44′ Sea Ray Seadan Bridge Faux Teak SeaDek

I recently finished up a job for a customer who just upgraded his Sea Ray from the 34 Sundancer to the 44 Seadan Bridge.  I decked out the cockpit and swim platform on his last boat and he loved it, so he decided to call me up and work on his new one.  While discussing options on his upgrade, he mentioned that the custom SeaDek in his old boat was a huge selling point and set it apart from the other Sea Ray boats on the market.  Along with the faux teak SeaDek in the cockpit and the swim platform we also added it to the steps going up to the fly bridge and also in the heads.  The interior application of SeaDek is one that has been over looked, but is becoming ever more popular for the provided traction in showers and heads and the cushion on cabin floors and steps.  One of the nice things about the faux teak SeaDek is all the planks and grooves are designed on a computer and cut on a cnc machine so we have the option of making different size planks and borders on the faux teak.  Another popular option on the larger cruising boats is adding the boat name in the cockpit floor.  The customer decided to do it in the middle of the engine hatch which looked very nice.  If you are interest in adding faux teak SeaDek to your Sea Ray or any boat you can contact tyler@castawaycustoms.com.

Ranger Cayman 191 decked with Custom SeaDek

Ranger boats have been around a long time and made there name in the bass boat market, but have made a push in the saltwater market in the past decade or so.  The Ranger Cayman, while not the most popular model in their saltwater lineup provides great versatility and stability.  This customer has had the boat for a while and was looking to dress up the boat a little as well as add the comfort and traction provided by SeaDek.  One of the nice things about adding custom SeaDek to your boat is you can change the look and also the feel of your boat.  There are a wide variety of color combinations and this customer decided to go with a camel over black in 6mm.  SeaDek has recently added some new colors to their color pallet and the camel color is one of the new ones.  This was the first job that I have done with the camel and it came out very nicely.  While not for everyone the camel color adds a nice subtle look and goes well with popular boat colors like fighting lady yellow.  If you are interested in adding custom SeaDek to your Ranger or any skiff you can contact tyler@castawaycustoms.com.

Custom SeaDek on 35 Contender Side Console

When you think about Contender Boats, most people think about open center consoles, but the 35 Side Console model has been around forever.  With a cabin and plenty of seating it is a very nice option for a family boat, but still offers a great layout and cockpit space for fishing.  A customer recently called me up that purchased one that was few years old, but never been titled and spent most of it’s life sitting outside in the sun.  Needless to say it needed a little loving and SeaDek did the trick.  The nonskid pattern was almost gone on the boat, especially in the bow area.  We pretty much decked out the entire boat except for the inside of the cabin and the customer decided to go with a 6mm Caribbean Blue over Bahama Blue.  The customer also wanted to add coaming bolsters to give himself some comfort while fighting fish so we went with a 20mm white.  This was the first time I have ever done this color combination and while it is a little bright, it has a very clean look and grows on you quickly.  We have a wide variety of colors to choose from so if blue isn’t your thing we have something else that will work.  If you are interested in adding custom SeaDek to your boat, skiff, or yacht you can contact Castaway Customs by sending an email to tyler@castawaycustoms.com.

33′ Intrepid Center Console Custom SeaDek

I have a customer down in the Florida Keys with an Intrepid center console.  The boat is used some for fishing and catching lobsters,  but the majority of the time it is used as more of a family boat.  One of the great added benefits of the SeaDek is the traction that it adds to a boat.  Many non skid patterns on boats are not very aggressive and when they become wet, they also become very slippery.  With your kids and family using the boat, safety is always a concern.  SeaDek was designed to provide traction even when soaking wet and that brings some comfort and peace of mind.  Speaking of comfort, on this particular job the customer decided go with an 8mm foam over the standard 6mm for extra comfort and cushion.  The cool gray with storm gray trim is one of the most popular colors options and provides a nice subtle look while providing enough contrast to add logos like we did on the front deck hatch.  If you are interested in adding custom SeaDek to your boat, no matter how large or small of a job, you can contact Castaway Customs at tyler@castawaycustoms.com.
