SeaDek To Exhibit At METS 2014

METSSeaDek Marine Products, the industry leader in innovative marine flooring solutions, is excited to announce that they will be exhibiting at the 2014 METS (Marine Equipment Trade Show) in Amsterdam RAI. The three-day show runs from 18-20 November 2014 and the SeaDek team will be onsite at stand EL.47 in the Construction Material Pavilion to answer questions and highlight new product options.

Durable and shock absorbent, SeaDek provides not only an exceptional traction surface but also lessens the fatigue brought on by prolonged standing and working on hard decking and platforms. SeaDek also protects your deck from scratching, chipping and dents. Fishermen will appreciate SeaDek’s noise reducing qualities.

SeaDek is manufactured in the United States from nonabsorbent, closed cell EVA material specifically formulated for marine applications. Sports & commercial fishing, flats boats, sailboats, ski boats, commercial marine, house boats, personal water craft, platforms and steps are just a few of the unlimited applications for SeaDek Non-Skid Marine Traction. SeaDek’s marine grade 3M™ pressure sensitive adhesive backing makes application a breeze. Just measure, cut, peel and stick. It’s that easy!

SeaDek is available in a variety of sizes, thicknesses and colors. SeaDek replaces the need for molded non-skid, helping OEMs save time and money in their manufacturing processes. SeaDek’s capabilities include:

  • CAD/CAM for precision manufacturing requirements
  • Customized bevels, contours, logos or designs
  • Multi-color laminations
  • Multiple surface textures
  • SeaDek is made in the U.S.A.

The Kayak Fishing BoondoggleTM Combines Educational Workshops and Product Demonstrations with Fishing and Family Fun at KARS Park

Area residents wanting to learn more about kayak fishing are invited to join the educational workshops, product demonstrations, and the Vendor Village at KARS Park this October Columbus Day weekend.

Titusville, Fla. (August 13, 2014) – The Kayak Fishing BoondoggleTM invites all paddling and fishing enthusiasts to join a growing number of kayak anglers from around the nation who will assemble over the Columbus Day weekend, October 10 and 11, 2014 at KARS Park in Merritt Island, FL.

For those who want to learn more about paddling and kayak fishing, you are invited to join the free, family-friendly event which offers educational workshops, product demonstrations, kid’s fun zone, and products for sale in the Boondoggle’s Vendor Village.

Boondoggle weekend festivities begin at 2:00 p.m. on Friday with the Vendor Village exhibits and continue on through an early evening Meet and Greet where food and drink will be on hand for participants to establish friendships and exchange fish stories.

Vendors will open their exhibit booths a second time between 2 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Saturday. Educational workshops and kayak demonstrations are scheduled throughout the day, followed by a catered BBQ dinner and door prizes with a variety of products that have been donated by sponsoring vendors. Prizes consist of kayaks, paddling and fishing gear and accessories.

The Boondoggle supports local charities like Heroes on the Water, which helps our nation’s injured military personnel reintegrate with society through kayak fishing and the outdoors.

“Somehow, everyone who comes to the event becomes a part of the Boondoggle family, even if they’re a newbie,” said Adam Hayes of YakAngler.com. “It’s pretty amazing. We come from different states, but we’re like one big, happy family.”

The Boondoggle isn’t just a bunch of people who like to camp and fish from a kayak – it’s a community of anglers who have become supporting fans, and much loved friends.

The Boondoggle is a four-day camping and kayak fishing event which occurs twice a year over holiday weekends in different locations throughout the southeastern United States. It provides an escape for kayak fishing enthusiasts looking to relax, hang out, and fish with like-minded individuals in a new location. Boondoggle locations are chosen for their pristine waters set against a beautiful landscape, plenty of breathing room, and an abundance of fish.

Marine Resources Council

Great day and a great turn out for Saturday’s habitat restoration on Paul’s Island in the Indian River Lagoon. The event was organized by the Marine Resources Council. We planted mangroves and grasses around the north and east sides of the island. We spend a lot of time working and playing on the Lagoon and it’s really great for our kids to have an opportunity to learn how important it is to give back and take care of this awesome natural resource so that it will be there for their children. Thanks #MRC
