Received a phone call from newly engaged Crystal inquiring about the recovery process of her recently lost 62 year old Heirloom 18k white gold with diamonds that belonged to her late Grandmother in the water at Gulliver’s Lake in Millgrove, Hamilton, Ontario! A popular RV camp ground, water activities, swimmers, beach goers and scuba divers with no motorized boating allowed!
Crystal advised her Fiancé Garrett of what we discussed but Garrett wanted desperately to find the ring himself due to his fun play of throwing his Fiancé into the water. He purchased a detector and wrapped it in plastic. They searched for hours with no luck and decided to call me back and book me for Sunday morning!
With permission granted from the Manager Debbie I arrived to meet them onsite 10am Sunday.
Unfortunately, Crystal felt her engagement ring fly off. They had a 10′ by 10′ exact area but us detectorists know how trajectory and ring weight can play an important role to determine its path!
With a silty bottom and not too bad visibility I decided an underwater circular grid would be best at 6″ to 8″ depth with my scuba gear, 2 fiberglass poles, high viz yellow line and my Minelab excalibur2 with short dive shaft was set!
I set it up with Garrett that we were going to surprised Crystal as I felt strongly this wouldn’t take long in which it was amazing it took 25 seconds after my initial set up!!! A PERSONAL RECORD FOR ME!!
Check out my YouTube video and surprise!!!
Well, we definitely surprised Crystal to say the least…. BEEP……BEEP and Garrett and Crystal’s Father a sign of relief!!
Happy to help this young couple out on retrieving her beloved late Grandmother’s Engagement ring that meant the world to them and the Family!!
Thank you Garrett for his donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation in my “PAY-IT-FORWARD CAMPAIGN”!! Using my passion for metal/scuba dive detecting to raise much needed funds to breast cancer Patients! Instead of my receiving a “reward” for finding the clients item, I insist the clients makes a donation to my Charity that I’ve Snowmobiles/Volunteered with TGE last 11 of 20 years bow onto Year #12!!
