Simple Anti-Slip Pads For Your Trailer Fenders

Product Spotlight article from iBoats December e-newsletter

Are your fenders “naked”?

The tire fenders of your trailer may have had some kind of anti-skid material on them when your trailer was new, or maybe it didn’t. It could have been that real nasty sandpaper stuff or even more marine carpeting that was poorly glued to the top of each fender. Maybe it did or didn’t but, it sure should. We all use our fenders to either reach into our boat for loading and unloading or to help us climb up and in. Some trailer manufacturers build in diamond-plate or molded anti-skid into the top of their fenders. If your anti-skid is gone or never was there, here’s a simple fix.

SeaDek Step Kits are the perfect solution for slippery trailer fenders, steps, boat ladders, and a number of other applications. Each kit comes with four 3.5″ x 12″ pieces of 5mm thick, non-absorbent EVA foam material that provide excellent traction when wet or dry, and each piece is backed with 3M™ pressure sensitive adhesive to provide an easy peel-and-stick application. SeaDek Step Kits are available in a variety of colors. For this article, we picked a really bright blue and a nautical blue camo pattern to really stand out and to show you what’s available in stock shapes and patterns.

The SeaDek pads have super grip nubbies over softer backing material so you won’t slip when wearing shoes and won’t take skin off the bottoms of your bare feet.

The pads are “peel and stick” backed for quick and easy installation. The adhesive is “marine grade” which normally means you pay double for just the word “marine” but from SeaDek you don’t get “stuck”, you do get some of the best “stick” in the marine industry.

Custom shapes are also available. You can even have a particular logo custom cut into the pad.

Standard step kits are available at:

SeaDek Hosts Melbourne High School Business Academy

2014 marks the third year in a row that SeaDek Marine Products hosted the Melbourne High School Business Academy. The student were give a tour of the new 74,000 square foot fabrication facility in Rockledge, FL and a peek inside the workings of a growing US manufacturing company. They learned about what it takes to survive and grow in a recovering economy, what skill companies are looking for in future employees, the importance of innovation, creativity and a diverse skill set to a US manufacturer.


The students were great and had many insightful questions. We were also very impressed with all of the new product ideas they came up with at the end of the tour and are looking forward to a product development competition after the holiday break.

We’d like to that all the students who came out and say a special thank you to their exceptional teacher, Erik Perna. We actually have three of his former students working  for us and the impact he had upon them can not be overstated. We are luck to have leaders like Erik in our community building and influencing the leaders and innovators of tomorrow.

METS sets record for attendance, exhibitors

reposted from:

The numbers don’t lie – the 2014 METS was the biggest ever, with record numbers of both exhibitors and visitors.


A total of 21,086 people attended the world’s largest marine equipment trade show, which wrapped up Thursday in Amsterdam, Netherlands. This beats the record 20,500 exhibitors who attended METS ins 2013, and according to show organizers, includes 6.5 percent more international visitors and 3 percent more decision-makers than the previous year.

Exhibitor numbers also set a new record this year, with 1,358 companies from 46 different countries showing a diverse range of marine equipment. That figure also surpasses 2013’s total of 1,320 exhibitors, which was also a record. Exhibitor booths filled seven buildings and included no less than 18 country pavilions.

“As impressive as these figures are, the real tribute to the success of METS 2014 was the bustling atmosphere throughout the RAI complex,” says Irene Dros, Maritime Domain Manager at host venue Amsterdam RAI. “From the excellent Breakfast Briefing on the opening morning of the show to the final deal struck on the exhibition floor, from the high degree of knowledge exchange at the complementary conferences to the networking fun at the various social gatherings, METS was a great place to be.”

Traffic at the desk to rebook exhibit space for 2015 was brisk on the final day, with an astounding 62 percent of exhibitors having already rebooked their space by the end of the show.

“This has been a great experience,” said Jason Gardner, VP of Marketing and Advertising for SeaDek Products, located directly across the aisle from the Material Experience exhibit. “This is our first time at METS and it’s been great. We came here not knowing a lot about the European market, and we’re pleasantly surprised. We’ve already rebooked for next year. The number of OEMs, boat designers, manufacturers, fabricators and distributors that we’ve spoken with is encouraging and we’ve already received firm orders, which is great for our first visit.”

“The first day was good, the second day was excellent and while the crowds were a bit thinner on the Thursday, we’re very happy with the outcome of the show,” said Mick Webber at Hydro Hoist. “We signed some new business and that’s what we came here to do.”

“Now the work starts to emulate this success again at METS 2015,” said Irene Dros. “And, to raise the bar even further!”

The 28th METS will be held from November 17 to 19, 2015, at the Amsterdam RAI Convention Centre, the Netherlands.
