Matt, gave me a call at our dive shop (YSS Dive) in Hoodsport WA. He told me that he had put his wedding ring in his pocket and when he went to take his keys out, the ring fell between the slats of his dock and into the waters of lake Cushman. He thought he knew right where it fell into the water. Since it was only 4 to 5 feet deep, he borrowed a pair of swim goggles from his kids and tried to look for it. But had no luck. I grabbed my scuba gear and small underwater metal detector and headed over to help. After about a 10 minute search I discovered the ring had gotten wedged between the dock post and a support beam about 8″ up from the bottom of the lake. I came up and handed Matt a rusty nail I found during the search and joked a little with him saying “All I’m finding are these rusty nails”. However, at the end of the nail was his missing white gold wedding band! I love seeing the reaction of people when they are reacquainted with their missing rings. Matt was SO happy and said his wife would be extremely happy as well.
Lose a ring in or around the water? Give me a call. I’m happy to help!
