    Angry I think the dealer broke my sponson before delivery, what should I do?

    So I got my 310x on 8/19 and I've put it in the water exactly 3 times. I have not hit anything, followed proper break-in, fully flushing engine/intercooler, washing it, fogging the SC, etc... I've treated it like a child since it's not exactly a small purchase for me. I was installing some trailer guides on my trailer to make it easier to see the trailer when the ski is not on it (retrieving at the launch). It has not floated around, bottomed out been otherwise mishandled. When I was laying on the ground getting some of the trailer guide bolts in, I looked up as saw the starboard sponson. I did not notice it standing up. I was wracking my brain how a hole could have been put in the sponson right on the front and I didn't notice hitting anything. And then it occured to me, this seems more like damage that would occur if the sponson rolled and hit pavement. I am 99% certain this happened at the dealer before I took delivery and nobody noticed.

    So, how should I proceed here? Will the dealer tell me to f**k off? Has anyone else experienced this? Should I just buy a new sponson and be done with it?

    That's kinda what I figured. I can just buy a new one for $53. Any chance you'd know how I find the torque settings for those bolts?

    That's what I would do....

    You might need it down the road......
