Joe and Judy were down from Nashville, Tennessee spending the winter months at their condo on Siesta Key. As thy were putting away their boat on the lift, Joe leaned over the side and his I-phone slipped out of his pocket and into the sludge at the bottom of the dock. As the news spread at the condo one of their neighbors, who had called SRARC for a lost ring which Mike had recovered in the previous year, told them about our recovery service and they soon found us on the internet. Joe Szemer sent Mike Miller the contact information and he next morning at low tide Mike began the hunt in neck deep water and foot deep bottom muck. After about 15 minutes Mike hit a target but could not retrieve it in his scoop. Changing tactic’s he began pushing his coil under the target and moving it toward the bulk head and shallower water. After several attempts the target stayed on the coil and up came the I-phone. The amazing part is that after 3 days and nights under 6 to 8 feet of salt water all they had to do is clean it up, charge it and it turned right on as if it had never been under water.
