  • from Rockport (Maine, United States)


I headed to Sebago Lake in Naples, Maine after receiving a call to recover this beautiful heirloom engagement ring. Emily’s mother entrusted the ring to Charlie when he asked for her daughters hand in marriage. At sunset the previous evening this young couple were on the dock of the camp the whole family had rented, when Charlie decided to pop the question. Taking a knee he inadvertently opened the box upside down, and the ring fell out slipping between two deck boards and settling several inches into the silty bottom in 8 feet of water. The recovery took only about 15 to 20 minutes, upon returning the ring, I insisted Charlie finish the task. By the way she said yes. The couple now officially engaged are returning home to Delaware, with the first of many true life marital adventure stories to look back on and chuckle about as they build a life together.

White gold wedding band recovered from Little Ossipee Lake in Waterboro, Maine.

  • from Rockport (Maine, United States)

Alyssa contacted me to search for her husband Jordan’s wedding band which was dropped from a swimming dock in 6 feet of water at her parents lake side home. This had seemed like a pretty simple recovery, however in addition to the lake bottom being a bed of very tall grass the layer of loose silt was about 12 inches in places. The search took about 8 hours over two days, but ended with a successful recovery and another great photo for the book of smiles. With the birth of their first child expected this week, a portion of their generous reward will be directed to a local diaper bank to help ease the burden other parents are facing.
