Maybe this has been answered, but we'll see. So, here's the dilema....I live in a far remote area, where there are no kayak dealers of any value (just generic stuff). With the warranty issues on Hobie, do they pay for shipment? For instance, if I were to buy a PA or Revo, or whatever; and the hull was damaged, would I have to pay to ship it to a dealer and if so, would I be re-imbursed?
Another reason I ask this question is due to some of the modifications which people add that could inevitably void the warranty (PA sliding seat for instance). And as I remember the video on repairing a dented hull, I tend to wonder if the same process could not be used for other benefits...such as this whole scupper transducer idea. I mean in all aspects, all you're doing is making a dent
Anyone think this is possible? to heat the area around a scupper hole, and press the transducer into the keel to make an indentation or molded scupper mount?
Anything you do to a kayak, or any item for that matter, could void the warranty. If you put a new intake system on a car, you void the warranty, etc. So, just wondering if anyone has tried it, or think it's possible? Especially if you reenforced the scupper on the inside afterwards....I know I saw one picture somewhere where the person mounted it through the scupper, but it wasn't embeded in the boat.
