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.

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.

Finished this one up just in time. The crew was shrink wrapping it for loading onto a Bermuda-bound container ship.

SeaDek Marine Products is a leading manufacturer of a range of EVA non-skid products for marine and sports use. A viable alternative to carpet and molded-in nonskid products, SeaDek’s line of products are targeted for OEM boat builders, resellers and end-users. The company was originally formed to produce cutting-edge surf products and nonskid traction pads, including X-Trak® surf traction and K-Grip®, a line of pads designed for world champion surfer Kelly Slater.

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.”

DIY Sheet Material Project

DIY7Here’s a really cool DIY project sent in by Murphy, one of our sheet material customers. He covered his boat in Army Camo and Olive Green sheet material by creating his own template, cutting the pieces to fit his boat, and even making his own beveled edges. Below are a few pictures of his templating process followed by shots of his newly SeaDeked boat.

Step1 Step2 Step4 Step5 Step6 Step7 Step8 Step9 Step10

 

Thanks for the detailed shots Murphy. Your boat came out great!

SeaDek Sheet Material is perfect for DIY projects. Made from non-absorbent, closed cell EVA foam, our sheet material can be cut to fit any number of applications with a sharp razor knife. Like our other SeaDek products, sheet material is backed with our simple peel-and-stick backing which makes application a breeze. Sheet Material is available in a variety of colors and sizes on our webstore: www.seadek.com/c-5-sheet-material.aspx.

2008 Sea Ray 270 SLX Swim Platform and Walk-through

One of our customers, Phil, just sent us some photos of his newly SeaDeked Sea Ray 270 SLX. He templated his boat using one of our template kits and when the pads were complete, he installed them himself as well. 270SLX2

“I did the templates and the install myself. The process was really quite easy, and the end results were great.”- Phil

SeaDek and the Martin County Sheriff’s Department

K9

Check out this custom install project we did for the Martin County Sheriff’s department (www.sheriff.martin.fl.us). This 2004 25′ Contender (contenderoffshore.com) features storm gray over black SeaDek to provide stability and comfort for their K9 Samson.

The slick gelcoat on boats can often cause dogs to slip around, making them feel uncomfortable while boarding and walking around. SeaDek’s soft yet durable EVA foam material provides exceptional traction for dogs and allows them to move around on the deck without loosing footing. This is especially important for dogs like the Martin County K9, who spend long hours on the water.

Dogs love SeaDek too! To see more photos of pups and their SeaDek, visit our Dogs Love SeaDek Flickr album.

About Wake the World
Wake the World is a non-profit organization that was founded in North Carolina by 8 friends and their families who hosted kids from local children’s homes for a day on the lake. Seven years later, Wake the World has become a widespread event serving children across the US and Canada.

The first event of the 2015 Wake The World is only a few weeks away. The 7th Annual FUNDraiser called Wake n Flake is being held on March 7, 2015. Participants pay to wakeboard (ski, kneeboard, surf, or tube) and then head to the mountain on the same day! Last year there were 136 participants from 7 states, 9 boat dealers, 5 lakes, 2 cable parks, and 1 mountain.

For more information for this years event, visit www.wakenflake.com or www.waketheworld.org and follow Walk the World on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/pages/Wake-the-World/125323470976437.
