The present warranty is only valid to the original buyer. Proof of date of purchase is required for

Clearwater Design’s warranty is valid only if the product is used for its intended purposes and for

warranted against defects in workmanship and/or materials and suitable for its intended purpose.
This warranty does not cover: - kayaks or paddle boards used for rental or other commercial use;

Any return must be accompanied by an authorization number obtained by your dealer and which
can only be issued by calling Yanes’s Customer Service Department (Distributer for Clearwater Design) between 9 am and 5 pm
Eastern Standard Time at 1-800-663-7770. The return of any Clearwater Design kayak or paddle board will
not be accepted by Yanes Canada without this authorization number.
Yanes polyethylene boats have tiny pores that can trap grime. You should clean your hull a couple
of times each season and before putting your boat up for seasonal storage. We recommend soft
dishwashing soap for best results. Car wax can also be used to protect the hull’s surface.
Store your boat on it’s side and away from direct sunlight. It is also acceptable to store it upside down to avoid filling it with leaves and/or precipitations. Never hang your boat or store it on sawhorses. ( Exception: Canoes should only be stored upside down and never on their side)
If you have been using it in salt water, be sure to rinse the boat out thoroughly.
Your kayak or paddle board is built of superior materials and in accordance to stringent quality
standards. With adequate maintenance, it will give you years of reliable use. But as with most
products, it is subject to wear and tear. If you eventually need replacement parts, technical
assistance or product/service information, please contact (Clearwater Design's distributer) Yanes Customer Service Department,
having ready at hand the product’s model name and serial number (beginning with YPT …), as well
as the date and place of purchase. You can reach us at (800) 663-7770 or firstname.lastname@example.org
