Mike forgot his clam rake when he went to the beach, but that didn’t stop him from digging for quahogs. The only implements available for digging were his hands, and he made good use of them until he realized that his gold and diamond wedding band had been left behind somewhere in the muddy sand. He took careful note of the area where the ring likely was lost, probably some 50-60 feet offshore, obtained a non-waterproof detector and made an attempt to find the ring but had no success.
Browsing the web, Mike’s wife found my Ring Finders page and contacted me several days later. I talked to Mike and we made arrangements to meet so he could show me the area to search. At the beach he waded out to where he thought the ring might be, and I marked it with a buoy and started my search. After some additional thought he moved the buoy and I searched that area for about 50 minutes until it seemed clear that I was getting out of the zone where the ring might be. I moved back to the original area and sure enough, within about 10 minutes had the ring in my scoop. With some huge smiles, handshakes, and hugs the ring was soon back on Mike’s finger where it belonged!
Thanks Mike, for the opportunity to help you out and get that beautiful ring out of the mud and back in its rightful place!
