Any interest in a Hydro-Teak or Seadek group buy?

I am thinking of doing the whole boat. Anyone else considering doing the same before the season starts?

This could not come at a worst time for me. I have been drooling over the teak platform for 1 or 2 years and just never pulled the trigger. Now I have a baby on the way in a few months and I am holding off any purchases until after the baby is here.

@dan144k i think either color in the hydro-teak would look great with red. I am leaning towards the darker just for upkeep and showing less dirt. But on the down side it will get hotter. But they say just throw some water on it.

Here is a link to some pics from Will's flikr page. http://www.flickr.com/photos/110764339@N03/sets/72157638410684275/

@JetBoatPilot - Will what amount would we need to order to get discounts? Also some links on your home page at the bottom are not working properly.

I want to do this also,, but I just don't know all the differences between the different kinds and am not sure at all what to go with. I have found many post from different people praising all the different kinds..I wish I could see a boat with each in place to compare.

Some additional pics for seadek in our boats http://www.flickr.com/photos/110764339@N03/sets/72157638416006433/

I am torn between the two products as well. From what I hear seadek is softer and feels better but can be damaged easier from things like twisting your foot in one spot and the poles for your cover leaving marks. I am leaning towards the hydro-teak.

I bought the Hydro-Turf kit back in November and haven't installed it yet. I'm kinda wishing I had gotten the teak instead.

We just completed the install of our Hydro-Teak. Ordered it at the end of summer and had set in my garage since October. 20140222_151022.jpg20140222_151217.jpg 20140215_154938.jpg 20140215_155040.jpg 20140215_155027.jpg

@marc7 looks awesome! Is that the darker color hydro-teak? Any comments on feel or quality, easy to scuff so far?

During Will's Christmas sale, I purchased the complete Hydro-teak kit and installed it in January. Will helped me design the boats name into the swim platform. The installation was very easy and the old Hydro-turf came off with very little effort. I really like this product better than carpet.

Just for some clarification on the three products:

Hydro Turf and Hydro-Teak is the same product. We have created the Hydro-Teak name for our own marketing but it is really the same thing. Same chemical makeup and all. Hydro-Turf is what Yamaha uses at the factory for the swim platforms.

Hydro-Teak is an open cell foam rubber. Open cell foam can absorb liquids and has shown a tendency to deteriorate a bit faster than SeaDek. Keeping a cover on the boat helps prevent the deterioration also called powdering. For the moment we are limited to only one color combo, Charcoal Gray Over Black. We tried the Slate Gray Over Black but the material was not consistent enough in the top color's thickness and caused major quality control problems.

SeaDek is a closed cell EVA foam and will not absorb liquids. This product tends to be about 20% higher in cost when compared to the Hydro-Teak and longer lasting. SeaDek also comes in a multitude of color choices. You can pick any top color and pair it with any bottom color to get a really trick look. Also you can choose the top surface texture. Either embossed tread dots or brushed finish. SeaDek has some really cool looking wood colors so you can recreate a true Teak wood look if you like.

I have not given a lot of consideration to doing a group buy this early in the season, but might consider it if the numbers were strong. Let me put some thought to it.

The install itself was less than 2 hours...The prep work was several hours.
