Jeff took his ring off to put on suntan lotion and put it in his hat and forgot. It was not until he was in the water before he remembered. After he got home he found my information on theringfinders.com website and texted me. On my first trip I could not find it after searching 2 hours. Before I returned Jeff sent me a pic he took on the beach which helped me locate the area. It only took about 20 minutes the second time.
