Bottom Paint

Has anyone had problems like this? I''m at my wit''s end with the dealer, Great Hudson Sailing Center, in Haverstraw!

As part of dealer prep, we had the bottom of our 311 painted on delivery. When we examined the boat this Fall, all the bottom pain was actually chipping off. Myles Gordon of the Sailing Center tells us "it''s supposed to wear off." This is not wearing off, tho, it''s actually chipping.. peeling. A professional said it was definitely improperly applied product. Dealer is trying to have us pay for the repair. Additionally he is not going to sand it completely, but "feather" the uneven surfaces. Is this cause to sue? Thanks for your comments.
