Should I be able to get a broken ride plate insert covered under warranty?
The end of one of my ride plate inserts snapped off while pulling my plate. The boat is only 6 mo's old and I've always been careful not to overtorque the bolts. Also, I always dunk my ski & trailer in a freshwater lake after riding in the ocean so it shouldn't be a corrosion(wear & tear) issue. I called Riva to see if replacing the insert would be covered under warranty and was told no since I'm the one who removed the bolt...however, if they had broken it doing the same thing it would be covered. Does this sound right to you guys?

I would think its your dealers call IMO.If they will not cover it,just buy a replacement insert and do it yourself.Just make sure you glue it back down to seal it,3M4200/5200.

Thought we were talking GPR here. Heat gun, and wedge/chisel pry off the old one.Wear a resperator and be careful of the fumes.I have not removed inserts on a SHO so im not familiar with the amount of work involved.Same idea on a GPR though.

Thanks for the help Woody. They are the same type of inserts that the GPR uses.

I crawled back in the hull to see how much room I had to work and will be a bitch to do myself...It's a job for a skinny guy with long arms. Am still considering shelling out for the labor to save myself the headache if I can't get it done under warranty.
