Pontoon Deck Seam Tape
(50' roll) Seals the underside of your decking where two sheets meet.
Cut into 8' sections and place on top of the aluminum cross channels where your two pieces of decking meet. If you do not seal the underside of your deck seams water will work it's way up onto your deck and ruin the bond between carpet and glue.
- Prevents water from working its way between the joints on your floor and ruining your carpet.
- Seals the joints on your pontoon flooring where two sheets of plywood join together.
- 50' roll is enough for any pontoon boat.

We are replacing the carpet on our pontoon, but not the decking. How do we use the deck seam tape?
The Deck Seam tape can be used between the cross members and plywood decking.
Ok, just so I'm reading this right. You put this tape, on the TOP of the decking, covering only the seams. So if I'm standing on the pontoon and looking down at the newly screwed in decking, I put this tape, OVER the top of the seams, then put on my new vinyl floor? Is that correct?
This Deck Seam Tape goes underneath the decking on the Aluminum Cross Members. Cut into 8' sections and place on top of the aluminum cross channels where your two pieces of decking meet. If you do not seal the underside of your deck seams water will work it's way up onto your deck and ruin the bond between carpet and glue.
My cross members are "C" channels, therefore I cannot lay this tape on the underside of the decking seams. So, I mashed it between the decking seams. I plan to run a thin bead of roofing sealant on each of the seams as well. Finally, I'm laying vinyl not carpet. Do you think that will suffice?
I would use the minimal amount of sealant, if you are using our adhesive it will not adhere in that spot since it is water based.
Is you tape adhesive water proof and will it hold up with time or do I need to replace it every so often
This should last just as long if not longer than the flooring that you use.
Can this deck seam tape be used as a double-stick tape to securely replace the vinyl rub rail around the outside of the pontoon deck?
Our seam tape is far to thick to work well for that application. It's basically tar tape so it works great on the seams of the boat but it's going to make a big mess on your rub rail and will be plyable so it's not a good option.
If I am using this at the deck seams, when I screw down the deck to the non-seam supports, wouldn't the deck not be level since the tape is only under the seams and not under the deck at the non-seam supports?
This will not create a noticable affect on your pontoon deck. The deck seam tape will compresse when the deck is laid down and secured. Some customer will order an extra roll of deck seam tape to do all cross members of their pontoon boat but this is not required.
This Pontoon Deck Seam Tape is 2" Wide. It also come sin a 50 foot roll.
We are removing our carpet off of our pontoon and Appling vinyl flooring . Would it be a good idea to put this tape on topside of decking before We install the new flooring? Is it to thick or do justice on topside does only need to be applied on bottom of decking ? Thanks
We believe that the Pontoon Vinyl Flooring is thick enough to cover any Deck Seam Tape and make it so you cannot tell it is being used.
should u put this on top of new wood to prevent water between joint of the plywood
You will want to place this underneath where the 2 pieces of Decking meet. This will keep the water from getting inbetween, also it will not give you a "Seam" look under your carpet or vinyl.
