Nick was enjoying a warm fall day in the intracoastal waters by Ponce Inlet when disaster struck! No he was not bitten by a shark or stung by a stingray but in his book it was almost as bad! As he was fishing off of the pier he felt his wedding ring come off of his finger and he watched as it fell into the salty water and quickly disappeared out of sight. He had heard of things like this happening to other people but he was stunned when the realization hit him that his precious wedding ring was now gone…and maybe even gone forever! And here it had happened to him.
Nick was determined to recover his lost ring and he and a friend spent the next two hours holding their breath and trying to dive to the bottom to feel around and by some miracle come up with his ring. Needless to say they were not able to find it and in the end gave up their search attempt. That evening though Nick went on line to seek help and some advice on what could be done in his predicament. And to his surprise up popped a story on theringfinders.com of my recent recovery of a lost wedding ring in St. Pete, Florida that resembled what had happened to him earlier that day. And after reading how I was able to reunite that ring with the distraught young man, Nick felt he should give me a call.
It was Saturday and I was free to respond ASAP and two hours later I met with Nick and he graciously gave me a hand hauling all my gear down to the waters edge. As I surveyed the situation I realized again that I had a fairly steady current caused by the out going tide to contend with and by tying my kayak off to one of the pilings and by staying close to the base I then would be able to thoroughly search the exact area where Nick said it fell into the water. Actually Nick had wisely put a small notch in the railing where he was standing the moment his ring came off and thankfully it was only two feet out from the piling below. As I slowly descended to the bottom I was surprised that the visibility was barely one foot with a fair amount of silt and sand moving across the bottom. My first target was a small metal file off of a toenail clippers and my next signal was a shallow one. As I eased myself closer to see if I could visually identify what had caused my Pulse Dive scuba detector to sound off so loudly I caught a glimpse of something circular and reaching out to retrieve the item I felt the unmistakable feel of a gold ring! Again I prayed a prayer of thanksgiving to God for allowing me to find Nick’s lost ring so quickly! What a thrill it was to be able to hand his ring to him and see the joy and happiness on his face! And thanks Nick for giving me a call and for allowing me to help you!
