“The pad that started it all.”
The perfect application for SeaDek. The pad that started it all. The quintessential place to create comfort and traction. Whether you’re out fishing all day or just cruising around the sandbar with the wife and kids, a SeaDek helm pad will make your boating experience more comfortable and enjoyable.
When SeaDek started out 15 years ago the goal was to create products utilizing EVA/PE foams that would make your time spent on the water the best possible. One of the very first products designed was the helm pad. While operating any watercraft, safety should always be at the forefront of your mind. SeaDek provides and excellent traction, even when wet, and goes back to the roots of SeaDek as an evolution of surfboard pads. The density of the helm pad provides the perfect combination of comfort while not being too soft so the person at the helm still feels sure-footed. The SeaDek helm pad has checked all boxes for customers and is used throughout the marine industry by many of the top OEM builders as standard equipment.
Castaway Customs has the ability to take something that is great and make it better by allowing customers to customize their helm pads. With a variety of thickness and colors, we can create a pad that accents with the color palette of your boat. We have the ability with both CNC router and laser machines to add custom logos. Whether you want the name of your boat, the brand of boat, or a fish logo, we have you covered. Our design team has created more custom helm pads than anyone else in the industry and can easily walk you through the process to ensure your needs are met. Castaway Customs has many helm pads for boats digitized on file and we have the ability to create custom patterns for any custom application. Stock options work well in most cases; a stock large helm pad is 16″ x 39″, and a small is 14″ x 36″.
SeaDek helm pads have always been known for their superior peel and stick application thanks to their partnership with 3M Adhesives. For most applications, the peel-and-stick is best suited, but an occasion does arise where having a removable helm pad is necessary. Castaway Customs has designed a rubber backed SeaDek helm pad for these applications. With a rubber backed helm pad, you gain the added benefits of traction, comfort, and style without having to adhere to the deck. Many of our customers have the same outside the box thinking and utilize these removable pads for areas where anti-fatigue mats are necessary like a cleaning table, rigging desk, or dock.
