Maverick 17 HPX-V Tender on Garlington Sportfishing Yacht

Castaway Customs just finished a trip down to Islamorada to install custom SeaDek on a Maverick HPX-V sitting on the bow of a Garlington.  The boat captain was tired of slipping on the nonskid and looking for something to make those long days fishing more comfortable.  We decide to deck out everything to give the boat a fresh new look.  We decided to go with a cool gray over storm gray to give it a nice subtle look.  The original carpet in the skiff, although not that old, was starting to fall off and look a little dingy so we also decide to upgrade to SeaDek on the undergunnels.  This is a very popular option on the Maverick line of boats and any flats boat really.  We also decked out a couple of Yeti Coolers with Hogfish logos on them for the boat.  Keep checking back in for a write up on the cockpit of the big boat.  We are working on a neat job for her.  If you are interested in getting any custom SeaDek work done on your boat, no matter how big or small, feel free to contact me at tyler@castawaycustoms.com

Custom SeaDek for Rampage 34 Express

Captain Troy Sapp is a fishing guide based out of West Central Florida fishes what they call the Nature Coast of Florida.  He guides out of a Maverick 21′ Master Angler as well as this Rampage 34′ Express.  He wanted to know if the SeaDek product could dampen the growl of 920 HP diesels under the floor.  The sound deadening ability is one characteristic of SeaDek that is often overlooked or forgot about.  From a large Sportfish or express style boat like Troy’s Rampage to a small flats boat or skiff, SeaDek definitely quiets a boat down.  He also was looking for something with comfort and traction which SeaDek also provides.  After deciding upon the colors I made a trip back over to install the boat.  The pictures don’t do the boat justice.  The marlin logo designed by Boldwater really sets the boat off.  The black border around the beach sand is a very nice color combination which really pops also.  The boat looked like a brand new boat after it was installed.  For more info on getting custom SeaDek for your boat contact Castaway Customs at 321-537-2039 or shoot me an email at tyler@castawaycustoms.com.

Custom SeaDek Coaming Bolster Pads

I recently did a job for Capt. Chris Walter of Get Bent Sportfishing out of Hawks Cay Marina in Duck Key Florida.  Chris restored an older 23′ SeaCraft and had some customers complaining about needing bolster pads while fighting fish so your thighs and legs don’t hurt at the end of a long day on the water.  Chris contacted me and wanted to get some custom SeaDek coaming bolster pads designed so I had him pull some basic measurements off of the boat and I cut and shipped the pads down to him.  With the easy peel and stick application, it makes applying the pads very simple.  You don’t have to worry about drilling any holes in the boat at all.  If you are interested in getting a set of custom coaming bolster pads made for your boat contact Castaway Customs at 321-537-2039 or shoot me an email to tyler@castawaycustoms.com.
