of Lake Okeechobee water south into the Everglades and Florida Bay. Restoring the natural southern flow of Lake Okeechobee water is essential to the survival of our estuaries, the health of the Everglades, and the long-term viability of South Florida’s largest drinking water source (the Biscayne Aquifer).
