    Paint Peeling off 14 FZR After Only 2 Hours

    Got this ski last Friday, have only taken it for 2-3 rides and it has 2.0 hours. Never beached and only taken on/off trailer 3 times. Was looking ski over on trailer and paint is peeling off hull in several places! No signs of any impacts whatsoever, it is just sheeting off on both sides in several areas. I knew this was a risk buying a 2014 but it's not a nice 1st introduction to Yamaha from a former SeaDoo owner.

    Sounds like many of you have had this same issue? I'm not going to freak out about it—it's only a ski—but I will fully expect Yamaha to make this right. Will be calling my local dealer first thing tomorrow morning. Otherwise I'm loving the ski so far.

    Don't worry about, the only thing that's gonna happen if they try and fix it is fuck it up worse,
    its not even noticeable anyway

    If it all comes off you will have a flat black hull.

    I'm going on the second season with almost 80hrs on my machine and no signs of any paint or clear issues. Slight scuffs from where it slides on the bunks but nothing else. Now, I am anal with my ski and always push it on the trailer, never ride it on, wash/wax after every ride, etc. I have beached it but only a handful of times and very carefully. Was it only certain units that were affected maybe? I have to check the production date on mine, but I know the dealer had it for at least 5 months before I bought it which was in May 2014.

    Maybe we got lucky here in Canada since I've never heard of anyone here having the issue on their 14s. I wonder if salt water riding has anything to do with it as well.
