Team Talk members,

The time has come for me to re-do the top material on molded fiberglass swim platform (96 PS 190). I think that I will be going to seadek. Attached is my initial design, created in AutoCAD...please critique. All comments welcome.

I like it.....love my SeaDek on my X2 platform.

I want to get a matching one for the front also.......

Are you sure you want to go with black? For some reason Seadek advised me to not use black as the base color. I ended up going with the grey for the base color and black in the lettering.

russlars,

I have not picked the colors yet...the attached picture is just for design intent. The black background and color is just the AutoCAD software. Thanks for posting.

That looks pretty sharp. You could go with a Stars & Stripes look.

I have the same boat, and used the pattern kit to create mine with Seadek. I was very happy with the final result, and if you take a few minutes to watch their installation video, it'll go on perfect. I had a lot of small dings to fix first.
Here's mine, looks pretty close to yours!

For what it is worth, I went with black from Seadek anyhow, regardless of their warnings. It looks awesome, and I keep my boat inside storage when not in use and cover the deck with a towel on the boat when say, it is out in front of my house pre/post boating for a day to protect it from UV damage. Seadek's main concern with black is down in Florida or Texas where the sun can beat down on the material with regular high temps over a period of several months without cover. I like your design.

Wanted to give an update on my swim platform restoration. My SeaDek order came in and I spent good amount of time cleaning platform in preparation for new attachment pad. Removed original pad, (frayed, cut and showing terrible ware), with lacquer thinner to remove glue. Finished with acetone to remove all residue.

I also order additional SeaDek pieces for trailer steps since you can not seem to find replacement pads. Also ordered some small transom step pads.

Please comment.

Dude, nice work on using the old star. I love it. Not going to lie, I have been debating my seadeck design for the last 3 months and this exact idea has been at the top of my list forever. I have only seen this star on the center cap o my steering wheel.

Anyone know if this star was used anywhere else?

Also, it appears your pad has a stipple to it. Like a basketball would. True or not?

Thanks for the post. I did all design work using AutoCad. All SeaDek material, to my knowledge, has the same texture. Micro Dot Emposed.

Beautiful work. I have to refinish the glass deck of my '77 and I see I need to with SeaDek.

I need to do the steps on my '97 trailer. That looks really nice. Mind if I ask what the cost was for the trailer pieces?

When I started with SeaDek....I was looking to purchase just swim deck pad. Sales told me that I would be required to purchase 1 full sheet of material but had some room left over for other pads. Bottom line is that I don't know individual price breakdown for each. Star and MC's a little extra. Everything you see less than 400 shipped. I have access to AutoCad, so I did all of my own measurement and sent them DXF files so it could go directly to prodution for the most part.

Wanted to let anyone know who might be interested in the trailer step pads. The set of pads as shown above are $150 which is the minimum charge for custom cutting from Seadek. If you don't want the two tone or MC logo you can buy what they call a long sheet of material and easily cut the pieces yourself for $75.

Now ai have to decide which way I want to go. The custom with the logo sure looks nice.
