Surprised I have to make this post, but I'd like to calibrate my response before I call back Sailfish in Florida - Some of you familiar with me may remember that I'm putting some real TLC back into my boat which apparently for years was fished hard and put away wet... Doing minor mechanical repairs, vinyl repairs, a hard compound and polish on the topsides last year and this spring I'm taking on the deep blue (and heavily oxidized) hull. The "SAILFISH" lettering and logo are chipped and pitted, so I thought now is a good time to remove the old ones - it'll make work with the orbital buffer easier, and replace them. I called and ordered from the factory.
They arrived - shipped in a box (too big) with alignment tape (that's good), but they had crumpled in shipment and come off the alignment tape - on both sides, meaning the adhesive backing on the lettering was compromised. But that's not the worst of it.
The items are pitted, almost as bad as my 9-year old emblems on the boat!?? I'm stunned and very concerned about *anything* I could get from the factory now (this is my first purchase).
Some pic's attached - what do you think? I mean, I *have* to return these, but where do I go after that?
Finally following up - It didn't take this long, I just forgot about my post. They were good about it. I backed off on the lettering - it was OK, just took a little care to make sure they were aligned. And they sent me two new Sailfish logos without requesting the originals back. So now I have one each for my shop and my toolbox!
fishnfool: Hi Bob, welcome and congrats. Posting up top in the forums will get more visibility. I lived in Seminole as a kid when my dad was stationed at MacDill. Good memories of pier and beach fishing.
