Yes! Your new Nelo has a 2 year factory warranty. See our warranty page for more info.
Yes, please ensure the boat is dry when stored in the cover. Leaving a boat in a wet cover, and leaving it in the sun, can cause osmotic blistering, which is not covered by the factory warranty.
We recommend always storing your boat in a cool, shady area. If you have to store it in the sun, we do sell UV covers, that will protect it from the sun’s damage.
Always rinse your boat with fresh water after use, especially in salt water, and wipe down with a chamois. Make sure to rinse the metal parts.
The safest way to car-top your boat is in slings, this allows the least amount of pressure to be placed on the boat. If you do not own slings, make sure you have good quality foam on your roof racks, never tie on too tightly, and the wider your roof racks apart on your roof, the better.
