How to destroy a kayak for warranty replacement purposes

During the warranty replacement process, we may ask  you to destroy your defective kayak and take pictures to send us of proof of this.

Cutting the bow or stern off the kayak is the best way to destroy kayak using hand saw or power tool saw as shown in the image below. 

We can see the stern in this case has been cut and the serial number is visible which is preferable for us.  

Note: If you do not want to destroy your kayak, you can pay 40% or original purchase price and keep it to use or sell used (if it is still possible to use), in addition to taking a new warranty replacement.
