As promised, here is the Terra over Black Seadek installed on our 2016 242. When I was "shopping" it was pretty difficult to find posts with the different colors of seadek installed on the 2015 and newer 242. So, hopefully this helps someone. The removal of the factory chocolate seadek was really pretty easy. Maybe mine was not installed very well or something. I used a heat gun to get it warm to touch and then used a faster but steady speed. The decking liked to come out in sections of two strips at a time. Barely left any residue. A bit of goof off and a final cleaning of acetone and done. The hardest part was getting the lines perfect. Take your time and its done in a day. All the Optional items are on the way. I will post those as well.IMG_1760.jpg IMG_1761.jpgIMG_1760.jpg IMG_1761.jpgIMG_1762.jpg IMG_1760.jpgIMG_1760.jpg IMG_1761.jpgIMG_1762.jpgIMG_1766.jpgIMG_1752.jpgIMG_1754.jpgIMG_1765.jpgIMG_1783.jpgIMG_1782.jpgIMG_1784.jpgIMG_1769.jpgIMG_1789.jpgIMG_1791.jpgIMG_1767.jpgIMG_1760.jpg IMG_1761.jpgIMG_1762.jpgIMG_1766.jpgIMG_1752.jpgIMG_1754.jpgIMG_1765.jpgIMG_1783.jpgIMG_1782.jpgIMG_1784.jpgIMG_1769.jpgIMG_1789.jpgIMG_1791.jpgIMG_1767.jpg

Looks great but I was distracted by the helicopter, jet and prop plane in the background. I would consider myself fortunate just to have a covered place to work on my boat when I install the terra over black seadek I ordered (basically every thing you did not order as my family wants to keep the carpet).

Looks Outstanding! @Brad Meeuwse where did you get your Seadek? I see yours came in singular pieces for the bow floor, ski locker and rear cockpit. THAT would have been nice!!

Boat looks tiny next to "Sexy Sue" LOL!

haha! yes, sexy sue is a sweetheart. i ordered my seadek through will at jet boat pilot. i requested those middle mats be combined. it was $100 extra, but worth it i think. i had ordered all the optional mats as well, but they were not in my shipment. a little miscommunication, but the mats are on their way now. i will send one...only one picture... of the optional mats installed. not 100 pictures over and over again. lol i think the terra over black is a great color choice with the tan accents on the interior. id recommend it...:)

Ok so the pic with the plane...damn. Quick look and I thought : B-25? Then realized the nose was too slender. Anyway, what a beauty Sue is. Great choice in Seadeck colors.
The rest of this I just posted in sofakingbig's Seadeck post but thought I would add it here too:
Very nice! I did the same thing and love it. Get a bottle of simple green, dilute it 50% and keep that on board. It's the best stuff for scrubbing oil stains, red clay dirt stains, whatever, off of the Seadeck.
However the locker cover has shrunk terribly due to the reflection off the day head door. So if you are leaving it sitting in the sun while on the beach or whatever, lay down some life vests or towels on that area. I know you probably read the warnings about this from the manufacturer. I'm just letting you know it's a real issue.

I believe that is an A-26, much smaller than a B-25 for sure but definitely a bada$$ plane!!!!

Great shots inside the hangar by the way!!!

Sexy Sue is a 1944 Douglas A-26 "Invader". (Also known as a B26...but not to be confused with a "Marauder") The A-26 was built to replace the B-25.

Really good idea on the simple green. I wouldn't have thought of that. I already need some degreasing from our last camping trip. My kids walked though some grease and then onto the transom. BBQ grease everywhere. lol I'll give the simple green a test. Thanks!

First of all nice install, I love the color, a lot. I just ordered some SeaDek pieces from JBP today and they'll be here next week. I just got matching pieces for the few areas that didn't come included from Yamaha that I want to cover for protection and traction. Could you tell me what you did for surface prep before applying the SeaDek, such as cleaning solvents and tools, and abrasives? I don't need to remove any old material, I will be putting over bare fiberglass. Thanks.

I'm assuming the EC-130 isn't yours? Lol

That A-26 was restored across the ramp from where I work. Used to see it fly before he sold it. I guess I know where it ended up.

The Seadeck looks awesome but planes are still my first love. Thus my screen name.

Brad Meeuwse These pics have really helped me out. Thanks!!! I have the same color interior as you and was debating what color to get. I really like the Chocolate over black, but I was worried about the melting issue warning from Jet Boat Pilot. I didn't want to go to light, because I was worried about the mats getting really dirty. The Terra seems like a great option. Not to dark, not to light!!!!
