    2015 VXR Paint Problem

    My 2015 VXR is a week old with 8 hours on the clock. Finish peeling off an area about the size of 3 quarters, located above the intake grate, 1" to 3" forward of the impeller housing. The substrate is white, indicating that the composite is exposed. Will this area suffer any degradation being exposed? From what I've read, Yamaha's handling of paint issues is bad enough to not bother with repairing, but I must admit this leaves a pretty bad taste in my mouth after spending a big wad of cash on a brand new ski. Called Yamaha, then sent pics to the dealer. From what I understand, most sub the work out to whoever they feel like, but Yamaha said I'm welcome to ask if we could agree on a shop. I'm going to have to decide whether to roll the dice at the risk of things snowballing into a worse problem. If I do file the claim, I'm inclined to wait til winter to have the work done. When I researched this machine, I got the impression Yamaha had given assurances that the waverunner paint issues were resolved with the 2014 models, but that's obviously not the case. Do they repaint the entire hull when they repair? Wonder if I'll be charged for prep work on any other minor incidental dings? Looking for feedback from those who have already weathered this storm.

    Did Yamaha cover the 2nd re-paint?

    Anyone have any input on hull degredation with a patch of the SMC laminate exposed?

    Yesterday I emailed pics to the GM of the dealer where I bought it. As of close of business today, I have heard nothing in reply.

    Try to have your dealer send it to Taylor Boats in Dickinson. They do warranty work for some of the yamaha dealers down south and also do nanohull repairs.

    Thanks, John. I'd searched for feedback on local hull repairs, but didn't come up with anything recent.
