While undeniable beautiful, it’s no secret that teak decks require a ton of maintenance, with sanding, caulking, sealing, and oiling turning into a seemingly full-time job for many boat owners. But while the allure of natural wood may be worth the work for some, eventually many abandon their hardwood dreams for something that leaves more time for fishing—SeaDek!
Thanks to its closed-cell PE/EVA foam composition, SeaDek requires virtually no regular maintenance and is formulated to withstand the sun, salt, and myriad abuses that come with offshore boating and fishing. Add comfort underfoot and nearly endless possibilities for customization, and it’s no wonder that SeaDek is a consistent frontrunner when weighing alternatives to the real thing.
SeaDek Certified Fabricator Chesapeake Mfg. recently rehabbed the decks of the April Mae, a 65 Hatteras with a serious reputation for raising fish. After replacing traditional teak with a custom-cut SeaDek kit in Mocha over Black, the April Mae took on new life with a modern take on a classic look.
As any good business owner should, Brian and his family put the product through its paces in the bluewater last month and landed some quality fish in the process. Judging by the smiles on the crew, we’d say everyone approved!
Based in New Bern, North Carolina, Chesapeake Mfg. provides custom SeaDek design, fabrication, and installation services in North Carolina, as well as in locations throughout the Northeast.
