Guiding Flow Episode 4 Airs Tomorrow

SeaDek Benny Blanco Guiding Flow

In his quest to explore the unique water quality issues facing waterways on all of Florida’s coasts, Captain Benny Blanco’s newest episode of Guiding Flow brings him again to SeaDek’s backyard—the Indian River Lagoon.

Plagued by years of unchecked runoff, as well as massive home development and population increase on both sides of the lagoon, its once lush seagrass beds have all but disappeared. But with a new focus on the issues that have caused the mess and a grassroots movement of people dedicated to restoring the world-class fishery, we are now in a position to enact positive change to preserve the fragile ecosystem for generations to come.

SeaDek HD for FWC Blue Crab Research

Did you know that a parasite called dinoflagellate Hematodinium sp. causes one of the most common diseases in Florida blue crabs, known as “bitter crab”?

We didn’t either until we got talking to the FWC blue crab research team tasked with learning more about the health of Florida’s blue crabs!

It turns out that this parasite has significant effects on blue crabs during stressful environmental events, such as high salinity and high temperature. To understand and manage the fishery properly, it is critical to understand the prevalence and role this disease has on natural mortality and fishery dynamics.

Part of the FWC’s research involves catching blue crabs to study, and anyone that has ever done any crabbing knows that it is a messy business, with fouled-up crab traps inflicting some pretty heavy abuse on boat decks.

To remedy the situation for the researchers, we made a custom SeaDek kit for their research vessel utilizing SeaDek HD, a new material with a rugged outer skin that is perfect for commercial applications and hard-wearing areas.

SeaDek HD features a tetrapod texture for great traction and our standard 3M pressure sensitive adhesive for easy peel-and-stick application. Currently, it is available in 5mm single color Storm Gray and Black, or as an 8mm (5mm over 3mm) laminate with any of our standard available colors on the bottom. The FWC’s research boat features 8mm Storm Gray over Bimini Blue.

SeaDek Adds Professional Freshwater Angler Bill Lowen as Brand Ambassador

Partnership underscores SeaDek’s expansion in the bass boat market

Rockledge, Fla., May 11, 2020 – SeaDek Marine Products, the leading manufacturer of non-skid traction products for the marine environment, is proud to welcome angler Bill Lowen, a ten-time Bassmaster Classic Qualifier, to their Brand Ambassador program.

Based in Brookville, Indiana, Lowen’s 13 years competing in the Bassmaster Elite Series have earned him 10 Bassmaster Classic berths and 148 Top 10 finishes.

“SeaDek has changed the face of boating, and now, most importantly to me, improved one of the weakest links in the competitive bass boat by replacing carpet,” said Lowen. “I demand the finest in performance and quality so I can perform at the highest level, and with SeaDek, I have a unique advantage over my competition.”

Born from Lowen’s longstanding relationship with aluminum bass boat manufacturer Xpress Boats, who was an early adopter of SeaDek’s innovative flooring products, the new partnership will foster even more synergy between the freshwater fishing community, boat builders, and the SeaDek brand.

“This is an exciting time for SeaDek,” said Jason Gardner, Vice President of Marketing and Advertising at SeaDek. “The demand for an alternative to carpet has been longstanding in the freshwater market, and by collaborating with progressive partners such as Xpress, we feel that this is the beginning of a major turning point for bass boats. We are grateful to have an angler of Bill’s stature behind us and are thrilled to welcome him to the SeaDek family.”

DIY SeaDek for Jon Boats

While working with a SeaDek Certified Installer or through the SeaDek factory yields beautiful custom cut pads with superior fit and finish, sometimes using our DIY Sheet Material can produce great results at a fraction of the price.

Jon boats are an excellent example. Most have slick painted interiors that get scorching hot in the sun, and as they are often used for hunting, fishing, and working, don’t need a premium appearance.

Available on the SeaDek Webstore in a variety of colors, textures, and patterns, SeaDek DIY sheets are easy to cut-to-fit and provide eye-catching results that are both functional and economical.
