For the second year in a row SeaDek Marine Products has hosted the Melbourne High School Business Academy at our Rockledge, FL based production plant. Sophomores were given a look inside the workings of an international manufacturing facility with a factory tour, presentations by employees and owners and opportunities to ask questions and even give new product suggestions. The SeaDek Nautique 230 provided a good prop to demonstrate a real-world application for our custom SeaDek non-skid products.
COO, Serenity Gardner, explains many of the new procedures and systems that she has help to implement over the past few years. She also stressed the importance of continued education and innovation.
Lead CAD designer, Mike Wood, with a future industry leader.
CoOwner, Jason Gardner, giving a tour of the factory floor and discussing the changes implemented since our recent ISO certification process.
We were all impressed by the student attention, interest and questions. Teacher, Erik Perna, runs a tight ship and obviously cares a great deal about these kids and their future. We’re lucky to have leaders like him in our community. These student are the people who are going to be driving our county forward into the 21st century and I think we’re in pretty good hands. Looking forward to next year’s visit!
We are selling our current manufacturing facility in Rocklegde, FL. We will be moving into a new facility in January. If you know anyone in the Central Florida area who might be interested please pass this listing along.

SeaDek Marine has made a huge splash into the wakeboard boat market throughout the last two years. From swim deck pads to full carpet replacement they do it all. I am not sure there is much in a new Nautique G21 that does not have the SeaDek foam on it. They have been able to take the industry by storm by providing a very durable yet desirable product. Long gone are the days of replacing your swim platform pad. The precise size of the closed cell EVA panels insure the best fit every time.
We had the opportunity this season to provide the crew at SeaDek Marine with the best products to get the most amazing wakesurf wave behind their 2013 Super Air Nautique 230. Our goal was to provide them with a solution that was easy to install but also easy to control. We didn’t want them to use a throw over the side ballast pump and were able to send a fully compatible ballast upgrade that is controlled using the factory switches at the dash.
We have found that the best option for the newer 230 is to remove the factory hard tanks in the rear compartment and replace them with the 1100lb. Fly High Jumbo Surf Sacs. By removing the hard tank instead of piggy backing on top of it the bag is allowed to reach it’s maximum capacity while ensuring that the fill and drain times are the fastest possible. It takes quite a bit of water pressure to fill and drain water through a hard tank and into a ballast bag. The wonderful thing about this project is that the Nautique PiggyBack Rear Factory Ballast Upgrade (2006-2013) will work in both scenarios. By installing our upgrade the SeaDek 230 has more capacity in the rear lockers than what comes in the updated 2014 model with the extra Pro Surf Ballast package.
Adding ballast to the rear corners of the boat will create an awesome big steep wave but the guys at SeaDek wanted the pocket to lengthen out as well. The newer generation SAN 230′s have an amazing amount of space underneath the front bow cushions and we have a sac that will optimize every nook and cranny. If you are going to add weight in the stern you must add weight to the bow. By adding the Nautique Piggyback Front Factory Ballast Upgrade (2006-2013) with the Fly High Integrated Bow Sac the system could be easily controlled from the dash just like the rear bags.
This will take that big steep wave and make it a lot more ridable for everyone. By pushing the deepest part of the V hull further into the water the draft behind the boat becomes more compact and provides a mellower surf wave shape. Not only is the face both less steep and cleaner but the pocket also extends out further away from the swim deck. As you can see from the video above the rider can achieve unbelievable distances away from the boat and reel it all the way back in.

The new SeaDek kayak non-skid kits have been a huge hit and we are adding more patterns as quickly as we can. One question we’ve been getting a lot is how to template a kayak yourself. We will be putting together an instructional video very soon but here are a few photos from recent templating jobs.
The most important thing is getting the template material nice and flat on the surface to be templated. This requires a good deal of trimming with scissors or a razor. Once flat, tape the mylar material securely to the deck and trace the area where you would like a pad with a sharpie marker. Note bow, stern, port and starboard orientation, number the parts and write your contact info one the template. Send it back to us and we’ll get started on your custom pad!
Be sure to check our store first to make sure we don’t already have your pattern: http://www.seadek.com/c-97-kayak-non-skid-pads.aspx

We are always working on something new around the SeaDek factory. While we’ve done quite a few projects in the automotive industry, we haven’t done a lot in the motorcycle segment. This show-floor display mat is for MX and off-road motorcycles fitted with parts from Pro-Wheel racing Components (http://www.prowheelracing.com/).

Just received this photo from Events/National Promo Team Manager, Henry Cecil. SeaDek manufactures the faux teak non-skid pads seen on all Nautique boats (http://nautique.com/). We also create custom event, dealer and team rider pads throughout the year for advertising and promotions.
George Poveromo (http://georgepoveromo.com/) is a world-renowned angling authority, National Seminar host, television host, and Editor-At-Large for Salt Water Sportsman Magazine. We’ve been working with him for years providing custom pads for his Makos. Here are two of the latest custom anti-fatigue pads just coming off the CNC machines. You’ll be able to see them both in person at the 2014 Miami International Boat Show (http://www.miamiboatshow.com/).

These photos of two fully customized Hobie Pro Angler kits came to us from our friend Steve up in Georgia. An avid kayak fisherman, Steve was good enough to work through some initial hiccups on our end in the beginning of this project and we appreciate that. In the end these kits turned out pretty spectacularly.
We can make non-skid pads for just about any kind of kayak. First check on our online store to make sure it isn’t already in the catalog: http://www.seadek.com/c-97-kayak-non-skid-pads.aspx
If it’s not on the list you can simply order a template kit and we’ll work with you to get a custom pad made: http://www.seadek.com/c-9-template-kits.aspx
