Severne redline broken mast - warranty/aftersale problems
To Starboard team,

I'm a big fan of your products, I'm riding a Futura 133, ordered a gator & NCX (awaiting the shipment in mid Oct) and impressed by the quality of it.

However, I'm a lil bit disappointed about the way you handle claims.

I purchased the severne 100% 460 mast in Sep 2006. the mast was broken in May this year and I've filed a claim to my local distributor.

after 5 months, despite I've been checking with my local distributor in HKG, they told me that no reply from severne so far, and nothing they could do about it. last week, I checked again with my local distributor. again, regrettably, no reply at all from severne. they suggest me to contact you directly.

I'm not intending to accuse any party here. all I'd like to have is a reply that whether this claim is accepted, or not.

if not, I'll have to order a new mast for my new sails which is coming in a few weeks. it may take weeks for the leadtime and I really wanna make it clear asap. should I wait for the replacement or get a new mast??????

your prompt reply is highly appreciated.....

Hi Ian,

sorry to push you but my sails has arrived this week. monsoon wind is picking up here and I don't really have time to wait further. I could resend those pics if it's necessary, I really hope you could give me some quick reply. looking forward to hear from you.

in case you want to contact me in private, please contact me at

Hi Hubert,

This matter is definitely passed and discussed with Severne crew directly following my last message 9 Oct, it was discussed and further replied to me to confirm that.
Please let me follow up again.

Thanks (again) for your patience.

Cheers ~ Ian

Hi Ian,

another week has gone and I'm still stuck here. any updates?

Hi Hubert,

There are at least 2 seperate emails I know about sent directly to you (your Hotmail address) by Tina who is Severne Marketing and Customer Service manager, and I know is well aware and acting to try and resolve this. But she does need warranty information to proceed , and that is what she requests in her meail.

Right now, this instant, I'm forwarding you the text of the emails and the details of her message to you in your Private Message folder here on the Forum, as a backup in case for some reason your email is rejecting etc.

So please be aware, we've been trying since above first complaint to get this resolved for you as smoothly as possible, but warranty details must be supplied.

Thanks and Cheers ~ Ian

Hi Ian,

thanks for your help. sorry for the belated reply coz' I was out for biz trip.

I got the msg from Tina about the warranty information. to be frank, I don't know exactly what kind of information you'd like to have, I'll check up my mast no. and get back to Tina after I go to the beach this weekend. thanks for your help, Ian. I hope we could clarify this asap.
