Florida Sport Fishing – SeaDek Helm Station Pad

We made this custom helm station pad last month for Leah Genoun to give to her husband and owner of Florida Sportfishing Magazine, as a Valentine’s Day gift. I think it turned out great and so does Captain Mike. You can order your own SeaDek anti fatigue pad from our online store: http://www.seadek.com/c-11-helm-station-pads.aspx

Standing on your feet all day behind the helm gets tiring, especially in rough sea conditions. Thanks to my new customized SeaDek helm pad, those days are gone! SeaDek helm pads are easy to install, fully customizable and greatly reduce fatigue, sore feet and lower backaches. Plus, these high quality helm pads are completely weather resistant, stain resistant, and are extremely durable.
Capt. Mike Genoun, Florida Sport Fishing

New SeaDek Pads Installed on SC Carts

Just received these shots from SC Carts of their SeaDek pads installed on some new carts. I think they work really well and highlight the potential for our product in the auto motive industry. Floors, steps and dashes are just a few applications that come to mind.
Visit the SC Carts website: http://www.sccarts.ca/

SeaDek Stock & Custom Kayak Kits

I saw on one of the kayak forums today a debate about SeaDek kayak kits and the pricing for various kits and options. I don’t like to go on the forums in the middle of a thread because I think it ends up looking like I’m just trying to hock our products for free if we’re not a site sponsor so I thought I’d post this on our blog and social media sites and try to clear up any confusion.

SeaDek_kayak_pricing_001First off the kayak kits have been a huge success and we are trying to add as many new patterns as we can, as quickly as we can. The process of capturing templates, verifying fit and producing the kits takes a bit of time but we’re getting more efficient with each one that we do.

Secondly, we are a US manufacturer. These pads are not coming in on a ship from China by the thousands, we’re producing them here in our factory. Currently we are only “stocking” two color combinations; one color storm gray or army camo because those are what have been ordered the most by our customers. We produce them in quantity and have them on the shelf and ready to ship. That is the price you see on the webstore: http://www.seadek.com/c-97-kayak-non-skid-pads.aspx Pricing is based on sheet yield. EVA comes in a large sheet and the more parts we can cut from a single sheet the better the pricing. We try to nest parts for absolute best yield. Sometimes that means we can’t include certain parts of a kayak kit in the stock offering.

We can make a “custom” kit for any kayak. You can chose any single color or combination of any two colors that we offer. Here is our color guide: http://www.seadek.com/t-colors-landing.aspx We can cut logos and graphics into these pads with our CNC machines. Because these pads are custom, it costs more for us to make them and thus the price is higher than the stock kits.

If we do not have your particular year, make or model we can work with you to make a template and create a kit for your kayak. Just give us a call at 321-632-4466 or email customerservice@seadek.com

Custom Planet Nautique SeaDek Kit


I stopped by the Nautique www.nautique.com factory last week to get a few photos of the custom SeaDek non-skid kit being installed on the Planet Nautique boat. What an incredible ride! The purple metal flake is going to absolutely explode out in the sun. The custom SeaDek kit features a faux teak pattern, Planet Nautique logos logos throughout and a new etching technique developed just for this application. Keep an eye out for this boat in the weeks to come on www.planetnautique.com

Justin Allgaier SeaDek Pads

Just finished up these custom floor mats for NASCAR (http://www.nascar.com/) driver No. 51 Justin Allgaier. We’re really excited to be working with Justin on these one of a kind mats to be used at the races outside his trailer and in the display/work areas. These pads are made from 10mm storm gray with 3mm black on top and race red inlaid logos. We also added some textured features with a new process we’ve invented. Note the etched wave patter. We’ll post some follow up photos of the pads in use real soon.

Special thanks to Robby Maschhaupt for helping to put this project together.

Hog Wild For SeaDek

Last year we SeaDeked a Proline 2950 for our buddies over at Spearing Magazine (http://www.spearingmagazine.com). The boat turned out great and they’ve been getting a lot of use out of their pads. They nabbed a hogfish this weekend that was a perfect match for the custom hog we routed into the cockpit hatch cover. Thanks for the photo Jeromy!

Get Some Salt On Your SeaDek – From Florida Sportsman

When I’m out on the kayak for several hours in a day, or trying to be as quiet as possible when casting to a shallow water redfish, I try to look for ways that will either give me an advantage on getting a bite or at least making it a bit more comfortable when confined to my plastic watercraft for hours on end.


This article has been reposted from: http://www.floridasportsman.com/2014/02/27/get-salt-seadek/
by Mark Naumovitz • February 27, 2014

I had known about SeaDek for a while, seeing the padding they make for boats and also for coolers, to give additional comfort when skipping on the water in a boat or adding more traction on otherwise slippery wet decks, but when I saw they were coming available for kayaks, my feet started singing another tune. My kayak fishing technique is evolving into more standing and sight fishing, waiting for that shot at a trout sitting in the pothole or a spooky redfish just ahead of my kayak; even if it sacrifices more bites, the thrill of sight fishing one is bar none. I fish out of a Hobie Revo 13, which is not usually meant for a standing/sight fishing type of kayak to my knowledge, but fits my frame just right. The time I spend standing is usually on a hard plastic hatch that has protruding hinges with not a ton of surface area so I needed a type of padding that would be long lasting, durable, cost efficient, and good looking.

After getting on the SeaDek website, I read where they could send you template material so you could trace out your specific kayak and have a custom kit made for your rig! Within a few days the kit was at my door and it was time to start the measuring/template process. After this was completed, I mailed the template back in to SeaDek and waited for them to do their magic – after a few weeks my brand new kit was ready to go. Installation was a breeze: clean surface, peel the backing off the Seadek, and stick. Once on and cured, it’s not coming off.

After having used it on the kayak for several weeks now, it has stood the test against blood, heat, and abuse. I now have a sound deadening layer of protection that quiets any clangy anchors on my surface, as well as tackle boxes being thrown around, camera equipment, and the like. My feet have felt much better after several hours of standing and casting, decreasing my chances of slipping on the wet surfaces.

On a most decent trip, fishing Flamingo last weekend for the first time at the 2nd Adventure Fishing World Championship, certainly tested the ninja skills of being quiet in skinny water. Most of the water we covered along the 20 mile trek was two feet or less, and getting closer to a fish meant more chances of it picking up on our vibrations and/or sounds that we might make when getting ready to make a presentation. Having an additional layer of sound deadening material really helps in situations like this, whether it be under you in your “cockpit”, behind you under your gear, or around your deck to soften the blow of paddles or push-poles being moved around. Also, if you have ever paddled a kayak miles on end, you know how rough it can be on your “bottom”, and getting up to stretch can be a welcoming practice to reviving your paddling/peddling efforts. Again, since most of the water was skinny, poling or paddling was the majority of the propulsion, in which the layer of SeaDek was comforting to be able to get up on vs a hot and hard plastic surface.

The material is a UV protected non-absorbent foam and has a textured micro-dot surface. The price for a custom kit goes around $110-$150, depending on your kayak. Many colors are available to choose from and you can even get custom name printing in the material as well.
