Getting excited for the upcoming boat shows

I know.......they are still months away, but we are preparing now as we now have two booths to design, set up and figure out manning and logistics.    We have ordered all of the material we will need to design and cut a SeaDek floor and make several new platforms that show off the Safe Step Swim Platforms but also the SeaDek product.

Not really looking forward to 2 additional boat shows from the standpoint of manning a booth for 10 hours for ten days.....but, I realize that that is what it takes to get the word out there and really boost this product on the west coast.  It's an awful lot of work, but we do get to meet some nice people and it always pays off with new customers.

I'm very much hoping that we get some inquiries from customers that have amped up boats that want some amped up SeaDek.   The funnest thing I get to do is to help a customer design a really sick graphic that jacks their boat up to the next level.

So, if you are in Seattle, Portland or Spokane during their respective boat shows...

come and visit us in our booth and mention this blog post.   That will surely make our day!

Your boat deserves SeaDek!   #SeaDek  #customSeaDek  customSeaDekPNW #contemporarymarineflooring

New page on the Contemporary Marine Flooring website


I want you to check out the new page on the website-

We labeled it...   "Express yourself"....   because it is about urging more customers to realize the endless Design possibilities for SeaDek.    Over 400 different color combinations and some Very unique and creative designs.

We even created an incentive where customers who come up with extremely creative designs will be rewarded with a discount on their confirmed order.    I really have fun working with people on their designs and discovering myself what is possible.

SeaDek just released these new designs and I wanted to show you....

Really neat stuff along with the new colors just released.

So if you are in the market for a unique non skid flooring for your boat, visit our website:

Cheers!    Scott and Jeanne

SeaDek humming along

We are up and running strong.   Each day we learn more about the process.    CAD, templating,'s ALL fun!   Very busy....but I've never loved being this busy so much.    And we are taking our time on each and every job so that it turns out just right.  And it is paying off.....check out the Rinker forum and you will find a posting from Bill Johnson, a customer located in Seattle.    My sister Kathi template the boat and Jeanne and Jamie drew the pads and I cut them and then Kathi installed them.    Really turned out nice!!

We are thinking about having a contest that will reward the winner with free SeaDek up to $5,000.00.    Please if you read this, please write to me and tell me if you think will be a good idea.    The contest will be who can do the sickest mod (retrofit) to their boat which of course must include SeaDek.

In the meantime, back to work.    If you are interested in SeaDek for your boat and you live west of the Mississippi, call or write.    We can assist.

Thanks and cheers all.

Scott and Jeanne

Dogs DO love SeaDek

And so do I!      How much fun is this?     I put a pad on my SUP so that Eddie can go with me paddling.......he loves it!!     And, I built him a ramp which he also loves.....      You could use this for getting into / out of a truck / car; getting out of a pool or lake and back onto a boat; onto a couch; onto a get it?     Very useful and we can customize it for the size of your pet and the design of the SeaDek!!!


Have a Great Fourth of July holiday weekend!!

Perfect example of the synergy between Contemporary Fiberglass and Contemporary Marine Flooring!!


See photo below to see exactly why I'm so excited to be producing SeaDek now.     It will pare perfectly with my existing business-   Contemporary Fiberglass and Marine.     We completed this Safe Step Swim Platform for Dave's 2008 Crownline.    It looks like it was made exactly for this boat......because it was!!!   And then he chose perfect colors in Mica over black and a very simple, clean SeaDek design.     A combination that no other swim platform manufacturer can duplicate!!

Very proud of my entire team right now, including Kale who built the platform, Jeanne (my wife and co-owner of Contemporary Marine Flooring) who assisted me in the SeaDek, Jaime, who continues to rock the website and the rest of our friends and family who support us.     2016 is going to be a Great one peoples!!!

See you on the water!

Good morning.

I have a customer, Ken, who stored his boat in a barn last year and when it came out this spring, it appears that some creature (a racoon??) may have severely damaged his swim platform.    He brought it to me for repairs.     I quoted him just under $2,000.00 to repair, OR, I gave him the option of covering it with SeaDek…for about $600.00.

As you can see, not only did it cover the ugly, but it added a nice look to the platform, functional non-skid and Value to the boat.    He is pleased and I’ve got another reason to be a fan of SeaDek!!

WE have been selling SeaDek.  It's amazing how fast the word is getting out that it is now available in the Pacific Northwest.   I am slowly learning my CNC machine.    My daughter, Alee Jo, told me about a client of hers and her husband, who by the way is a professor at the local community college.    He teaches CNC!   Hello!!   So I have talked to him and he is going to give me instruction.    I feel great about this development.

For now, I'm just going to enjoy the rest of my Sunday and look forward to the holiday weekend.

Have a Great day yourself!
