Default Removing Seadek

This was enough to convince me never to put seadek on. But we got it up off my friends Intrepid!


Sliced into strips and the multi tool. I would easily say this would be a $5000 job to do!

I can feel for you. Just pulled it out of the speed boat. What a PIA.
commercial strength goo gone worked.
spray a little, let it work, start scrapping.
repeat
repeat
maybe try a heat gun?

Went through this a few years ago but on a smaller scale. Never again.

Uggghhh! That looks like a nasty job. So, which color/style of Seadek is he putting back down? ;-)

Well what the hell did you expect? It's supposed to stick. If it didn't you would bitch that it doesn't stick and I'd never put it down. Most everything requires work. Get it done and move on.

Just did this on our 32 demo boat. Being a Marine Mat installer though. Its not a problem for us. Took a few hours but they all came up just as they went down. Then again when you do around 100 boats a year with it you learn tricks to getting it up.

It starts looking it's age in about five years, eight is max. It's not a one and never needs replacing product if you keep boats longer than that. Or to a new potential buyer, it wears and need replacement.

Its all in how you pull on it. Along with you got to use the little tool. But you don't scrape it like a puddy knife with the grain. You just take the edge of the blade and go side to side as you use your other hand and hold it up. Stuff comes right up and doesn't fall apart like that.

LOL.....sorry for sounding harsh. I just get tired of people knocking a product for something it's supposed to do. Anyways the Envy is for the wife and I'm a Zaya man. Good luck with getting the glue up. Acetone and rags will be your friend with this project.

No its not. Both Sea Dek and Marine Mat that I sell are great products. Once you get it down you will ask yourself why you didnt do it sooner.

He said 10 years old. LMAO we got guys out here replacing motors yearly. Electronics every few years. And then we got someone wanting to see 10 year old stuff from companies that are hardly that old. Theres two types of boaters. Those who love it. And those who hate it. I would replace this stuff every year in my charter boat if I had too. The comfort out weighs everything else. But thats just me.
