Tom from Kayaks by Bo (kayaksbybo.com) and Chuck from KBB Outfitters (www.kbboutfitters.com) were the guys who introduced us to the kayak side of the marine industry. Back in 2013 they offered up their kayak inventory so we could create templates of their most popular models and begin producing SeaDek kayak kits. Thanks to Tom and Chuck, we have a clientele of kayak anglers and stock of SeaDek kayak kits that is constantly growing.

SeaDek on a Custom Gheenoe Low Tide 25

Thanks to Dustin DeVos for the good words!

“I’ve had SeaDek in my last several boats. The last was my baby. My Custom Gheenoe Low Tide 25. This thing was already the badest little flats skiff I ever owned. Then added the SeaDek Marine Nonskid and it just became incredible. After 30 years of professional angling you know my back and knees are in bad shape. The SeaDek illiminated so much shock and awe it was like breathing new life into my legs. The other thing that is awesome about this product is it’s ability to dampen sound. If you have ever been on top of school of fish and dropped your pliers you appreciate what I am saying. By having the SeaDek installed when those pliers hit the deck it is more of a thud and less of a BANG! Cleans easy and of course you don’t slide. No more rotten carpet in my boats ever again!”

SeaDek Non-skid Options and Pricing

Hewes_3 kits overheadWhen choosing SeaDek non-skid pads for you boat, there is an array of options to choose from.  Kits can range from a basic one-color kit that provides excellent traction and comfort to a two-color kit with additional cushion and custom graphics. Here’s a break down of a few of the most popular options displayed on a Hewes Redfisher 18 flats boat:

5mm Embossed Kit – Approximately $2300
iBoats_Hewes_5mm5mm close up

This kit is 5mm thick throughout and covers the entire deck. Made from SeaDek’s closed-cell, non-absorbent, EVA foam, this kit will provide comfort, traction when wet or dry, and protect the surface of your boat.

6mm Brushed Kit with Helm Pad – Approximately $2840
iBoats_Hewes_6mm6mm close up6mm close up2

This 6mm kit allows for two colors of foam: one for the top with a brushed texture and one for the bottom that shows as a boarder with the beveled edges. The kit also includes a 13mm helm pad for extra comfort and to help lessen fatigue from standing for long hours on the water.

6mm Brushed Kit with Faux Teak Cockpit and Custom Graphics – Approximately $3200
iBoats_Hewes_6mmGraphicsTeak Close up2Teak close up Alan2

This is a 6mm 2-color brushed kit and has all of the bells and whistles. It includes a 13mm helm pad, as well as a 13mm poling platform pad and 13mm bench seating for added comfort while fishing and hanging out. The seating has a routed fish ruler for a quick and easy way to measure all of the fish you catch. The cockpit pads feature faux teak lines running bow to stern. Another nice addition to this kit is the graphics.  Custom graphics such as boat names, fish, and logos can be routed into your pads to personalize your SeaDek.

All of the above kits are made from SeaDek’s high-quality, UV protected material and is easily applied using our marine grade 3M pressure sensitive adhesive.

These kits were created for Alan Rylan, a competitive fisherman in the Central Florida area. He decided to go with the 6mm brushed kit with graphics for the upgraded thickness and fish ruler. This option is great for fisherman that spend long hours on the water, by providing additional anti-fatigue qualities with the 13mm helm pad and poling platform.

*The photos above are for comparison purposes, so the kits were not adhered to the boat. Although the 6mm faux teak kit has a Hewes logo, we are not currently offering manufacturer logos on our products. The large SeaDek logos on the 6mm faux teak kit are swap out prototypes and not currently available for order.

For more information on ordering a custom kit for your boat, please contact customer service at: customerservice@seadek.com or 321-632-4466.

SeaDek & Oracle Team USA Support Vessel Refit

Last week we visited the Oracle Team USA headquarters in transit at Pier 80 in San Francisco. Much of the crew and infrastructure are on their way to their new home in Bermuda in preparation for the 2017 America’s Cup races. We where there to refit several of the support vessels from the 2013 season. Two #SeaDeked Naiads (www.naiad.co.nz) and one Protector (www.protectorboats.com) will be making the transition to the Atlantic to be followed by several more boats in the months to come.

Naiad_Oracle_Gray_005 Oracle_Team_USA_001

SeaDek, an industry leader in innovative marine non-skid products, has been named a Technical Supplier of ORACLE TEAM USA, the champion America’s Cup team. In 2013, ORACLE TEAM USA successfully defended its title in the AC72 class – wingsail powered catamarans that flew above the water on hydrofoils at over 50 mph (90kph). SeaDek outfitted the team’s fleet of support vehicles and provided EVA non-skid hatch covers for the AC45s.

SeaDek and ThorAir

Here’s a set of jet hanger mats we made for ThorAir, a sister company to ThorWorks Industries. These SeaDek mats are 23mm thick with an etched design and swap out logos.

ThorAir-SeadekMats6

“ThorAir owner Duke Thorson and Pilot Rick Eyles are very particular about ThorAir’s jet and facilities. When not in use, the 10-person plane is parked in a hanger, which of course has a waterproof, concrete floor, but the SeaDek mats were purchased to provide extra protection as a vapor barrier for the aircraft’s tires. An additional mat is placed at the base of the jet’s stairs for boarding. It serves as an attractive ‘welcome’ mat for anyone entering the plane.”
