Additional Notes

Complaint: The Kayak Fasttrack 385 ft, has a manufacture defect, it is leaking from the seams (not a hole on the side), and the glue is detaching. I contacted the customer service they were very prompt, and asked for the serial number or sales receipt, then we found out that it is out of warranty. So I went ahead and asked them for technical help on how to fix it, and they never replied.

Desired Settlement: I think it's a major manufacture defect and the boat has to be replaced even after the warranty expires.

Business Response: *** ******,
My sincerest apologies regarding a tardy reply to your messages, please no that it was not intentional. I have included a response from one of our managers regarding the replacement process regarding your Sea Eagle Boat. Please feel free to call us directly with any questions or concerns you may have.

'Dear ****,

I apologize for the delay in answering your email. I looked up your order using the hull id number you provided and unfortunately this is no longer under warranty. Our products come with a 3 year warranty and you purchased this in October 2010.  I can offer you a discount price on a new hull if you are interested.  The cost would be $475 plus shipping, duty and taxes if you want it shipped to Egypt. 

Thank you and have a great day,

Dear ******* ******
No, Unfortunately, the dispute is not resolved, I replied to their last email, asking them on technical help on how to solve my problem and attached, photos and videos showing the problem, but they never replied.

Honestly I can't believe their level of unprofessionalism when it comes to handling their customer service.
I really don't know what to do.
I hope you can help me resolving this problem.

Thank you
Attached is a copy of my reply:

Hi *******,

Thank you for the offer, unfortunately i can not buy another one, knowing that the same deffect might happen again.

I already chated with ******* and I know that warranty is over. Please note that this is a manufacture defect since it's leaking from the seams with no trace of any wholes.

Please forward the videos to the technical department and explain to them the nature of the problem and let me know how to fix it, or provide me with a new one free of charge for the sake of your brand reputation.

It's leaking behind the logo patch along the seams, from both sides. they need to see this and provide me with a technical solution and an explanation why it happened.

Thank you and will be waiting for your reply.

**** ****** 

Business Response: *** ******,

The replacement price of $475 (does not include shipping, duties or taxes if shipped outside of the contiguous 48 United States) would also include a 3 year warranty against any defect.

Alternatively we would be willing to repair your kayak free of charge and only ask that you pay the shipping cost to and from our facility.

Please note that ******* is currently out of the office as she is representing us at the Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City, Utah and has limited access to her office account.

Should you have any questions or concerns I request that you please contact me directly either via e-mail ******************) or telephone, ###-###-#### and I will be happy to assist you.
