Re: Possible Weld Failure of the Wakeboard Tower Rear Supports
Dear Sea-Doo® Sport Boats Owner,
This Safety Recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Coast Guard and Transport Canada and is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the Federal Boat Safety Act and other applicable laws.
What is the reason for this notice?
Reference is made to the Safety Recall Notice that was previously sent to you by Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. and BRP US Inc. ("BRP") regarding this potential problem on certain Sea-Doo® 200 Speedster and 200 Speedster Wake of model year 2007/2008, and of the Speedster 200 and Speedster 200 Wake of model year 2004 to 2006 Sport Boats, that are equipped with a wakeboard tower. Our records indicate that you are the owner of a potentially affected vehicle.
What is the potential problem?
Cracks or breaks can develop in the welded joints of the tower attachment ends above the upper rear leg attachment points which, in rough water or towing conditions, can allow the tower to disengage from the rear legs. If this occurs, the tower could then fall onto the boat and its occupants, potentially resulting in serious injuries or death.
What should you do?
BRP has now established a solution to the potential problem. You must now contact an authorized BRP Sea-Doo dealer and make an appointment to have the wakeboard tower of your boat replaced or modified with a reinforcement brace. The dealer will perform this work at no charge to you.
What to do if you feel this notice is an error?
This notice was mailed to you according to the most current information we have available. If you no longer own this vehicle or some information in this notice is incorrect, please contact BRP at your earliest convenience.
