Getting close to finishing my order and just want to confirm something as I cannot seem to find much discussion on the subject...

I am looking at Seadek on the floor of my Axis and i'm trying to figure out if I can expect it to be a hot surface after sitting in the sun. I guess all things considered I'll ask if its hotter than other products? Obviously most anything sitting in the sun is hot but just curious what to expect.

Ive narrowed it down to Seadek as the other option was Deckadence.....although its a fantastic looking/feeling/functional product....its $2000 for a drop in piece for just the floor of the boat. For half of that ill be redoing the floor, all non skid areas, and the back swim deck.

Before you go out, take the water hose and spray the floor. Seadek is hot at first but when it gets wet it stays cool for the rest of the day.

I don't know about stays cool the rest of the day. Depends on you're weather I suppose. 100+, you're wearing shoes in the boat. Especially if direct sunlight is hitting it.

i guess thats similar to the mat that came stock in the boat. Hot at first but with a little air and water it stays cool all day. driving around none of it really sits in the sun that much I guess.

I have grey Seadek on my A24 platform and when it's dry you can't stand on it more than a few seconds when it gets around 95 degrees or more. I also agree, depends on where you live. If you live in the south...forget it in my opinion. I had the Tatami mat in my A22 and in Texas you could forget about that as well from the middle of June to the middle of Sept...very hot on the feet.

I have tan and really don't think it gets that hot under foot. I'm in Charlotte NC so temps get into the upper 90's so it does get hot but I don't have an issue with my sea deck. Maybe that's because it's always getting wet as well, who knows. I love it.

If you get the light colours it is great. If you get a dark colour it can get hot. Just like upholstery. I love mine!

What is the best way to clean it. I have light gray and it gets dirty so fast

Water and perhaps a light brush with soap. I usually only use water.

I have medium grey on the transom and the walk through and even here in Texas, I haven't noticed it getting too hot to stand on.

I live in AZ and boat in the Phoenix area, never use shoes on the boat. The Seadek on my boat (titanium gray) is fine in the summer, the vinyl gets way hotter. I will say having a teak deck makes a huge improvement over fiberglass when it comes to temperature regardless of what you have on it.
