Faulty Honwave unglueing!!!! after 2 hours

HI all, i have not been active on here much as i have been busy else ware however i took my honwave out for the second time and it has started to come unglued, has anybody else suffered this issue with there honwave?






But on a positive note the Dealler Gillingham Marina has been more than helpful to assist with the warranty and i am really pleased i brought from there



This is a T38, just to let people know.

Doesn’t look like there is any glue on those bits to me?

I haven't noticed anything similar on my T38 which is about 3yrs old. I'm slightly ashamed to say it doesn't get a great deal of TLC either, but so far so good.
I've just changed from trailering to inflating/deflating, rolling up & bagging and I half expect this constant 'folding' and unfolding of the seams to throw up some gradual failings in the not too distant future.
Good news that the dealer is looking after you though

There have always been a high level of Honwave owners on the forum and I only remember one faulty new one being mentioned. The dealer dealt with that to the guy's satisfaction.

A nuisance but these things do happen. I once had a brand new Zodiac (at about 50% more cost than the Honwave) faulty... then its replacement was faulty too... and my current Aerotec was supplied with a faulty new floor that was replaced.

Hey all, quick update.


I contacted Gillingham Marina on Sunday with pictures via email, they sent the pictures off to Honda on the Monday who authorized a replacement the same day. My new T38 was shipped on Monday and arrived at the Dealers on the Thursday.
I now own a brand new unused Honwave t38, which i collected today from the dealer.

Its not been checked as of yet, but i will inflate it and check it today when i have time.

I can honestly say that Honwave are a wise investment in regards to warranty, the extra cost of the purchase is justified by the sellers support and the no issue in replacement.

If anybody reads this thread and wonders about support then i can assure you all Honda will not let you down, they sent a new boat ( after i sent them pictures) before they even had my boat back!!





Very very good service Honda + Gillingham Marina 5*




Regards.

Fantastic news. Great to hear of dealers and manufacturers who still care enough about their products and reputation to look after customers like this.

Good news Synchro... these things do happen and if properly resolved still give confidence in the product (as with me and Zodiac/Bombard).

Yours is a cracking boat Ali as you say needs to have more options on colours.
