What is the best way to clean SeaDek?

So you just got back from an epic day on the water and everyone was in love with your new SeaDek kit, but now it’s time to clean up and all the fun of the day has left a serious mess on deck. So now you are wondering, what is the best way to clean my new SeaDek kit?

Because of its closed-cell composition, SeaDek is non-absorbent and naturally stain-resistant, so dirt and grime stay on the surface, making cleanup much easier than other flooring materials like carpet.

Cleaning SeaDek with Dek Magic

For easy removal of most common stains and spills, as well as general cleaning, reach for Dek Magic, a cleaner specifically formulated for cleaning PE/EVA foam decking. Just apply Dek Magic to the areas to be cleaned, work it in with a medium bristled boat brush, let it sit for 3-5 minutes, and rinse! Dek Magic is great for removing really tough stains from things like oil, blood, and wine, and is also safe for most other boat surfaces, including vinyl and PVC.

SeaDek Dek Magic

If Dek Magic isn’t available, SeaDek can also be cleaned with a variety of household cleaners.

To clean dirt, footprints, etc. from your SeaDek, use an all-purpose cleaner, degreaser, or dish soap along with warm water and a medium bristled brush. Thoroughly work the soapy mixture into the SeaDek until dirt, etc. comes up. Rinse with clean water and repeat if necessary.

For stubborn stains that persist, mix a bleach solution with one cup of bleach per gallon of water. Using a soft-bristled brush, scrub in a circular motion until the stain comes out. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and repeat if necessary.

Cleaning SeaDek with Dek Magic

Sometimes anchor rode or non-stainless hardware can leave unsightly rust stains. For this, we recommend a cap full of vinegar or oxalic acid. Apply to the rust stain and allow to soak for 3-5 minutes. If necessary, use latex/nitrile gloves to massage the cleaner into the texture of the SeaDek pad. Rinse with water and repeat if necessary. When applying oxalic acid, use care to avoid getting acid on the edges of the pad, as it could damage the lamination or PSA.

Finally, one of the easiest ways to clean your SeaDek after a day on the water is with the help of a light-duty, low PSI pressure washer (similar to the type used in a car wash). Using a wide-angle tip and care to keep a suitable distance from the material to avoid damage, watch the evidence of a fishing trip quickly disappear. Please note that while pressure washing is a great way to keep your SeaDek looking new, caution must be used to avoid any damage.

While SeaDek is easy to clean, make the job even easier by tending to any stains, spills, or leaks as soon as possible!

SeaDek on a VX One Design: Space Cadet

From the high tech sailing yachts of the America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Race to coastal cruisers and racing dingies, SeaDek has a long history of helping sailors stay surefooted, whether racing for a cup or just making a passage.

SeaDek Certified Fabricator Performance Sail Tools is a fixture in the Northeast sailing community, providing unique custom SeaDek kits for all types of boats in the region. With competitive sailing in their blood, they always seem to have a cool project in the works, but this recent VX One really takes the cake when it comes to shear creativity.

The 2014 Ovington-built VX One came from Streamline Marine, the OEM VX One importer in Portsmouth, RI. The boat was recently acquired by a new owner, and once the new name was established (Space Cadet), the team at Performance Sail Tools received full creative license to design a custom SeaDek kit to compliment the space-themed racer.

The deck is primarily 5mm Dark Gray and 5mm White, but what sets it apart is the 209 separate pieces in 19 different colors! It’s safe to say that there isn’t another VX One like this on Planet Earth!

Navy Blue SeaDek!

After releasing eight fresh new colors this season, we have been impatiently waiting to see photos of our customers getting creative with the new shades. With earth-inspired hues including Saddle, Birch, Dune, Expresso, Charcoal, Moonrock, Teal, and Navy, it is easier than ever to make your boat as unique as you are.

Navy Blue has always been synonymous with life on the water, steeped in maritime tradition and rich with boating culture. It’s just as natural on a schooner as it is a skiff, continually reminiscent of memories made on your favorite waterway.

The owner of this 2006 SeaRay Sundancer 320 fell in love with 9mm Terra over White over Navy Blue.

Featuring a standard 6mm two color lamination, this 1999 Carver 356 Aft Cabin used Mica over Navy to breath new life into the swim platform and steps.

Recap: Bassmaster Classic 2021

Our first Bassmaster Classic was one for the books, and we have to say, all the hype we heard leading up to this legendary event was true! Taking place in Fort Worth, Texas, the 2021 Classic drew nearly 150,000 attendees over three days, with tournament fishing on Lake Ray Roberts and the expo/weigh-in at the Will Rogers Memorial Center.

With legions of bass fishermen welcoming the return of the live event, fans young and old braved the Texas heat to see the latest fishing gear, meet their favorite pros, and enjoy all the fun activities that the Classic had to offer.

Joining our partners and friends in the Xpress Boats booth, the action at the SeaDek counter was non-stop as we educated folks on the many advantages of SeaDek over traditional marine carpet. While Xpress was an early adopter of SeaDek in the bass fishing world, more and more fishermen are finding ways to outfit their bass boats with the next generation of bass boat flooring. For many, gone are the days of wet, moldy carpet that is hard to clean and has to be replaced every few years. As a non-absorbent closed-cell foam material, SeaDek doesn’t absorb water, provides excellent non-skid, and is a breeze to keep clean. The advantages are clear.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by the booth to say hello; we enjoyed meeting and speaking to every one of you! Until next year, keep bassin’ and we’ll see you on Lake Hartwell in 2022!
