Fuck Waylen bay for this and I'll go elsewhere to buy boats. In my lifetime I've spent $300k on boats and I plan to spend more. So they lost a lot of potential future business for this.
Maybe you should share your frustrations with the manufacturer.

Manufacturers often give you ridiculous times for repairs on top of a discounted rate. They also want to supply the parts or expect you to take a minimal markup from your parts inventory. As mentioned above the dealer has to wait a long time to be paid for their warranty work. This forces the dealer to dip into their own pocket to pay their employees and the parts tab until they’re paid for the job.

If you don’t believe these issues with the manufacturers are forcing them to implement these policies just ask them yourself.
