Order an X23?? Want SeaDek?? Your welcome!

Well, Fellas. I spent the night laying in my boat doing this dang pattern....

Will have it complete tomorrow, and sent back to SeaDek.

Yes, I am patterning the side steps on the hips.
Yes, I am patterning the step on the bow.
Yes, I will tell SeaDek that they can make these patterns publicly available for anyone else with an X23.

Not at all a fun job, but, I am 95% done. Only need to do the bow step tomorrow. Also, I did very large patterns, and overlapped the patterns, so that SeaDek could have 100% perfect alignment and orientation of the panels. This should make for an extremely accurate pattern.

Very cool, I think someone else was on here last week or so, with some patterns for all of the new boats as well

Looking forward to the finished product

FourFourty you're the best!!! I will be VERY interested in the hips and the bow step. Will the seadek stick to those surfaces as they are pebbled from the factory and not smooth?

Thanks

It should! SeaDek is actually designed to stick to those textured surfaces. 99% of the time, that is what it is being stuck to. (Floors and step areas and such, that are always textured from the factory.

How did you go about making them?

Did you use a compass or something to get the circles and some sort of straight edge for the long lines?

^ Wanted to use a compass for the curves, but the sheet is really slippery. It was too hard to keep the compass anchored on the pivot point (without poking it into the floor).

I just took my time and carefully drew it by hand. However, I did use a straight edge for the long straight sections.

Man Im jealous. When I test drove an X23 the dealer I test drove with warned me to stay away from Seadek because they didn't have much success with the material sticking to the floor. Idk if maybe they didn't prep right or they didn't use glue but they said it was cause due the textured floor and water would get underneath the material. I opted to go with the deckadance flooring. However I will be interested in do this on the side hips and bow.

Thanks for taking on this endeavor

Yeah, my biggest worry about doing this is sand and stuff getting up under the edges. I think the seadek has self adhesive backing on it so I'm not sure other glues are needed/helpful in keeping it down.

I would think that if entire perimeter isn't sealed down sand would work in there and after time would destroy the bond from the underside.

I'm at a cross-roads right now as my carpet is almost 10 years old and I'm looking to replace it. I like the look and feel of seadek but I'm a little worried about durability and adhesion. I wish there were more people with long term use with textured surfaces to draw conclusions from.
