Big Bass Dreams, Vexus, and SeaDek

For years, bass fishermen have been yearning for SeaDek as a replacement for the marine carpet that has been ubiquitous in bass boats for the last several decades. Until recently, the way many bass boats are manufactured (carpet glued over unfinished fiberglass) has made the substitution difficult, but the tide is beginning to turn as the many benefits of SeaDek are being realized by the bass fishing community.

Our good friend Oliver Ngy of Big Bass Dreams has been a longtime SeaDek partner and we have been putting custom SeaDek in his bass boats for years. With his new Vexus VX21, we drew on all those years of collaboration to design a custom SeaDek kit that sets this boat apart from all the rest. Featuring our laser woodgrain pattern in Mocha over Chocolate, this custom kit was designed to perform in high-stakes tournament settings while also turning heads at the dock. We’ve worked on a lot of really cool projects, but this “Dream Machine” is one for the books!

Rusty Malinoski Joins SeaDek As Brand Ambassador

Partnership Underscores Commitment to Innovation Within Towboat Segment

SeaDek Marine Products, the industry leader in PE/EVA marine non-skid products, is proud to welcome professional wakeboarder Rusty Malinoski to their brand ambassador team.

Originally from Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Rusty began wakeboarding at 13 years old, with a competitive drive that led to countless career wins on the professional wakeboarding circuit, including two World Championship titles and two National Championship titles. He is widely known for being the first rider to land a 1080 in competition, and more than two decades later, he remains a dominant force in competitive wakeboarding with his powerful style earning him the nickname, “Bone Crusher.”

The partnership is especially timely, as it coincides with a new union between Rusty and Nautique Boats. Nautique was an early adopter of SeaDek, and the two companies continue to enjoy a close relationship built around collaboration and innovation.

“I’m so excited to join the SeaDek family,” said Rusty. “I try to align myself with people and companies I truly believe in, and after years of getting to know their team and products, I am confident SeaDek is one of those companies.”

“We’ve been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work and collaborate with Rusty on several projects over the years,” said Jason Gardner, Vice President of Marketing and Advertising at SeaDek. “More than just an incredible athlete, Rusty is a standup guy with a lot of integrity—the kind of person we try to align ourselves with in every segment of the marine industry. We are stoked to be taking this partnership to the next level.”

The Case for Genuine SeaDek

Since introducing PE/EVA nonskid materials to the marine industry more than a decade ago, we have certainly seen our share of knock-off products. While they do come and go, we sympathize with boaters who were misinformed to believe that all marine non-skid is created equal. The fact is that SeaDek is carefully formulated to withstand the elements, utilizing specialized additives and UV-inhibitors to ensure our products perform and look great, year after year.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the multitude of look-alike products on the market today. While many of them appear very similar to Genuine SeaDek when new, the difference usually becomes clear after only a few months in the sun, as these products fade, breakdown, and begin to lift. The owner of this Bayliner 3587 Aft Cabin learned the hard way after installing a generic product on his swim platform. It didn’t take long for the pads to begin failing, which is when he contacted SeaDek Certified Fabricator Contemporary Marine Flooring for a Genuine SeaDek replacement. We love happy endings like this!

When it’s time to select your boat flooring, save yourself time, money, and headache by doing it right the first time with Genuine SeaDek.

SeaDek for Vertical Surfaces

While SeaDek flooring is practically a standard feature on many boats these days, there are other practical but less common applications for SeaDek onboard, including vertical surfaces. There are many types of vertical surface applications, and each one has some specific benefits beyond looking great and offering protection for boat surfaces and yourself. Here are a few:

Undergunnels – Undergunnel pads are the most common use of SeaDek on vertical surfaces for a couple of reasons. In addition to offering cushion for your toes, they protect both your rods and reels, and the gelcoat in boats with undergunnel rod storage. These panels are also excellent places to put fish rulers, logos, and custom graphics.

Walls – Boats with high sides and shiny gelcoat often utilize vertical SeaDek pads to cut glare and soften the light in the cockpit. By using light-colored pads, they can reduce the ambient temperature aboard and eliminate troublesome reflections. This is a very popular application on the large center consoles that are becoming more and more prevalent.

Doors and Hatches – Swinging doors and hatches benefit from SeaDek because it adds a protective layer to those prone to swinging open and closed, especially in elevated seas. Anyone who has ever had their knee cap slammed by a swinging console door can appreciate the usefulness of this application.

DIY SeaDek in a Jonboat

We love to remind people that it doesn’t matter how big or small your boat is, there is always a place for SeaDek! Jonboats are the perfect example, as they often have dark colored decks and seats that get piping hot in the sun, as well as slippery when wet. SeaDek solves both of these problems, and our DIY Sheet Material is an inexpensive and easy way to bring comfort and safety to any jonboat.

We recently received these photos of a great DIY SeaDek installation from Seth in Florida, who used our Embossed Army Camo Sheet Material to cover his seats and casting deck. He said, “It might not be the biggest, but it sure is the best!” Nice work, Seth!

SeaDek DIY sheets provide the same exceptional traction as custom SeaDek, and keep surfaces cool and comfortable all day long. 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.

SeaDek for Houseboats

With steep staircases, large swim platforms, and wide-open spaces near the water’s edge, houseboats have many applications for SeaDek that provide great looks and functionality.

Take this 20’ x 102’ Thoroughbred Houseboat constructed in Monticello, Kentucky (the houseboat capital of the world). Named the Stein Way and Sons, she was launched in July of 2020 and can be found plying the waters of Lake Cumberland. SeaDek Certified Fabricator SC Wake installed custom SeaDek pads on the aft deck and both stairwells in Terra over Black, which compliment the boat perfectly and provide a safe place to recreate for her guests and crew. We love it!
