Hey folks, new to this site. I recently purchased an FX SHO Cruiser with the extended warranty. According to what I have heard and read in the manual, Yamaha has a service schedule (i.e. 10,50, 100 hour maintenance) that needs to be complied with in order to take full advantage of the warranty should something happen. My question is the following: does the ski have to be serviced by a Yamaha dealer or could it be serviced by an independent contractor and what qualifications would that contractor need to have in order to fulfill any requirements by Yamaha?

Thank you in advance.
