Nautic Star deck and fiberglass issue
I have a 2014 Nautic Star 1900XS that I purchased new. For the most part it has been a pretty good boat and has about 260 hrs. Recently a quarter size hole in the deck cracked open near a deck plate when I walked on it. It was obviously a result of an air void under the decking finish layer from the manufacturing process. This boat also developed a significant separation in the fiberglass near the battery well.
I submitted these issues to Nautic Star for consideration for warranty repair under the lifetime hull warranty. The claim was denied as these items are not covered. Not a terribly big deal as these are not structural issues but it will prevent me from considering this brand when I upgrade. Anyone else experience issues like this?
