    New GP1800 SVHO top deck cracked

    2022 with 17hrs has cracked from the rub rail down to the footwell.
    Nothing has touched the ski and itís only been in calm water.Itís back at the dealer for assessment. Letís see how this pans out.

    Is this one crack or two separate cracks?

    How is this watercraft being stored?

    On a trailer, PWC lift or perhaps a drive-on PWC dock?

    Its stored on a pontoon with a roller system similar to a trailer. My 2018 GP has been on the system for 3 years with no issue.
    The weight of the ski is spread out over the rollers with at least 8 in contact with the hull.
    I think the deck was faulty when in was attached to the ski or something may have happened during shipping.

    If that happened without you physically hitting it on something the ski definitely has a factory defect. From what I see this above the rub rail, which I would not think how you store it would have any impact.

    Get that thing back to the dealer so they can file a warranty claim. I am sure it happens occasionally where the paint shrinks a little too much when drying or something.
