Speedster 200 concerns

I'm looking at buying a 2004 Speedster 200 with just under 40 hrs on it. I'm a little concerned after reading the thread about the hull problems. Have many of these boats had this same problem? If something like this is not visable now and shows up a few months after I buy it, will SeaDoo cover the cost of the repairs or am I on my own? I'd hate to drop 20k on a boat only to have hull problems a couple months down the road. Thanks.
I was the one with the problems with the hull on my Speedster. The Speedster 200 is a very fun boat and the engines are absolutely awesome. After the experience I had that those engines kept running even completely submerged in salt water to the top, I can defenitely say they are reliable. As far as the hull goes I am not sure if my situation is just an isolated incident. I have read on other website forums of several people that do have spider cracks on their hulls. Just check the bottom of the hull and make sure it is hard and check for visible cracks. Definitely check the floor compartment and lift the rubber matting to check underneath it. I am just very displeased with BRP's customer service regarding my issue as it has been over 3 weeks and my boat is still sitting at the dealer with no signs of being shipped off to BRP any time soon.

Do all the SeaDoo's come with a 5 year hull warranty? If I buy a used 2004 S200 and something like this happens, will I be covered under warranty? If so, do I have to do anything to transfer the warranty when I buy it?
Based on the photos we saw the hull problems with Sto's boat were definately NOT cosmetic. The 5 year hull warranty would certainly cover any occurance such as that. I can honestly say we have not had any Speedsters or Wakes with any hull problems from the factory other than blemishes due to poor shrink wrap installation. The only damage we have seen is blistering due to leaving an unpainted boat in the water year round. Any boat would do that!
