    I had the same problem with my 2 2014 vx cruisers. Both covered under warranty and repainted by Yamaha or local paint shop. I bought my 2 skis at jet ski of Miami. the first one peeled about the same time as yours 10 hrs. the second started around 15 hrs. the first took about 2 weeks to repaint. The second one unfortunately took almost 2 months to get my ski back from them. Very disappointed in that turn around time. As I see and was told by them, the 2014 have paint problems and covered by Yamaha.

    Thanks you guys for the info and trying to put my mind at ease!! I'm still totally freaking out but not as bad as yesterday. What find of paint is it ? Some sort of plastic bonding stuff ? My whole driveway, where I wash it down, is covered in black plastic type flakes. Does the re-paint actually work ??

    Mine did the same thing. Dealer covered it under warranty. No worries.

    Just got mine back here in Oz... Yamaha are covering the work, standing by their product. 16 hours work each side according to mechanic who did the work, plus subcontract to well regarded painter who did it, plus special jig to hold ski and rotate plus/minus 90 degrees. Expensive! Looks good though, further report when I have time...

    ps Gunwhales, all fittings off, pump etc out for total hull repaint. Engine NOT out, not reqd, didn't even need to defuel...

    2014 FX Cruiser HO with peeling hull paint. Had the WR for 2 months. There are other smaller locations where the paint has peeled off.
