At any time within five years of the demonstrated date of purchase, Schaefer Marine, Inc. will remedy any factory defect in material or workmanship (at no charge to the original purchaser) if the product is returned to Schaefer Marine, Inc. The buyer shall be responsible for shipping and insurance charges, if any, on the products returned for repair under the terms of this warranty.

Return of defective products must be accompanied by a letter giving name, address, proof of purchase, type of boat, and description of malfunction of the gear. This warranty extends only to defects in material or workmanship of products in normal use. It does not extend to damage caused by accident or abuse, or to any consequential or incidental losses or damages arising from the products or their use. There are no other warranties, including that of merchantability, expressed or implied, other than those set forth herein which extend beyond the period of this warranty. This warranty is in lieu of all other implied, express and statutory guarantees, and in no event shall Schaefer Marine, Inc. be liable for special, incidental or consequential damages. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, nor the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
