Warranty / Guarantee
We will honour without question all rights conferred on you by the Consumer Protection Act and any other applicable legislation. These may include the right to a refund. We are so confident in the quality of our products and services that we also provide further guarantees in addition to your statutory rights:
All products manufactured by us are warranted free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of one year from the date of despatch. If a fault should develop as a result of any such defect during that period we will, at our sole discretion, repair or replace the product in question without charge. The purchaser must contact us and return the products to us by an agreed method for evaluation, at their own expense. However, any costs incurred in doing so will be fully refunded if the product is found to be genuinely faulty. This warranty does not cover failure of any product due to misuse, abuse, unauthorised modification or repair, accidental damage or any cause other than defective materials or workmanship.
All products manufactured by another manufacturer and sold by us are covered by the guarantee or warranty provided by that manufacturer. However, we will endeavour to assist you with any claim under the manufacturers warranty and, at our discretion, may replace or repair at our own expense any genuinely faulty products. If you ask us to replace the product from our stocks and we agree, you agree to provide us with any information that we may reasonably request that may be needed in order for us to obtain redress from the manufacturer.
These warranties are in addition to, and do not affect, your statutory rights.
The supplier of any goods purchased is Dogfish Marine which is Registered in South Africa.
Address: 15 Bigwood Ave. Libradene Boksburg
Description of Goods
The goods sold pursuant to these Regulations comprise items selected from those described on our Website or any other goods made to special order or offered via any other remote method such as email special offer .
The price of goods purchased via the website shall be the price advertised on our price list or provided by us in the form of a quotation at the time of purchase.
Except where an obvious error has been made by us, all quotations are unconditionally valid for a period of 14 days. After 14 days and up to 30 days we will respect our original quotation providing the cost of providing the goods to the customer has not risen by more than 10%. After 30 days a new quotation must be obtained.
Goods are delivered directly to your specified delivery address. The delivery charge will reflect the cost of despatch, and will be agreed with the customer for each order.
Except in the case of approved credit accounts, payment for any goods purchased pursuant to these terms must be made by Credit or Debit card, Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). Payment must be made at the time of placing the order and prior to delivery.
In accordance with the Regulations, individual consumers who purchase from Dogfish Marine using a 'distance' method such as the internet, email, mail order or telephone have a right to a 'cooling off period' during which they can cancel their order for any reason. Consumers may cancel applicable orders at any time within seven working days starting from the day after their receipt of goods or services. This right does not apply to business purchasers, custom orders nor to any customers who purchase goods whilst visiting our premises.
All stocks items shown on the web site may be returned in their original condition for any reason, and a full refund will be provided. To take advantage of this right you must notify us within a period of 7 working days from receipt of your order, and return the goods to us at your own expense within a reasonable time from that notification. If you are unable to return the goods yourself we can arrange to have them collected. However, the cost of doing so must be met by you, and may be deducted directly from any refund due to you.
Custom products are those specially manufactured to the specification of the customer. Although the regulations do not provide any right of cancellation for such orders, we will allow any custom order to be cancelled at any time before manufacturing has commenced. In such circumstances a full refund of any prepayment will be made, except where components have had to be ordered specially in order to meet your specification and we are unable to cancel the order with our suppliers. In such a case the refund on cancellation will be the amount you have paid less the cost to us of those non-returnable components. Once manufacturing has commenced cancellations cannot normally be accepted. However, in cases of genuine hardship an exception may be made - please see the 'Variation' section below for details.
In circumstances of genuine hardship Dogfish Marine may, at its sole discretion, agree to waive part or all of its rights and provide a partial or full refund to customers affected even if they are not entitled to such a refund by Law. Each case will be reviewed individually. None of the above affects our Warranties or your Statutory Rights in any way.

We undertake to:
Deal with any problem that may arise quickly, efficiently and sympathetically.
Always treat our customers with respect and courtesy.
Put right as a matter of course anything that we may do wrong - our customers should expect that rather then hope for it!
Give all our staff the authority to deal with simple complaints on the spot without needing to refer to senior management.
Always allow customers to access the highest level of staff if they are dissatisfied with a decision of a less senior staff member.
Learn from any complaint we may receive so that any avoidable problem is not repeated.
If you ever have cause for complaint you can contact us via telephone, email, post or indeed any other contact method in order to get the problem addressed. You can use any of the contact details published on this site, but may email firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
If you are reading this section because you have a complaint you wish to raise, please accept both our apologies and our assurance that it will be dealt with as soon as you notify us.
