SeaDek Kayak Testimonial

Mike Kogan, founder of JaxKayakFishing.com, ordered SeaDek for his Native Slayer 14.5 and sent us some pictures of his newly SeaDeked kayak and this awesome testimonial:

NativeSlayer NativeSlayer2

“I am totally blown away by SeaDek’s kayak products. I recently installed their kit on a Native Slayer 14.5, and it was cut perfectly, was simple to install, and looks and performs great. Not only does it enhance grip on the deck for standing and keeping items from sliding around, it looks sensational, and also makes the kayak quieter which is always important when fishing. Now that I have used SeaSek on one kayak, I can’t imagine going without it and highly recommend it to every kayak angler.”
     -Mike Kogan, Founder JaxKayakFishing.Com

Thank you Mike!

2007 Gheenoe LT15IMG_041320140504_123744

“When I first got the Gheenoe LT25 it was in all right condition but I’m not the type of guy that can leave anything looking or performing stock I always have to have a one off. So the first thing I did was sand the whole boat fix all the minor scratches and body work then put Rust-Oleum truck bed liner spray paint on the bottom and them put a 3D carbon fiber car wrap on the outside of the hull of the Gheenoe. Then on to the interior, painted the whole inside of it with Rust-Oleum Top-Side beige color. When that was finished I put shark lights in the front, ran all new wire, all new pumps for bilge and aerator plus new fuse and switch panel. Took it to BT’S Welding for a new polling platform, noise cone, rod holders, cup holders and got 2 Shallow Stix’s which are anchors. As for the stickers on the hull my friend Justin Kennedy put all reflective stickers on top of the 3D carbon fiber for my company as well for Seadek logo’s. FOR THE GRAND FINALE SEADEK IS PUTTING THE FLOOR TOGETHER FOR ME NOW MY VISON IS GOING TO BE COMPLETE.”

SeaDek Kayak Kit Review

Here’s a great article reviewing SeaDek Kayak Kits. This article was written by Spencer Jones for Kayak Angler – The Kayak Fishing Magazine.

"I was pleasantly surprised at how soft but strong the pads were."

GEAR REVIEW: SEADEK KAYAK PADDING

Outfit your kayak with padding to stand longer and fish harder.

Kayaks are quickly becoming more stable and companies are focusing on anglers being able to stand and fish.  But there is just one issue…my feet get tired!  There is a solution, SeaDek Marine Non-Skid Pads, a 5mm thick self-adhesive pad that easily attaches to the deck of your kayak.  With many color choices and ability to customize it is the perfect addition to your kayak so you can stay comfortable when standing and reeling in the big one.  Oh, did I mention that they are sound dampening!  It’s another way to stay in stealth mode when you are targeting your dream catch.

After putting in the order, my gray pre-cut SeaDek pads arrived within a day or two. I was pleasantly surprised at how soft but strong the pads were. I prepped my kayak by scrubbing and cleaning the places where it would attach.  When they were in place I peeled the film off about half way and carefully placed them on the yak.

SeaDek body 1

Gently putting pressure on the section already attached I finished taking off the film and attached the rest of the pad.  A quick press around the entire pad to make sure any air bubbles were out and BAM! I am ready to stand in comfort.  They also provided a few pads that attach where your rods and paddles might touch and make some noise.

After installing the SeaDek and many hours on the water the pads are amazing!  Even looking beyond the fact that my feet are rejoicing from the comfort, it is easy to clean.  Paddling through rivers, ponds, lakes, and getting sand, silt, pond scum, and who knows what, all you need to do spray it down with the hose to clean it.  If you have a tough spot just take a soft brush and scrub lightly, rinse, and it comes right out.

SeaDek body 2

From quick delivery, easy installation, awesome look, and of course the unbeatable comfort SeaDek is a great addition to make your kayak in the ultimate stand-up fishing machine! For more information about SeaDek, check out their website, seadek.com.

Five Brevard companies named 2014 ‘Companies to Watch’ finalists
EDC nominated companies part of statewide group of finalists

Brevard County, Fla. (July 22, 2014) – A solutions oriented marine deck manufacturer. An innovative after-market logistics services manufacturer. A next-generation magnet technologies company. An industry leading wakeboard tower manufacturer. A responsive firearms manufacturer.

These Brevard-based companies are being recognized for their advancements and growth; and, are among an elite group of statewide finalists that have been selected for GrowFL’s annual Florida Companies to Watch awards program. Selected from a pool of 150 second-stage growth companies, which combined represent $600 million in annual revenue and employ more than 2,800 full-time equivalent employees, the following local companies are one round away from being named to this prestigious list:

Developed by the Edward Lowe Foundation, Florida Companies to Watch is a distinctive awards program that is specifically designed to seek out second-stage businesses from a wide range of industries representing all areas of the state, not just those in major metropolitan areas. Second-stage companies are identified as somewhere between a startup and a large firm – yet poised for growth.

Eligible companies must employ between 6 and 99 employees and have between $750,000 and $50 million in annual revenue or working capital in place. Awardees are selected for demonstrating the intent and capacity to grow based on employee or sales growth, exceptional entrepreneurial leadership, sustainable competitive advantage, outstanding corporate culture, inspired community giving and other notable strengths.

The EDC has long been involved with the Florida Economic Gardening Institute/GrowFL program at the University of Central Florida, which presents Companies to Watch, and has served as nominator to several award finalists.

“We’ve seen countless examples of mid-size companies bringing the spotlight to Brevard’s manufacturing community,” said Lynda Weatherman, president and chief executive officer of the Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast. “Thank you to each of these companies for shining the light on the talent and growth that exists here and congratulations for being named to this elite group that is making a difference within our region, the state of Florida, and beyond.”

The Florida Companies to Watch program consists of two rounds of selections. Now that the finalists have been selected, these companies will advance to final judging, where they will be further evaluated based on their performance in the marketplace, innovative products, services or processes, philanthropy and empowered employees. The winners will be announced in late August and celebrated at a special event on October 23 in Orlando.
