I'm glad they came up with (up to) 5 year renewal, but PITA? Hardly. I got on their website and it took 2, maybe 3 minutes and I'm done.

BTW, I like brightwork as well. This is my first boat without any and I couldn't be happier. I'll never have another with brightwork unless I win the lottery and can pay someone to keep up with it.
