“I thought that I would let everyone know that Sea Hawk paints honored our warranty claim. In fact, we did not have any problems what-so-ever with the claim process. Both Denis and Cheryl at Sea Hawk where good to deal with and professional in every respect. All I had to do was submit my receipts showing the purchase of the paint, the invoice for the paint application, as well as some photos showing the premature ablating. It is nice to see a company stand behind its product.

We are back on the water!  Thanks again!”
