Apollo Beach Recovery

Jana had just returned from an outing on Tampa Bay in her kayak and was getting out at her floating dock. As she stepped from the kayak to the dock she felt her wedding band slip from her finger and watched it drop into the water at the edge of the dock. She dove down and looked for any hint of a shiny object but her feet stirred up the bottom silt and there was nothing to be seen. Next she found someone with scuba gear and tried diving without stirring up the water but still could not see her ring. She made a query on Facebook and someone in her area suggested she contact SRARC. We responded with a small team because of the small area to be searched. Paul Hill and Mike Miller arrived at 7:30 am to catch the low tide. Paul went in with his brand new dry suit and within 5 minutes had the ring. Jana was surprised and very pleased to have her wedding band back on her finger in such a short time and we were happy to have been a part of returning it to her finger. By 7:45 am we were on our way back home. Awesome job Paul !!!!!!!!

I also want to thank our other Ring Finder members that volunteered to come on this recovery but were not needed because of the small area of this hunt. We really appreciate your willingness to help in our recovery efforts.

      Hey John,
      Paul got the suit at http://www.leisurepro.com/p-pinf3d/pinnacle-freedom-3-front-entry-dry-suit-black

      They are pretty pricey but I am looking into rescue drysuits that I think would be just as effective. Just do a Goggle of drysuits or rescue drysuits
