Dent in Seadek

OscawanaSkierOscawanaSkier Posts: 70 Baller
We’ve had a few cold mornings in last week, so put the acrylic bow panel in to block the wind. But the Seadek on the floor of my TXI now has a “dent” where the panel pushed down against it.

Anyone have experience with this type of problem? Will it self-heal over time, or is there a way to help it along?

    Yup~!
    Use a heat gun. Keep it moving at all times....

    For future use, could you put a little foam pad on the corners of the acrylic so it would rest on the fiberglass edges and be held off the floor?

    Spot on @Brewski!

    We skied all last weekend with the panel in, then covered the boat for the week. Uncovered it this morning to find the “dent” still there (bummed and surprised). But after a mostly sunny day, heating up that Seadek panel, the dent is now almost gone. Heat seems to do the trick.

    I’m continually amazed with the resiliency of Seadek!

    Seadek is maybe a 5 year material before it all starts looking like hell, I wouldn't get too worked up about little marks.
