At the time, Breakwater customers told Global News they’d waited weeks or months for registrations on boats and trailers, and had been sold faulty equipment.

One customer said they were concerned they didn’t actually legally own the boat they’d purchased, while another person said police had recovered their Sea-Doo trailer, which had been stolen 17 years prior.
