Julie had walked out to the docked pontoon, boarded it and was cleaning the seats near the rear of the deck. At one point, she was near the rearmost deck rail by the outboard engine. Her wedding ring (soldered set) slipped off her finger and took the plunge into the water. She said she saw it go into the water. Her and her husband tried to recover the ring to no avail.
They turned to the internet, searching for any means to find a lost ring in the water and came across the RingFinders website and contacted me.
Julie said she Always takes her ring off to go out by the water, but simply forgot, this one time!
As usual, being near a pier/dock, I had the usual undesirable targets to deal with, like nuts, bolts, metallic debris and hot rocks.
After about five minutes I got a good sounding signal on the detector, crossed my fingers (betting this was gonna be it). I located the target with my pinpointer and could feel a ring with a really large topside in my fingers. Looked to be it!
Didn’t waste any time, turned and carefully handed it over to Julie, who broke out in tears crying. I was at the ready to catch the ring or her, just in case.
A lot of family was there, for Father’s Day, they all expressed their appreciation.
