I do want to say that for the past year I have never been threatening, demanding, etc in all the communications with Viking - I gave them the benefit of doubt countless times, and urged them to contact me as at the end of the day a satisfied customer is much more of an asset to a company, than a disgruntled one.
However, since they continue to ignore me (their website was recently updated with a new testimonial), or return my $4000 deposit, I changed stance, and now am actively telling folks to make an informed decision based on my experience.
I just sent emails to numerous Canadian television stations - I'm optimistic one or more of them will pick this up as a news item since so many folks are experiencing the same issue I am.
I also gave a "heads-up" to a few more online threads where folks were considering Viking lifts:
And I posted a "heads-up" to this consumer board - http://viking-marine-international.pissedconsumer.com/viking-marine-paid-4000-deposit-still-no-boat-lift-after-1-year-2-months-20110705247074.html
Next e-stop - the Hamilton police station to file a fraud report against Viking, similar to the one Serg did 2 weeks ago per the below Performance Boats thread.
