All manufacturers, over time, supersede old parts for new ones. A supersede represents a new generation of the same product, and in some cases may simply represent a change in the manufacturer's source. Supersedes sometimes improve the quality of the part. All superseded parts are in accordance with the specifications of the original and in most cases are backward and forward compatible. Note: supersedes are NOT substitutes or replacements. Supersedes are equivalent in fit and function to the original part number, and are manufactured by the original manufacturer of your equipment - even if there may be some minor differences in detail. We have no control over a manufacturer's decision to supersede a part. Please note, in most cases if a superseded part is offered it is because the original part has been discontinued and is no longer available. If you do not want a superseded part or have any questions about availability, please notify us by email or by phone at the time of your order.
Please note there may be orders that we are unable to process and must cancel. We may refuse or cancel any order and reserve this right solely at our discretion. These are some of the situations that may result in the cancellation of your order: limited quantities; inaccuracies in pricing or errors in the listed information; problems with your credit card acceptance; prolonged backorders by the manufacturer. Please note that we may require additional information before processing any order. We will contact you via email if any portion of your order has been canceled or if we need additional information to process the order. If your credit card has been charged and the order is canceled due to discontinuation or lack of availability of a part, we will credit the amount charged. While we do stock millions of parts in our warehouse, we may not have every part we sell in stock. Most orders will not take three days, but we ask that you please allow three (3) business days for your order to be processed before shipping. On occasion, an order with one or more out of stock parts may take more than three days to process. You will receive an email confirmation when the order is ready to be packed and shipped with the actual shipping date.
We are not responsible for incorrect ordering of items due to the listing of incorrect information.
Limitation of Liability
Order Canceling and Exchanges - Applies to Parts Only
We understand certain situations may arise where an order or part of an order may need to be canceled. Boats.net works extremely hard to fulfill orders in the shortest amount of time possible. Therefore, we ask that you notify us of your cancellation request as soon as possible by email or phone to avoid a restocking fee email firstname.lastname@example.org.. Once the order enters the shipping process the order is subject to restocking fees.
All orders canceled may be subject to a 15% restocking fee based on the specific parts ordered. This fee is based on 15% of the merchandise value. We work hard to accommodate all customer needs. However, if the order has already entered the shipping process then it will be subject to these fees.
There are two reasons for these fees: The shipping fee we encounter when we must return the unwanted part to the manufacturer; and the cost of the restocking fee the manufacturer charges us. If you need to exchange parts, you will be responsible for return shipping costs but, in most cases, you will not be charged a restocking fee. Exchange exceptions that will be charged a restocking fee include, but are not limited to, larger parts.
The Outdoor Network Pricing
The Outdoor Network strives to provide accurate product and pricing information, however, typographical errors may occur. If an item has been listed with incorrect pricing or the wrong information due to an error, The Outdoor Network has the right, at our sole discretion, to cancel any and all orders placed for that particular product. If you place an order that includes a pricing error, we will contact you via email to notify you of this error and inform you of the correction. The Outdoor Network and Boats.net strive to provide you with the best price possible. For more information see our Price Match Guarantee.
