    • For Boats & Kayaks Purchased 2020 & After: The warranty lasts for five (5) years from the original date of purchase of the Jackson product from an authorized dealer (unless the Jackson product was sold as a “demo”, or if you are not the original owner, in which case the warranty period begins when the boat is first shipped from Jackson).

If your product is deemed defective, and to be replaced under warranty we ask that you decommission the product by drilling a minimum of 10 half inch sized holes in the bottom down the length of the hull/cooler/kennel and send the picture in to warranty@jacksonkayak.com. This is only for liability purposes and to ensure the safety of all future Jackson product owners. Once we receive conformation that your product has been destroyed your replacement will ship out.
