New SeaDek Factory Demo Day

The demolition phase of the new SeaDek factory renovation is well under way. Carpets have been ripped out, wallpaper removed, factory lighting upgraded, electrical upgrades under way as well. Still quite a way to go but good progress so far. We’re all looking forward to the move.

Prototype SeaDek Kit for an Old Town Predator 13

Before you call in your order just know that this kit is not for sale right now. Because of the unique deck design we need to do some thorough testing before we make it available. That said, I’d like to thank Zack Rece for being our test pilot on this project. When he first emailed me asking if we could make a kit for the Predator I was a little apprehensive. The deck has lots of raised areas creating channels for water to run out of and keeping your feet on a dryer surface. This creates a bit of a challenge for adhering anything down because water will flow under the pad. We’ll see how it goes.

The kit installed very easily and really looked nice. Just the single color really set off the kayak. The pads will provide a much more comfortable surface to stand on, especially when barefoot. If the kit proves itself over the next several weeks we’ll consider adding it to our catalog. We’ll post results here on our website and social media site either way.

We are adding new kayak kits to the store every week. Look for yours here: http://www.seadek.com/c-97-kayak-non-skid-pads.aspx . If you don’t see yours please contacts us and let us help you make a template for your kayak and create a custom kit. Choose from one color or two color combinations and even add logos and graphics!

Boot Düsseldorf 2014

We’ve just returned from a great week at Boot Düsseldorf (http://www.boat-duesseldorf.com/)and wanted to share some photos from the show. There was a lot of SeaDek on display from boat builders worldwide. As Europe’s central marketplace for yachts and water sports products, boot Düsseldorf is the most influential platform for international debuts in this particular industry.

We’d like to say a special Dankeschön to our friends at AktivBoot (http://www.aktivboot.de/), your source for SeaDek and Nautique Boats in Germany. Their hospitality really made the trip for us.

Installing SeaDek on a Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 2014

In this video we demonstrate how to install a SeaDek non-skid kit on a Native Watercraft Slayer 13 Propel.

Durable and shock absorbent, SeaDek kayak pads provide not only an exceptional traction surface but also lessens the fatigue brought on by prolonged standing on bare kayak surfaces. An added benefit is SeaDek’s noise reducing qualities. Add in the customizable color and graphic options and you have the perfect addition to your new or used watercraft.

SeaDek is manufactured in the United States from nonabsorbent, closed cell EVA material specifically formulated for marine applications. SeaDek’s marine grade 3M™ pressure sensitive adhesive backing makes application a breeze. Just peel and stick. It’s that easy!

If you don’t see your make or model on our webstore http://www.seadek.com/c-97-kayak-non-skid-pads.aspx don’t worry, we can help you make a template of your kayak deck and design a new traction kit to your specifications. Just order a template kit from our store: http://www.seadek.com/c-9-template-kits.aspx
