  safety is my concern too

…and now you guys are scaring me! Thanks :)
I know, I have to fix it. I just honestly don't feel like going through a return, exchange, take the boat back and forth etc. I know, I'll do it if I have to, but after I already had a botched order that had me wait for a boat for 2 weeks and it never came, I just want to go on the damn water!
I will ask them to get me the tightest covers they can find in their factory, and see if that fixes it. If there is indeed a moulding issue, I will have to return it, because I won't know what else could be wrong… Now, what makes me a bit worried here is that there is a video review of an inuit out on the web - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCfZD-K4imw -and if you watch it, the guy seems to snap the covers off with a finger, very easily. Any other inuit owners out there (either the Native or the LL incarnations) know if this might just be a systematic problem? If this is the case, those videos of the inuit in the Lava falls and the other WW play ones have to be fake :)
Also, will a trip to home depot potentially help? Are there gaskets I can just add to the system, and fix it myself?
Thanks again
