oh man it could get ugly. it sounds like poor prep. the dealer should do something if they want to stay a dealer. how bad is it ? post a pic. if it is just at the tape edges it could be a very easy and cheap repair.

I seen some Richie Rich paint jobs on a couple of fountains at a dealer in the Keys. I was shocked to see he painted right over the rubrail and insert. Poor work in my opinion. Sorry to here of your problems. You are going to have a fight on your hands it seems.

Thats how Chris does business and has always done it. I had feeling that would happen. Chris always does whats right. Also I wonder what happened to Ritchie Rich???? He did a good job painting my Hustler.

It shouldn’t be the Fountains concern it is the dealers job to make right or get you in contact with the painter
fountain should be concerned if they have an unhappy customer on a new boat and the dealer isn't standing behind paintwork he had done on a NEW fountain prior to the sale! next thing you know it will end up in a public forum and fountain will look bad....oops it's already happened
