Custom from the SeaDek Factory

Whether you happen to be out of range of a SeaDek Fabricator or Installer, or just prefer to do things yourself, we continue to offer custom SeaDek kits directly from the factory via our helpful and knowledgable Customer Advocate Team.

Working with a dedicated SeaDek representative makes creating your custom kit easy, and with a little extra time and effort, can yield the same great results that you’d get from a SeaDek professional.

Andy from Houston just wrapped up a custom SeaDek project on his 2008 Sea Ray 220SD that turned out excellent! He chose 6mm Cream over Terra with 2″ teak lines and installed the parts himself. Nice work, Andy!

SeaDek for a Sunfish

Sailboats deserve SeaDek too! No matter what kind of boat gets you on the water, there is always a place for SeaDek! Providing great traction and looks, SeaDek can be customized for almost any application, no matter how large or small.

Take this Sunfish sailboat for example. We digitally patterned the deck to ensure a perfect fit and then designed a teak-style kit reminiscent of a classic teak deck yacht. Add the fact that the sailors no longer have to worry about sliding across the deck when heeled over and it’s safe to say that SeaDek was a total game-changer for this small-scale sailboat!

Season Finale: Guiding Flow with Chico Fernandez

The season finale of Guiding Flow is here and it is a very special one. Captain Benny grew up idolizing Chico Fernandez for everything he represents, but especially his ability to tell a story with passion. In this episode, he shares stories of the earliest days of saltwater fly fishing, the Everglades & Biscayne Bay in the 1950s, and his thoughts on the interconnectivity of all our watersheds. His historical perspective is the perfect setting for explaining the curse of shifting baseline and establishing a goal for the restoration of our estuaries. This is one of our favorites and we hope you enjoy it.

“Oceans to Everglades” is hosted by the Ocean Conservancy, highlighting the importance of Everglades restoration as the main combatant to sea-level rise. Join Captain Benny and Chico as they address the shifting baseline and explain how our most important fisheries are connected.

SeaDek and Wicked Tuna

Since meeting Captain Tj Ott of National Geographic’s hit series Wicked Tuna in 2018 and making the first custom SeaDek kit for the Hot Tuna, we have gotten to know many of the show’s captains as they discovered all the benefits of SeaDek. With their style of fishing requiring grueling hours on deck—often in heavy North Atlantic seas—both the fishing and film crews fell in love with the combination of comfort and aggressive non-skid properties provided by SeaDek. And because they wanted to look great too, we were able to design custom kits that really shined on screen.

The newest member of the cast to get onboard with SeaDek is Bob Cook of the Fat Tuna. We designed a clean and simple kit for his 40′ Duffy, featuring Cool Gray over Storm Gray with pinlines and pocket logos. We love the new look— enjoy your SeaDek, Bob!

Special thanks to Certified Fabricators Chesapeake Mfg. and Performance Sail Tools for all their help on these projects!

Carolina Skiff Ultra Elite Before and After

It seems like our customers get just as excited about before and after photos as we do; it’s just remarkable how a custom SeaDek kit can completely transform a boat! Joel from South Carolina recently worked with our Customer Advocate Team to design a custom SeaDek kit for his new Carolina Skiff 21 Ultra Elite, which he then installed himself. We think the results speak for themselves—sweet ride Joel!
