Tim Wakefield Project & Event Sponsorship

TimWakefiled Header PIc

Here’s an insight into one of the many great projects we get to work on at the SeaDek Manufacturing and Installation Facility. In November we created and installed a custom SeaDek kit for former Boston Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield. We’d like to thank Willie Wehrman at Marine Max for providing a boat for us to use to create the template for Wakefield’s Sea Ray 240 Sundeck. Here are a few pictures from the project.

Before and After

Tim Wakefield is a supporter of the Space Coast Early Intervention Center (SCEIC) and this project provided an opportunity for SeaDek to get involved with this great organization. SCEIC is a preschool in Brevard County dedicated to the education and development of children with and without disabilities. SeaDek will be a Hole-in-One sponsor for SCEIC’s 23rd Annual Tim Wakefield Celebrity Golf Classic & Memorabilia Auction. The event will take place on January 23rd & 24th, 2015.

Choosing the right marine non-skid traction pads

SeaDek Marine Products (http://www.seadek.com/) has led the marine traction pad industry for over a decade now and we’ve done it by focusing on improving the quality of our materials and manufacturing techniques to suit the rugged marine environment. There are a couple of cheaper knock-off products out there and we understand that sometimes price is the bottom line for particular customers. That said, be careful when selecting generic non-skid traction pads for your boat, it may end up costing you in the end.

SeaDek is made from EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) foam. We have worked long and hard to develop a formulation that is both comfortable and durable. While no foam product will be 100% sunproof, our material has enhanced UV inhibitors that allow it to hold up under long exposure to sun and water. Cheap, unprotected EVA materials will look and feel like SeaDek when they are first produced but will quickly break down and disintegrate. The result will be a horrible looking mess that will need to be replaced long before a SeaDek pad.

After 250 hours in our QUV SE Accelerated Weather Tester*
SeaDek-NotSeaDek

We’ve been doing side by side testing of SeaDek and some knock-off materials and the results are striking. After 250 hours in our QUV SE Accelerated Weather Tester* the generic products have broken down, cracked and become visually unappealing. The SeaDek enhanced EVA has held up far better and remains structurally sound and visually appealing. (See testing details at bottom of page).

This material difference applies not only to our aftermarket products but also to the products we supply to our OEM boat builders. If you are buying a new boat with an EVA non-skid product included, make sure it’s SeaDek. Odds are it already is, as we supply pads to most of the leading boat builders in the industry, but we encourage you to ask the manufacturer just to be sure.

Examples of non-SeaDek pads. Note the poor lamination, poor adhesion and poor cut quality on the logoed areas.

Toys for Tots Swim Platform Pad

We just finished a custom SeaDek swim platform pad for Underfoot Marine (www.underfootmarineproducts.com – formerly Wave Noize). This storm gray over black pad has a brushed finish with routed Toys for Tots and Underfoot Marine Products logos.

Toys for Tots

Last weekend Underfoot Marine donated the toys in the boat during a Toys for Tots Poker Run in Palatka Florida, hosted by the U.S. Marine Corps. Being the only marine benefit geared specifically for Toys for Tots, this Poker Run is a one of a kind event.

Here’s a glimpse of the boats that participated in the event.
