  My new WS Zephyr
  Posted by: on Sep-28-12 8:36 AM (EST)

had a fairly pronounced flat spot just ahead of the seat that took out all the V from the hull. I didn't notice it when I picked the boat up,(I was more concerned about good fitting hatches). I cut a "form" from an old piece of plywood that wedged under the coming and ran a strap around the whole mess. I put it on whenever storing it for a week and it went away.

Since you've contacted your dealer and he's willing to work with you, I think I'd give the hatches a good water test, look everything over real good and see if the flat spots will go away. WS quality control can be poor, so you may be better off dealing with the boat you have.

Best of luck,
