Lost Texas A&M Class Ring Galveston, Texas (Recovered)

Lost Texas A&M Class Ring in Isla Del Sol boat channel Galveston, Texas (Recovered)

I received a call yesterday from Alfonso regarding his lost Texas A&M class ring. Alfonso said he was visiting some friends in the Isla Del Sol area of Galveston Island when he lost his ring. Alfonso said he hand his friends had been throwing spent crawfish shells into the boat channel behind his friends home.

Alfonso said he did not see the ring come of his hand, but knew he had it on, because his ring had been an item of discussion during the crawfish dinner. Alfonso said after cleaning up and throwing the shells into the channel he realized his class ring was missing.

After speaking with Alfonso he sent me a few photographs of the channel and bulk head behind the house. We made agreements to met today and search for his missing ring.

Alfonso was specific on the location where he believed the ring would have landed in the water, but after nearly an hour with no results we expanded the search area. After resetting out grid another 10 feet, the ring was recovered within a relatively short time.

I had set up one of my GoPro’s to record the recovery while I was in the water, but unfortunately the recovery took several hours and the camera couldn’t hang.

As with most of the boat channel’s in the Galveston area, there is a large amount of debris, some or most related to hurricane IKE which covered island with more than 10 foot of water.

The visibility was minimal (ZERO) and all targets were sifted blindly by hand, but make no mistake, when you grab a ring, you know it.

Priceless Treasure Recovered Woodlands, Texas

I received a call from Edith today who wanted to know if I could help recover her IPhone from the bottom of the Woodlands Boat House Waterway. Edith said she and her husband Stephen had been kayaking today, and when they returned to the dock and exited their kayaks her phone fell out of her pocket. Edith said it fell in the water right of the edge of the dock into about 7 foot of water.

Edith said prior to the kayaking trip she had placed her phone in a zip lock baggy to ensure it would stay dry while on the kayaking expedition.

Edith said she had obtained my name from Kyle the manager at the Woodland Boat House. (I had recovered Kyle’s Texas A&M Ring several months back when he accidentally dropped it into the waterway)

I told Edith that she shouldn’t count on the phone being undamaged, questioning whether a zip lock baggy would hold its seal at 7 feet. I suggested she just file with her phone’s insurance and pay her small deductible and get a new phone (normally $50.00). I told Edith my operationally cost’s for an underwater recovery would likely exceed that amount.

This is when Edith provided the following information:

  1. Zip Lock Baggy .05 cents
  2. IPhone $199.00
  3. Pictures and Documents on IPhone (priceless)

I met Stephen at the dock this morning and he was very helpful in providing clear directions on the location of where the phone had been dropped. This is extremely important when dealing with zero visibility water conditions.

I remember from my previous trip to the Woodlands Waterway that the bottom is steel re-enforced concrete with about 6-8 inches of muck and debris on top of the concrete base. I didn’t spend much time on my last trip (it was very cold) trying to dial down my Excalibur to see if I could by-pass the re-bar. I opted to use my hand held Vibra-Tector 730 on this job, and it worked very well, not at all effected by the re-bar in the concrete (a lot less power in the hand held unit),

It was like working inside of a bottle of chocolate milk, but not quite as pleasant of an odor. I told Stephen this waterway reminded me of my days as a law enforcement recovery diver and some of the jobs I had worked and preferred not to remember :)’

Well after a few missed attempts, a bottle top, a piece of wire, a pair of sunglass, Bingo an IPhone.
