In my stern under seat storage areas near the drain holes I have stress cracks and fiberglass damage from where the hull and deck meet...directly underneath the drain hole.
Took the boat into the dealer, they lethargically took photos and submitted to BRP.
I had noticied, while trying to assess the damage, that in between the deck and hull where they meet under the drain plug that there are caulking like substance and a wire mesh forming pads. You can easily see them if you duck your head down in the ski locker. Well I noticed that one pad is like a pancake and misformed and the other is about 2 inches thick and very bisquit like.
Has anyone else discovered that their pads separating their deck and hull are misformed and causing cracking in the storage under the bow seats?
I am hoping BRP will make good on this but my dealer is not as passionate as one of the other dealers I read about...they are one of the largest in Los Angeles, but just being very pationate about my boat.
BRP already declined one Warranty request because the dealer did not adequately explain what I just explained, they only sent photos of the damage not photos of the improperly formed pads that caused the damage. BRP said the only way this damage could occur would be to be jumped over waves or having heavy items in these compartments. These compartments have held ski ropes, and bumpers. I have not even done a successful 360 yet, jump waves, are you kidding me?!!!
Does anyone else notice this problem with a speedster 200 2004?
I love the boat but if it is not covered by Warranty it will be a B.O.A.T. you know...(bust out another thousand!!)
Reading how BRP handled other situations on this board, I hope they will make good on this one. My dealer is just needing lots of motivation.
I attached a photo, it is in a shadow, but it shows the fiberglass damage and if you look close it shows they surrounding spider cracks.
