I'll get a picture of it on the boat eventually... but I just stuck it on tonight... looks absolutely great btw.

I used Mineral Spirits to get most of the junk off, then I washed the platform with soapy water and rinsed it, and dried it off, then cleaned it with Acetone, and washed it again...

The SeaDek material is insanely sticky btw.. ;)

Looks great. The pad is a good investment, we love ours.

Spyder, is that the White over Black, or is it the Light Grey over Black? I am getting one either today or tomorrow, but can't decide what color to go with. Boat colors are Red on the water, and Black everywhere else. Black fiberglass on the inside of the boat too.

Chuck at SeaDek said they do the Black over White pads often, but it could ptoentially lose some of it's texture in really hot climates. Being in eastern Wa, we don't don't real extreme temps for long. I'm just worried an all White Deck would be too much.

Took advantage of having the platform at home.. ground all the water scum and junk off the brackets and resprayed them flat black.. looks so much better.

wish I had a before photo..

spyder, You think it looks good, just wait till you crawl up onto it from the water. You'll LOVE it even more.

Mine took a week to get. Order was processed on monday and Pad was at the house Friday.

You can call Chuck and make sure its been sent. He can give you a tracking # and everything.

I talked to him and ordered on Monday as well. He said that they have a big job for a manufacturer and was a rush to get deal done. Said it may take a little longer than usual but wanted me to know. I was hoping to try it before end of season to but will have to wait till spring :(

I ordered mine last Thursday, and Chuck said it was about a 10 day lead time, maybe a bit more, so I would think that it's probably something like 3 to 4 weeks from the time your order is placed to the time it's in your hands. That's just my guess anyways.

I'll for sure have to wait till next year to enjoy... but boy am I looking forward to it!

Sled, had bubbles form for about a month after install-all I did was stick a straight pin at a angle and pop the bubble, worked all the air out and so far no more bubbles. Most of them i could feel but not really see.

Cool, like I said not a huge deal, just kind of unsightly.
