Warranty question

Question for the main dealers out there

Engine is less than 1 year old.

If it has been partially submerged for a very short period , recovered, inhibited and run back up to a standard for it to be considered ready to use again will it still be covered under the remainder of it's warranty ?

I'm not sure if the work went through as a warranty repair, insurance claim etc yet. Something I'm looking into.

Would it still be covered for other non-related faults etc ?

Cheers

I asked a similar question about a Merc a few years ago, and was told if the "recovered, inhibited and run back up to a standard for it to be considered ready to use" was carried out by an authorised dealer, then the remainder of the warranty would be valid.

I suspect that they would wriggle though.

How would they know? Unless, of course, it wasn't quite as 'ready to use again' as it could be.

Because I'm assuming it would all be logged onto the warranty info of that engine. I'm not sure how that side of things work as we are not a main dealer for new engine sales.

Perhaps somebody in the know could advise

1. partially - in part; in some degree; not wholly

I think it's when the wrong end of the motor gets wet!

As in it did not sink. I've decided to leave it. Shame as it was a bargain at 1800 with a 14ft boat/trailer package.

i used to do some warranty claims when i worked at the merc/mar distributer, if you dont tell them it has been emersed how are they to know ? but we used to guess from the problems that arose in the future, and nine times out of ten we were correct but no way of proving anything
