SeaDek becomes MRAA Platinum Partner

MINNEAPOLIS, February 28, 2017 — SeaDek Marine Products, a manufacturer of non-skid, closed-cell EVA traction products, has joined the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas as a Platinum Partner — the MRAA’s highest level of corporate partnership.

SeaDek, which recently also sponsored and contributed to the success of MRAA’s 2017 Compensation Study, has demonstrated a deep commitment to supporting the marine dealer body with this membership with the MRAA as well as its participation in last month’s Marine Dealer Conference & Expo.

“We realize that the dealers are the direct connection between builders and their customers,” says Jason Gardner, VP of Marketing for SeaDek Marine Products. “By supporting the dealers we understand that we are better serving our customers and doing our part to help the OEMs grow their business. We are all in this together.”

SeaDek says its product can be tailored to fit a wide variety of applications on just about any type of boat, including additional applications such as swim platforms, cockpit pads, step kits, footwells, gunnels and trailers.

“We know that the SeaDek team has long enjoyed excellent relationships with its boat builder partners,” explains Matt Gruhn, President of MRAA. “We’re thrilled to see that they’re continuing to expand their reach to nurture those same types of relationships with the dealers who are servicing boats and customers on a daily basis. It’s an honor to welcome them onboard. ”

SeaDek Marine Products joins a continually growing roster of boat manufacturers, vendors and suppliers that have chosen to support the dealer community through partnership with the MRAA. Find a full menu of partner benefits here.

SeaDek on an Azimut 46 in Seattle

There isn’t a boat on the water that doesn’t deserve SeaDek. Big and small, old and new, the applications for SeaDek’s unique marine flooring that perfectly blends comfort, safety, and style are virtually endless.

We just received these photos of a great custom SeaDek install on a Azimut 46 from Scott Kurtz of Contemporary Marine Flooring, a SeaDek Certified Fabricator based out of Spokane, Washinngton. Azimut Yachts are famous for their innovative and luxurious yacht designs, and the owner of this Azimunt was looking for an “elegant and classy” deck design, which was no problem for Scott.

The team at Contemporary Marine Flooring added a subtle and tasteful Azimut logo on the platform, a compass rose on the bridge deck, and unique reveals between the bow-to-stern pads to add a bit of flare and personality. Great job guys!

SURFACE TENSION: Salinity

To most anglers, it should come as no surprise that Florida’s waterways are in a dire situation, facing unprecedented threats from run-off, pollution, and years of mismanagement.

Many of Florida’s prized fisheries teeter on the brink of collapse, caught in a perilous state of uncertainty, with their fates waiting to be determined by a bureaucratic battle over land use, resources, and conservation.


Our friend Jason Arnold recently directed this final installment of Surface Tension, in which AFTCO Pro Captain Alonzo Sotillo showcases the prestigious tarpon fishery on Florida’s shallow flats.


With its breathtaking cinematography and unique ecological focus, this video does an extraordinary job of illuminating the precious natural resources that Florida has been blessed with, as well as the many reasons why we need to act to protect them.

SeaDek at Boot Düsseldorf 2017

IMG_0365

From January 21st through 29th, more than 1,800 exhibitors from 70 different countries presented their products and services to a diverse, international crowd at Boot 2017, and Activboot, a longtime SeaDek business partner, was on hand in booth C21 in Hall 9, to educate boaters of the many benefits of SeaDek, and its advantages over carpet and traditional non-skids.

It’s location, the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia sits along the busiest waterway in the world, the Rhine River. A total of 242,000 visitors from 70 countries came to Düsseldorf, and exhibitors had close to 1,800 boats and yachts on display.

Boot Düsseldorf is popular for its coverage of a wide variety of water sports, including: sailing, motor boating, diving, angling, marine tourism, trend sports, and canoeing. For surfers, there was the world’s first standing, deep-water wave (aptly called “The Wave”) that allowed participants to test their surfing skills on standard boards and SUPs. Up to six surfers could ride at once, and beginners (as young as six years of age) could use a bar for support. It’s nine-pump system creates a realistic ocean current, allowing users to ride on standard boards with fins. There was also a center for diving, where you could hop in the 5.9′ deep pool and diving instructors from the world’s top diving organizations would provide training tips and advice.

Among the various displays, SeaDek was on the decks of countless 2017 model vessels, including many of the world’s leading boat builders. And to support the aftermarket, Activboot touted their custom SeaDek capabilities, including full service design and installation. To learn more about Aktivboot, visit www.seadek.de.

A Custom Install at the Lake Meade Marina

20170128_100508_headerimageSC Wake installs SeaDek on a 2008 Sea Ray 330 SunDancer

January 28th was another beautiful day in Lake Meade, Nevada. At the time, the weather was comfortable and cool, in the 70’s, and the water level was up 10 feet. They are hoping it will go up 20″ more after all the snow melts up North. Surrounding the lake were cacti- still green thanks to the recent rains, native wildlife- including a flock of ducks, and inside it was chock-full of Striper fish.

20170128_102804 copy
This particular install, done by SeaDek Certified Fabricator – SC Wake’s Eric Sacksteder, replaced sandy-colored snap-in carpet with a classic brushed mocha over black teak SeaDek. The new install will provide a durable, non-slip surface that is easy to clean while still easy on your feet, but still adds to the overall aesthetic appeal of the vessel.

A Treat for Your Feet: Dual Density SeaDek

As every boater knows, a full day on the water can wreak havoc on your feet, knees, and back. Pounding chop and long hours at the helm can take the fun right out of a boating day, leaving you sore and tired.

But SeaDek has introduced an innovative new material that is sure to take the strain off tired captains: Dual Density SeaDek. This new option from SeaDek is perfect for helm station pads, combing bolsters, leaning posts, or anywhere else that additional cushion is needed or desired.

Featuring a soft, 17mm low-density bottom layer for maximum shock-absorption, and a 3mm standard density to layer for traction and durability, Dual Density SeaDek provides supreme comfort with the same great non-skid properties that SeaDek is famous for.
