The weather is still nice down here on Florida’s Space Coast and we took full advantage last week to squeeze in another photo shoot. The boat featured here is a Super Air Nautique G23 with a fully customized SeaDek non-skid kit. This is a one of a kind circuitboard pattern, warm gray over yellow non-skid traction kit (these colors are currently in development and not available for retail sales). The surface texture is a fine brushed pattern and there are routed and knocked out logos throughout. All Nautique boats (http://www.nautique.com/) feature SeaDek from bow to stern and even in the storage areas.

Our crew just installed a brand new sign for our manufacturing facility entrance made right here on our production floor. The lettering is made from our closed-cell, nonabsorbent EVA foam material, just like all of our products, and backed with our 3M™ marine grade PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive). “SeaDek Marine Products” features a unique three color lamination of bimini blue, storm gray, and white.
Back in September we made and installed a custom SeaDek kit for Jim, a member of the crew at Extreme Fishing Adventures (www.extremefishingadventures.tv). Here are some pics of Jim and his Proline out for a day of fishing with Aimee and Janny.Captain Jim with a lucky Red Grouper that got to swim away to be caught another day. Aimee with another lucky Red Grouper.
A couple weeks ago we posted a custom Jackson Coosa kit that we made for the Fishing for Soldiers kayak fishing tournament (www.fishingforsoldiers.com). Here are a few post installation pictures of this prize kayak before being awarded to the event’s top angler:
Well it was a beautiful weekend for the Nautique 2014 U.S. Open of Water Skiing on Lake Ivanhoe in downtown Orlando, FL. The SeaDek crew was on site with samples and giveaways and the SeaDek Super Air Nautique was in the water and pulled the wakesurfing demo. Photos by: Carly McCarthy
The waterskiing action was intense. U.S. water ski athletes Erika Lang (Gilbert, Ariz.), Regina Jaquess (Santa Rosa Beach, Fla.), Nate Smith (McCordsville, Ind.) and Zack Worden (Orlando, Fla.) won titles in respective events. Martin Kolman of the Czech Republic won the men’s overall title; Berdnikava won the women’s jumping title with a distance of 166 feet; and Belarus’ Aliaksei Zharnasek won the men’s tricks title, with 12,070 points.

SeaDek manufactures a wide range of marine products for OEM boat builders,
after-market customers and marine retailers. SeaDek non-skid materials offer safe and comfortable alternatives to molded-in non-skid, paint-on textures and other marine traction products currently available. Made in the USA from UV protected non- absorbent foam, SeaDek features an innovative, textured micro-dot surface for added non-slip characteristics or a unique brushed faux teak finish.
Formulated with an acrylic based high-bond 3M™ pressure sensitive adhesive, SeaDek’s robust, peel-and-stick application makes it easy to install and requires no mounting of hardware. Easy to clean and highly stain resistant, the product also provides protection for boat surfaces, especially in high traffic areas as seen on the tender.
