Gel coat coming off 08 SHO
Just bought 08 3 weeks ago got 5 hours on it and noiticed that there are bubbles poping just in front of intake grate. Took it back to dealer and all they want to do is fix it. They called yamaha and thats all they want to do also. I said I want new one. If I wanted fixed ride I would have bought demo. Anyone having this problem? Or anyone know of a Yamaha rep that will help me get new? Thanks Mike

Same thing happened to me on my sho. Same area too. Just got it back last friday. I had a terrible ordeal with the dealer. I too contacted Yamaha and since there was no HULL damage it was only paint chipping off all they were going to do was repair it. After dealing with the Idots at the dealer i ended up picking up my ski and taking it to a PROPER boat repair place to have it fixed. Its back now and looks good. Im keeping my eye on it tho.

Is the SHO paint or gelcoat. Since it's basically a SMC formulation, in a press mold, I'd assume it is paint.

The SHO and ALL newer Yamahas have have Paint not gellcoat. I work at a watercraft Dealer and almost all the Yamaha's have little bubbles in the paint in the foot wells if water sits in them long. So I am not suprised your paint is pealing especialy if its left in the water long.
