Yours is-but mine's a Yamaha Origin motor and the paint finish on them isn't as hard or as shiny.I don't think they were even lacquered from new. The corners of the cowl are already showing a fair bit of wear after 2 years undercover.
Luckily I've finally managed to get the right paint to touch it up properly (the genuine Yam paint was discontinued last year) so next season it'll look like a new one again.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
