OWNER'S RESPONSIBILITY:

Purchasers are to take the following steps in pursuing a warranty claim:

  1. Fill out and return, within ten days after the delivery, the attached Warranty Registration Card.

  2. The Owner's Instructions, as well as any instructions furnished with any accessories installed on the boat, shall be placed in a large envelope and remain aboard the boat. Purchasers should make special effort to make sure that this literature is delivered to them by the dealer or MacGregor Yacht Corporation. Careful attention to these instructions will add many years to the life of the boat and equipment.

  3. It is understood that all matters of service are handled with the selling dealer. Purchaser should notify his selling dealer regarding any problems under the warranty.

  4. The dealer shall be given an opportunity to supply parts needed for all repairs for which a claim is to be made.

  5. The purchaser agrees to use the boat in a reasonable and safe manner. It is necessary for the owner or operator to use extreme caution when operating the boat in severe weather, when operating the boat, trailering, or raising and lowering the mast near power lines or sources of electrical power (contact between a power line and the mast or rigging could cause injury or death), and when preparing the boat for trailering.

  6. The purchaser must use care to assure that the boat is not sailed unless the ballast tank is completely full and the valve is closed and sealed.

  7. The purchaser must familiarize himself with all information contained in the Owner's Instructions, particularly warnings contained in pages 1 and 2.
