WOW! That is reassuring!
After blowing a trip to Sipadan with the first flood and loosing the first EX1, you go out buying a new camera, go to Bali, flood the second EX1 on the third dive (meaning another wasted trip) and then you go from Belgium to California to Gates to get a tour and "act of God" as an explanation. WOW! That is reassuring! You have wasted more than 20 000 € (an estimate for the first EX1, Sipadan, Bali and California) and precious time to get no explanation to this recurrent problem !!! This is lame.
Since there is no explanation for the flooding, how confident are you to go back in the water with EX1 number 3? Oh, I was forgetting that you are now insured but for how long?
Also not revealing the details of the agreement after using this forum for leverage in your legitimate claim is rather bad.
Using this forum as "leverage" that is not the way i see it!
I am allready for years on this forum and i learned allot here, and i used this forum to tell my storry and trying to find out what happend, and if you see to all the people against me in the beginning of the treath i do not think GATES had big problems with this treath.
But you are right i lost allot of time and money but the big question is is this GATES or my mistake?
And till now there is no answer on that, and that is what is BAD! i really like to know what is happend end why! and i can tell you GATES is thinking just the same and is looking like crazy to find a answer and i trust them if they find somthing no matter what they will tell the truth.
Even today i got a mail from John about new test's he is trying on the moment.
The details about the agreement are not important, the fact that i can tell everybody i left GATES with a good feeling is the only thing that counts.
And offcourse i will not feeling 100% going in the water with my 3th EX1, but John told me there is no way that i will have a flood again and the only thing i can do is believe this!
O yeah, and i can tell everybody that i recieved my money today from the insurance from the second EX1, divemaster whas really correct!
And also today i recieved my EX1 back the camera not even filmed 1 hour and looks like brand new but is worth nothing verry strange!
I am thinking to buy a fishtank with some fishes and put it on the bottom :-)
