Never Grab a Gator

By Vito Mariano, Basecrete Tech LLC

Now that we have your attention -- there's a new alligator in town at the Mote Marine in Sarasota, Florida. Everyone knows, you can't reason with a gator. But that doesn't mean it shouldn't have a nice habitat to stomp around in, nosh on some tasty alligator food (we can't discuss what that is here), and call the place his own. When the good people and volunteers at Mote Marine called Basecrete to buy our all-in-one waterproofing and bondcoat, we said 'Oh, nay, nay!' We will donate our eco-friendly product to help out Mote Marine because we love Mote Marine's philosophy.

"We are guardians of the sea and all living things that depend upon it."​

Mote Marine is an independent marine research and education facility made up of world-class scientists. Everyone at Mote Marine is passionate about conservation and sustainable use of the oceans. With small town Florida beginnings, they started in a small shed to become a stellar institution that is driven by research and education. Mote Marine also takes care of sick and rescued sea life. They depend on donations and volunteers to carry on their important mission. We are proud and humbled to be a part of this greater work.

And we had fun showing the volunteers how to apply Basecrete; hit the link and see what we mean, Volunteering for the Gator Good. It was easy, because the volunteers were terrific and Basecrete is easy to mix and apply.

Basecrete is always job site ready and when it's milkshake thick, it's good to go. Seeing is believing, see for yourself with this 14 second clip; yep, 14 seconds because we also know that time is money, especially on a job site. We have a short cure time to help along that time is money thing. Milkshake Thick.

We're counting down to seeing the alligator exhibit being completed and inhabited. There are three pens that were waterproofed with Basecrete. Natural forms and plantings will give the gator a great place to stomp, and the waterproofed enclosure will be used to teach Mote Marine visitors all about alligators.

And on another really cool note, Mote Marine is putting the Basecrete name in the alligator exhibit as a thank you to us. But it's Mote Marine that deserves a big thank you for their dedication to saving our sea creatures and oceans.
