12 Year Warranty?


I'm not really sure but I think our boat must have come with a 12 year warranty... We passed that anniversary recently and one thing after another has been going. Before long we will have a whole new boat!

The most recent item to bite the dust was our ice maker. Yes, I know we could use the little trays or buy a bag but having ice at the ready for a cold drink on a hot day is really more than a luxury. I think it's pretty much a necessity.

Besides the crew loves ice. Dee Dee comes running from wherever she is at just the sound of tinkling ice. We've even had to break up a tussle when a cube dropped near both of them.

So we looked up the part number and put another order into Defender. It had to be delivered by freight but we struggled it onboard. Jeff had already removed the old one so it was a pretty simple job to just slide in the new one.


The kids were fascinated and helped through the whole process. Shortly after completing the installation we began to hear the lovely sound of ice hitting the bin. By evening it was an ice cube orgy. The kids were crunching them, we were making Dark n Stormie's. Life was good because when the crew is happy everyone is happy!
