Florida Senate Passes Senate Bill 10

This week was an epic milestone in the fight for legislation to begin the process of restoring the Florida Everglades and the rest of Florida’s waterways. On Tuesday, May 2, the Florida Senate and House of Representatives passed Senate Bill 10, which paved the way for a much-needed reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee to help curb freshwater discharges into the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee Rivers, as well as sending much-needed freshwater south through the Everglades and into Florida Bay.

This victory was thanks to extensive efforts by groups such as Captains for Clean Water, and by fishing guides, anglers, homeowners and business owners from around the country who spoke out in support of saving these fragile ecosystems.

SeaDek has joined Captains for Clean Water in the fight, recently making the trip to the Florida State Capitol in Tallahassee to urge lawmakers to pass the bill. With this great success, we can celebrate, but will remain vigilant and active to continue pushing for action that will help restore Florida’s waterways to their former state.

SeaDek Brings Weathered Platforms Back to Life

Sometimes as a boat ages, it loses its original luster before the time actually comes to replace it. In situations like these, SeaDek can be the perfect solution to breathe new life into an aging boat with minimal cost and effort.

Contemporary Marine Flooring, a SeaDek Certified Fabricator based in Spokane, Washington, just sent over these photos of a makeover he did on an older MasterCraft swim platform. The platform was heavily oxidized and scarred with osmotic blisters, but after a heavy buff from Scott’s team and a custom cut SeaDek pad, this platform looked like it was fresh off the showroom floor.

Where the Buffalo Roam

We get lots of great photos from happy customers using their SeaDek, but these photos from Sam in Jackson, Wyoming, are a first for us!

Sam said:

To SeaDek friends,

I am sure you have a bunch of really cool pictures of sharks and huge fish next to your SeaDek, but figured I would send you one from my neck of the woods.  Just finished my first rafting trip with my custom made whitewater rafting decking covered in SeaDek.  The foam was awesome, received a bunch of compliments and was unscathed even through a violent flip and subsequent pounding on a high water Cataract Canyon mishap.  It was a joy to walk around the boat surefooted for once!  Got home a couple of days ago and am cleaning up everything from the trip in the rain/snow up here in Jackson, WY.  Went outside to do a final pressure wash and cleanup on the cooler/frame and these two guys liked it so much that they had other plans.  If only my dogs were as well behaved around them as they are around my gear.  Hope you enjoy and feel free to share!

 Photo without Bison is of the boat once finished.

 Best,

 Sam

Thanks for sending Sam, these were a real hit at SeaDek headquarters!

SeaDek Provides Innovative Decking Products to SoftBank Team Japan’s Challenge for the America’s Cup

04-17_SoftBankTeamJapan_FINAL

Rockledge, FL, April 28, 2017—SeaDek Marine Products, the industry-leading manufacturer of EVA non-skid products, has been named a contributor of SoftBank Team Japan in their campaign for the 35th America’s Cup. Their innovative decking surfaces will be utilized on the team’s America’s Cup Class Yacht, a nearly 50 foot foiling catamaran, as well as other applications to provide exceptional traction for the crew and support staff.

After a 15-year hiatus, Japan’s return to America’s Cup sailing marks a new chapter for the team. Led by skipper and CEO Dean Barker, the team has established a base at the Royal Naval Dockyard in Bermuda in 2015 in preparation for the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger series starting on May 26, 2017.

SeaDek’s products are an invaluable addition to the fleet thanks to advanced non-skid characteristics that enable the sailors to safely maintain contact with the boat in the extreme conditions that define America’s Cup sailing.

“We are thrilled to be contributing to SoftBank Team Japan in their bid for the America’s Cup,” said Jason Gardner, vice president of marketing and advertising at SeaDek. “With so much advanced technology going into the design and construction of these boats, we are honored to stand alongside the best in the industry to support the team.”

Now or Neverglades Sport Fishing Day: Video Recap

On April 11, 2017, SeaDek joined Captains for Clean Water and other leading companies such as Hells Bay Boatworks, Costa, Patagonia, Simms, and Florida Sportsman Magazine in Tallahassee to make their collective voices heard in support of legislation to restore the Florida Everglades. Advocating for Senate Bill 10 to fund a reservoir South of Lake Okeechobee, the day featured a press conference with Florida media channels, visits to the Capitol to meet with lawmakers, and an evening of fun at the Edison restaurant with food, drinks, and live music by GatorNate. Thank you to everyone who made the trip, with the future of Florida’s waterways on the line, it is our actions that will change the tide!

SeaDek® for Cabin Floors

While SeaDek  is best known for outside applications like cockpits and swim platforms, many boaters don’t realize that it performs just as well inside the boat. Carpet gets wet and dirty, and traditional teak can be slick and dangerous, making SeaDek the perfect solution below decks.

In addition to its exceptional nonskid properties and comfort underfoot, SeaDek requires none of the maintenance associated with other flooring materials, and protects belongings from damage in rolling seas.

JetBoat Pilot, a SeaDek Certified Fabricator based in Panama City, Florida, recently sent over these photos of a SeaDek installation in the cabin of a 2007 Ranger 25 tugboat. Mocha over Camel faux teak did the trick for this tug; nice job guys!
