Lost Ring at Hale’iwa Beach Park...Found

by

Ring North ShoreNorth Shore RingDetermination is how I describe the recovery of this Wedding Ring…I was talking to my friend Joe about a difficult dive I had the following week, Hale’iwa Beach Park apparently is a popular fishing destination and had accumulated thousands of led fishing weights over the years, After about 2 hours of scuba diving with my metal detector I had to give the bad news to Paige, I let her know that with all the fishing tackle stuck in the coral it seems impossible to recover your ring, my detector doesn’t discriminate led.
After telling Joe the story he suggested we go back and clear out the led and clean up the coral reef, I thought to myself this will be a big task but the idea of cleaning up the environment a little sounds like a good plan, so after about 6 hours of diving for me and 4 hours for Joe we felt a little better about our chance of finally finding this ring, on my 3 weekend of diving in this spot I received the low sound of gold in my headphones, the ring was stuck in a small hole in the coral and you couldn’t see it or find it without a metal detector.
Altogether Joe and I found 4 rings,removed about 20 pound of led… a few fisherman were sure happy to get the free fishing tackle and Paige after 3 weeks she finally got her wedding ring back on her finger.
Mahalo to Joe for all the help and determination!
Another Great Recovery.
