Our records indicate that you have purchased either a Fish Pro personal watercraft with the cooler or the accessory LinQ cooler (P/N 269800817).
Which models are involved?

What is the potential problem?
The cooler latch can automatically lock when the lid closes, allowing a person to become locked inside, posing entrapment and suffocation hazards.

What should you do?
Go to an authorized Sea-Doo dealership with this letter and the cooler to have it updated. The parts to provide the remedy to this condition should be available on July 22nd, 2019. For administrative reasons, BRP is asking you to bring this letter at the dealership.
In the meantime, consumers should immediately put the coolers out of the reach of children.
What to do if you feel this notice is an error?
This notice was mailed to you according to the most current information we have available. If any information in this notice is incorrect, please contact BRP at your earliest convenience.
