In mid August Andrew was attending a weekend long pre-wedding celebration of a Friend which was hosted by AJ Janis.
The weekend was wonderful at the Janis cottage with golfing day, food and beverages and male Camaraderie!
Earlier in the day some grease had gotten on Andrew’s leg while he was cleaning the barbeque grate. He decided to go far a quick dip in the lake and tried to clean off the grease. Andrew then swan towards the other side of the dock, reached for a pool noodle and immediately noticed his ring was missing within 30 seconds of cleaning off his leg.
The Janis’s are scuba divers and subsequently completely two excursions with no success. The bottom was filled with zebra muscle shells along with the silty bottom it created poor visibility if disturbed.
During the golf game my former City of Brampton co-op student Charles was smoking the guests of the pre-wedding ceremonies and mentioned to Andrew he knew a “Ring Finder”. He provided Andrew my details.
Andrew called and sent incredible detailed information. As the depth of the ring was likely between 20’ to 30’ I had to dawn the scuba gear and therefore required a spotter or 2nd diver. I then reached out to my Facebook Friends with a wall post if anyone was available to back me up!
Friend Mike Hamilton had a Family cottage on Otty Lake and saw my post. Mike’s Wife Patti whom happened to be heading down to Otty Lake for a girls weekend called and offered her services!
Patti also happened to lose her reading glasses off the Hamilton dock as well she posted on the Otty Lake Association page and the owners of Colin Farmer Cottages just had a visitor from Toronto Blayne lose his wedding band.
Therefore, I had two more recoveries scheduled!
Patti and I were all set up and in I went! Andrew’s extreme details was the key to finding his 10k white gold wedding band in only 1 minute snd 30 seconds using my underwater Minelab Excalibur2 metal detector!! It was absolutely incredible and was my personal best/quickest scuba dive recovery!
Check out the VIDEO above and below the water!!
I tried FaceTiming Andrew to surprise him with the good news but he had taken his Wife to the Hospital as she was in labour!
A few days later knowing of the pending birth I sent a text with the good news and a photo! They were very grateful!!
I huge shout out to Patti my spotter/assistant/commentator, Charlie for the recommendation and to the Janis Family for permission to make the recovery attempt! I see a future training session on underwater metal detecting with the Janis Family!
Blessings to Andrew and his Wife on the birth of their Daughter… the real treasure ❤️
Also, thank you to Andrew for the donation coming into the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation. He will receive a tax receipt! I absolutely love using my passion for metal detecting, hookah detecting snd scuba dive detection to raise charity donations!
