About SeaTow (from www.seatow.com)
Sea Tow has been the on-water assistance fleet of choice for boaters since 1983. A franchise-based marine assistance organization headquartered in Southold, New York, Sea Tow was founded in 1983 by Captain Joseph Frohnhoefer after the U.S Coast Guard stopped responding to non-emergency calls.

Since that time, Sea Tow has grown into a thriving network of nearly 100 locations across the United States with additional offices in Europe and the Caribbean. This network consists of a dedicated team of captains, crew and support staff that are standing by, 24/7, to serve our members and other boaters.

Nautique Boat Building – Bring Your Child to Work Day 2015

Boat1

Last week we made a set of mini boats to be constructed at Nautique’s “Bring Your Child to Work Day”. Each little engineer got to build and decorate their very own Super Air Nautique G23, fully made out of SeaDek EVA foam. The kids decorated their boats with markers, crayons and stickers to make each of them unique.

This little boat builder was super excited to show me his hand crafted boat named “The Colorful.”

“This custom cart is the first one out of our new SVD (special vehicle division) that we introduced earlier this year. This build was based on a 2007 Club Car Precedent 48 volt electric golf cart. It is powered by Trojan batteries and is rolling on 12” Shift wheels from Fairway Alloys.

Everything was done in house from the tower fabrication to paint and upholstery and even the windshield accents were cut on our new CNC router table.” – Jeffery H. of SC Carts

Thanks for the great photos Jeffery!

Jackson Cuda 14 SeaDek Kit Review

Here’s a great product review that Ty of ShallowWaterz.com wrote on the SeaDek kit he recently ordered for his Jackson Cuda 14 (jacksonkayak.com):

If there’s anything I’ve learned while on the water, it’s that being stealthy is a necessity. Something as simple as bumping a push pole on the side of a poling platform or lightly knocking a paddle on a kayak can cause a fish to go from feeding to high alert in an instant. One thing I always take note of when purchasing a new vessel is the different vibrations it puts off when you do different things.

static1.squarespace

For Instance, when I bought my Jackson Cuda 14 this year I noticed I would make a very subtle noise every time I stood up or sat down. Often times I would see a tailing redfish as I was standing, and would quickly sit down to approach from a seated position. While most people wouldn’t even notice this noise, I found that on some occasions the fish would either stop tailing or disappear completely if I was within casting distance of said fish. Something I couldn’t live with!

static1.squarespace

As a sight fishing fanatic, I spend more time standing and slowly paddling/pushing (which my Cuda 14 allows me to do comfortably) with the paddle than I do sitting while in my kayak. While this is one of the best ways to approach fish to sight cast to, it leaves you with the problem of having to do something with your paddle once you do locate the targeted species. I’ve found that gently placing my paddle on the gunnels (sides) of my kayak, and quietly picking up a rod to make a cast is the best method for me. Unfortunately, often times this will also cause a light noise and vibration that the fish can detect. Not to mention if it’s windy, your paddle will probably roll around and knock from side to side much like a teeter totter.

To this day, my Cuda 14 has yet to fail me with getting to the fish; but being human as I am, I have sent many a fish bolting off the flat due to being a little noisy on the water. After making a post on the Space Coast Kayak Anglers Group on Facebook regarding these concerns of mine, I received a lot of different info on how to make my kayak a little more stealthy. I found that luckily for those of us who aren’t quiet as a mouse, there is a noise reducing product out there for your skiff made by SeaDek.

static1.squarespace-1

A few days before the Punta Gorda IFA Kayak Tour in February, I decided to give SeaDek a call and order some non skid pads for my kayak. Not only did it arrive quickly with simple step by step instructions on how to install, but it was also pre cut to fit my kayak. In a matter of about an hour, I had SeaDek on the areas where my paddle, push-pole, and fishing rods rest; under my seat to reduce noise when standing/sitting; and just about anywhere I could set foot on my kayak for those times when I haven’t quite found my sea legs!

static1.squarespace-2

The morning after I installed all my non-skid pads, I ventured out to Pine Island Sound to prefish for the IFA Punta Gorda event and put my SeaDek to the test. I’ll let the pictures do the talking!

static1.squarespace-3 static1.squarespace-4static1.squarespace-5

With the added stealth from the new SeaDek Pads, I was literally able to come within a few feet of a tailing redfish in about 8″ of water. Although I didn’t get an eat from the fish pictured above, I was amazed at how close I could get to take pics or make a cast. Being able to set my paddle down without making any noise has been a game changer while sight fishing. Jackson puts grooves on their kayak to keep your paddle from rolling around…add a little SeaDek and it’s fool proof. Simply set down your paddle, pick up your rod, and make that money cast.

Also, for those like myself who believe in comfort over anything, the cushion on my feet made things much easier on my back and is just overall much more comfortable. It makes it much more bearable being out on the water for 12 hours at times!

After my first encounter with this product, I doubt I’ll ever own another skiff without it! Whether you’re fishing, shooting pics, or just enjoying the water from a kayak, flats skiff, or any boat; I highly recommend checking out SeaDek!

*Faux Teak kayaks kits are not generally produced due to the small parts most kayaks require. This PA 17 is an exception because the parts are larger than most kayak kits and we used a smaller, custom faux teak pattern.

About the 2015 Mirage Hobie Pro Angler 17T – from www.hobiecat.com/mirage/mirage-pro-angler-17

PA17_8The new Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 17T is a fishing machine with comfort, stability and room for everything you need, including another person. Plus, it’s powered by the patented Hobie MirageDrive pedal system.

The fully adjustable Vantage XT seating can be setup in multiple configurations: in-line tandem, face-to-face social tandem, or as a single. The PA17T is the perfect platform to teach a young one how to fish, take your family member out, or simply fish hard with your best fishing buddy. Fishing rod storage, both front and rear, holds up to 12 rods and the new H-Rail System allows you to customize accessory placement.

Both users can stand and fish in comfort and each cockpit is fitted with a large rectangular hatch with pivoting tackle management system; there’s even additional under-seat storage for bringing plenty of tackle boxes. The Lowrance® Ready feature with pre-installed thru-hull cable plug outlets makes adding most fishfinders easy. Use it “guide style” where the aft passenger provides power and puts the front angler on the fish or add an optional trolling motor to use it like a bass boat. Add the optional Livewell XL for storing your catch or taking plenty of live bait.

The hull will cut through ocean swells and the drop down skeg provides solid tracking over long voyages. With three rudder control steering handles, you can position the boat from any seating location while you or your buddy battles the big one. This vessel has found its niche through human propulsion via the MirageDrive, the ability to launch in no-motor zones or areas with no boat ramp, and minimal maintenance thanks to its durable polyethylene hull and rigid components.
