The question tends to arise from time to time, “What the difference between SeaDek and other EVA/PE brands?” For starters, SeaDek is the brand name that has become the generic name for all marine foam decking. Similar to Coca-Cola, Velcro, or Kleenex; those are all products that are common names and misused by many consumers to describe other similar products. SeaDek has been creating non-skid marine decking since 2004 and Castaway Customs has been creating custom SeaDek applications since 2007. The question consumers have to ask themselves is, “Does the brand name warrant paying the premium in cost?”
From my experience, you normally get what you pay for. We’ve all purchased products to save a few bucks and later regretted the purchase. If the physical product isn’t made well your not going to be happy. If you call in to talk to someone about issues and you don’t get a response or they take to long to service, you’re not going to be happy. If the product doesn’t fit well in your boat, you’re not going to be happy.
When most customers are looking to purchase marine flooring for their boats they are working within a budget. There are a few things consider when price shopping. Making sure to compare apples to apples is always important. There is a wide variety of options from pattern to thickness that can affect the pricing. You want to make sure that you’re comparing the same exact options across the board. We have customers who call price shopping not realize we are actually offering more or have more to offer. While Castaway Customs isn’t always the cheapest option, your getting genuine SeaDek with turnaround times and service that are unmatched in the industry.
Life is all about experiences and learning from those experiences in order to make better decisions in the future.
As a consumer, if you had a good experience with a company or product, you’re likely to use their products or services again. Castaway Customs and SeaDek Marine Products both pride themselves in putting the customer first.

With our competitors, you have the option to pick 2 out of 3 options between quality, quickness, and cost. With other companies, choosing the option of quality and quickness doesn’t provide the cost you’re looking for. If you decide to go with quality and cost, then your quickness suffers. Decide to choose quickness and cost, no your quality suffers. Castaway Customs prides itself in offering the perfect combination of all 3. We offer the hands down the quickest turn around time with the best quality at a price that won’t break the bank. You know you’re getting genuine SeaDek from the company with the most experience.
