During this one-hour webinar, K&L Gates (www.klgates.com) Partner Julius "Sam" Hines discussed warranty issues that recreational dealers and manufacturers are currently facing. As recreational boats have become mass-marketed consumer products in the last few decades, manufacturers and dealers have seen a rise in warranty claims involving economic loss. This informative webinar addressed remedies to avoid these claims at each stage of the process and how to effectively enforce terms and limits.  Topics included:
• Supplier arrangements
• Dealer and distributor agreements
• MSO documents
• Merchantable goods
• Privity of contract
• Limited warranties
