Intricate DIY Snow Camo Install

While we know that every boat deserves SeaDek, some projects just don’t require the finish achieved through custom fabrication. For many boaters, SeaDek Sheet Material allows them to enjoy all the traction and comfort of custom SeaDek at a significantly reduced cost. Available in a variety of colors, sizes, and textures, there is a DIY SeaDek sheet product for every boat and every application, from an entire deck to a few steps.

Dan in Wisconsin has been hard at work rebuilding a 1980 Smoker Craft, and chose our DIY Snow Camo Sheets as the perfect material for finishing his seats and hatches. Talk about attention to detail—nice work, Dan!

Hi Folks at SeaDek,

I wanted to share the following pictures from a rebuild of a 1980 Smoker Craft that I’ve been doing. We found SeaDek through Bass Pro Shops and decided to order direct. It came out looking great, and was very easy to work with in the custom cutting we had to do. I’m very pleased and will recommend it to anyone looking to do something similar.

Florida Skiff Challenge Kicks Off Today

Seadek Florida Skiff Challenge

After the unfortunate cancellation last year, we have been counting down the days until the 2021 Florida Skiff Challenge, a grueling race to spread awareness about Florida’s water crisis

Taking place from April 8th to 11th, The Florida Skiff Challenge brings boat manufacturers together in a competitive format to show off their maritime acumen and—most importantly—shine light on Florida’s water crisis.

And with everything going on with Florida’s water right now—from the ongoing battle to restore America’s Everglades to the devastating situation unfolding at Piney Point in Tampa Bay—there couldn’t be a more important time than now to shine that light as bright as possible.

SeaDek Florida Skiff Challenge

The Teams

Each team consists of two courageous (and a little insane) captains that will navigate around Florida non-stop in an 18-foot skiff while a pit crew trails their path on land with gas, gear and provisions.

This year, five teams will be competing: Yellowfin, Hell’s Bay, Sea Pro, Key West and Angler Pro.

The Challenge starts at 10 am this Thursday, 4/8. You can track each team’s progress in real-time on the Skiff Challenge site!

Another SeaDek Carpet Replacement

We have been receiving A TON of great photos from our customers recently, with many of them documenting the replacement of old, nasty marine carpet with Genuine SeaDek kits! SeaDek is the ultimate carpet alternative, being non-absorbent, easy to clean, comfortable underfoot, and fully customizable to your boat!

Steve in Florida recently worked with our Customer Advocate Team to design a custom kit to replace the ailing carpet in his 2004 Moomba Outback, and shared some photos of the replacement process. What a difference! Great work Steve; now it’s time to hit the lake!

Hello Traci,

Here are some before and after pics. I couldn’t be any more pleased with the outcome. Thank you so much for all your help with this project.

Bill Lowen Wins Bassmaster Elite Series at Pickwick

Bill Lowen Bassmaster Win SeaDek

Congratulations to SeaDek Pro-Angler Bill Lowen for his huge Bassmaster win on Pickwick Lake! From the SeaDek family to yours, we are so happy for you Bill, and excited to see all your years of hard work come to fruition!

Bill Lowen Bassmaster Win SeaDek

From B.A.S.S.:

FLORENCE, Ala., March 23, 2021 — Bill Lowen turned in an impressively consistent performance at the Guaranteed Rate Bassmaster Elite at Pickwick Lake, but he’ll never forget the 8-pound, 5-ounce largemouth that buoyed his Championship Tuesday performance and delivered a winning total of 83-5.

The only competitor to break 20 pounds three of the four days, Lowen placed third on Day 1 with 21-3 and improved to second a day later by adding 23-13. He earned his final-round berth on Day 3 with a limit of 17-10 that put him in a first-place tie with Chad Pipkens.

On Tuesday, Lowen surged across the finish line with a limit of 20-11. Edging second-place Brock Mosley by 2-10, Lowen claimed his first Elite win and earned $102,000, which includes the daily and overall Phoenix Boats Big Bass awards.

Lowen’s game-changing kicker bit around 10:30 a.m., when he skipped his black and blue Signature Series 3/8-ounce Lure Parts Online jig with a chunk trailer under a dock near Kogers Island. He initially snagged a piece of submerged cover, but then his line tightened.

Bill Lowen Bassmaster Win SeaDek

“I had to pitch way up in there so the bait could get down in the current and sweep it through,” Lowen said. “I felt my jig get into a limb or a piece of brush, and as I hopped the jig over I felt the bite.

“I hesitated because I wanted to be sure, but when I got big pressure, I set the hook and it was game on.”

Lowen described that emotional catch: “There were so many feelings going through my head. You could hear me screaming and hollering and that’s not me. But that’s 14 years of excitement built up for this day. It all came out.”

The Tennessee Valley Authority steadily worked the volume through the system. But with Wilson Dam dumping approximately 180,000 cubic feet per second into Pickwick, the rising water and intense current dramatically changed Lowen’s game plan.

“My main goal was to start the tournament out on the grass flat by Koger Island. When all this rain and current came through I (was concerned) because I didn’t have anything else.

“The first morning of the event I ran down there and saw what was going on, and I said, ‘These fish have to slide to the sides — whether it’s on the island where I was fishing or the docks on the other side.’ Fortunately, when I pulled up and started flipping trees I got a bite, which keyed me in.”

That pattern worked for three days, but in the final round, falling water had drained much of Lowen’s prime habitat.

“Today, my main area (shallow cover on the outskirts of Kogers) was a foot and a half low,” he said. “A lot of the wood I was catching fish on was dry, so I started running some deeper stuff. I switched from the 3/8-ounce jig to a 1/2 and caught a couple key fish.”

Earlier in the tournament, Lowen used the 3/8-ounce jig so he could float it through the shallow, current-swept cover without getting hung up. He also used a Strike King Rodent Texas-rigged on a 5/0 Hayabusa flipping hook with a 5/16-ounce Reins tungsten weight for flipping reeds.

“Anytime I’m fishing current and I can keep a flipping rod in my hand, that’s my comfort zone,” Lowen said. “I grew up on the Ohio River, which looks just like (Pickwick) when it’s flooded. I’m used to rising, muddy water; it doesn’t affect me or make me get spun out. I just went out and fished the way I’d fish at home.”

DIY with SeaDek Sheet Material

Over the years, we’ve seen some pretty awesome DIY installs from folks who love a good project, and we couldn’t help but share these photos that we recently received from Emily L., who used SeaDek Sheet Material to breathe new life into her family’s 1994 Cobalt 220.

SeaDek DIY Snow Camo

We used 2 sheets of the brushed snow camo to replace the original carpet. Easy product to work with, and we love how it turned out. We will be recommending to friends and family. Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Emily L.

With time and a bit of patience, excellent results can be achieved cutting your own SeaDek pads at considerable savings to custom work. SeaDek sheet material is available in a 5mm thickness with an embossed or brushed texture in our most popular colors.
