Limited Lifetime Warranty:

This warranty supersedes any and all previously published warranty documents published by Bosun Supplies, Inc.

In addition, most Bo'sun Supplies Inc.. items carry the manufacturer's limited LIFETIME WARRANTY (Please see exceptions below*):

Bo'sun Supplies Inc. warrants its stock stainless steel products to be free of defects in material and workmanship under normal use and with normal maintenance for the lifetime of the product. This Limited Warranty extends only to the original retail purchaser and does not run to any subsequent purchaser. 

If the product fails within the terms of this warranty, we will repair or replace the product at Bosun Supplies option, provided the product has been given reasonable care, has not been used for commercial service, and the damage has not resulted from improper installation, accident, negligence or misuse or from unauthorized alterations by the purchaser.

All claims must be made to Bo'sun Supplies Inc.  within thirty (30) days after discovery of the defect. Details on the defect and how the product was used, together with proof of purchase must be included with the defective product, and send to Bo'sun Supplies Inc. prepaid and insured.  No warranty settlement shall be provided until return and inspection of the defective part. 


This warranty set forth is in lieu of all other warranties, whether expressed or implied. Bo'sun Supplies Inc. disclaims any warranty whether expressed or implied, with regard to the products sold by it or any dealer, including any implied warranty of merchantability beyond the scope of the warranty set forth above, and except as may otherwise be prohibited by applicable law. 

* Product Lifetime Conditions; Product lifetime of stainless steel material is largely effected by environmental conditions and maintenance. When Stainless Steel is subjected to continuous submersion or continuous exposure to harsh chemicals such as acids the lifetime will be substantially decreased and require routine replacement to maintain a safe application. Stainless Steel Products do require maintenance and lack of proper maintenance may cause a denial of warranty claims.

*Warranty Exceptions:

All items beginning with the letters "NT-" are subject to a $35 repair fee for any item purchased longer than 12 months ago.

All items beginning with the letter "L" are subject to manufacturer warranty only.
