Snow Camo SeaDek on Dolphin Super Skiff

I had the pleasure to meet up with Capt. Raul Montoro down in Miami.  He fishes throughout South Florida and the Florida Keys.  Raul runs a 17′ Dolphin Super Skiff that he keeps in great shape.  He was looking for a way to make his boat more quiet for chasing big bonefish in Biscayne Bay and also make it more comfortable for his clients.  Turns out the snow camo SeaDek was just the ticket.  He decided to go with a floor kit, poling platform pad, casting platform pad, and under gunnel pads.  The carpet on his under gunnels had started to tear up after only a few years so he figured he would fix the problem once and for all by going with SeaDek.  The look of the snow camo really sets his boat apart and looks great.  Make sure to check out Raul at www.biscaynebayfishing.com.  If you are interested in getting some SeaDek for your boat feel free to call me at 321-537-2039 or email me at tyler@castawaycustoms.com

Poling and Casting Platform Pads

If you have ever spent any time fishing on a flats boat or skiff, you realize that most of the time is spent on either a poling or casting platform.  You are either poling an angler around on the poling platform, or you are the angler on the bow or casting platform.  SeaDek is a great application for both.  If you are strictly looking for traction our 3mm would work, but most customers choose to go with either 5mm or 6mm SeaDek.  The 5mm is a single color foam and has a nice beveled edge which provides a neat finished look.  If you want to add a little flare you can choose to go with a two color laminated foam.  This allows use to route down through the top layer of foam and engrave logos, it also give the beveled edge a two tone look.  For those who guide or just spend long periods of time on a poling platform and need a little extra cushion our 8mm material will provide that extra comfort.  We have a wide variety of patterns and templates to fit most platform tops.  If we don’t already have a pattern we can either scan it or you can order a template kit and make a template we can work off of.  One way or the other we will meet your needs.  If you have any questions feel free to contact me at tyler@castawaycustoms.com or call me at 321-537-2039.
