Ok so back in October I posted cracks in my older x-factor. Well I got with Malibu they said it was a warranty, so I get a new 2012 model. On December 21, 2012 I receive my new x-factor, mango. A few days later I'm really looking it over and I find 3 holes. Now how upset would you guys be. Boat is brand new never been in the water. So I guess after the holidays I will see what they say.
These are not holes from shipping but from manufacturing.

So I ask what do you guys think about That!???

Nothing new. Malibu has had some serious issues with customer service and quality control in the past. I noticed a very small hole in my first x-factor that I got brand new last summer. It didnt go all the way through the plastic and looked more like an air bubble that formed during the molding process. I filled it in with marine goop and have kept an eye on it. I have two xfactors now but based on what I've seen so far I doubt if I will buy another malibu yak.

If everyone quit crying about weight of the yaks and let them put some plastic back in them, plus a few other issues these things wouldn't happen.

Paper thin rips, cardboard takes alot more abuse. Food for thought

I have a 2005 X Factor and a newer Mini X. Haven't had any problems with cracks....Handles did bust on the Mini X though. This kinda talk about cracking makes me nervous although I did purchase a plastic welding kit just in case....hopefully I won't have to use for a long while.

Well, if they ever don't take care of you....

this guy has an alternative answer..

"Redneck repair...fixing a hole in a yak with a propane torch; five gallon bucket; and a chisel."
(Don't laugh..it worked)... Rich
