SeaDek non-skid decking has been around for a while and commonly used on power boats, ski boats and fiberglass fishing boats.
In Florida we have the SeaDek in the 23′ Seabreeze “Here’s the Catch! TV boat and I must confess that its durable and extremely comfortable to walk on, not to mention safe and non-slip.
For the first time in my 35yr career Team Boats out of Bala, ON build a custom RAD1640 Canadian Sportfishing Edition all-welded, 3/16′ center-consul aluminum fishing boat. I made the request to the owners Jesse & Shane to leave the aluminum bare (as shown above, instead of finishing it off with a permanent, non-skid marine paint) so that I could have the SeaDek decking installed. Mike Simon from Launch Marine Concepts out of London, ON drove to Bala, ON and scanned the boat as soon as it was built.
Due to Covid-19 and a shortage of imported materials I had to wait a few months to get the decking but it was well worth it.
The Rad1640 looks great and the SeaDek decking compliments the fine aluminum workmanship.
