Had a call from a gentleman who flipped his kayak in a local lake. He lost some fishing gear and an important set of keys. The depth was over 25 feet in zero visibility, and had no close shore access. To do this search would require hiring a second search & recovery diver, and supplying a boat. I explained to the gentleman that the requirements for conducting a safe search with a chance of recovery would be more costly than replacing the items, and he agreed. I reccommended he call Baldinos locksmith, with whom I have had good experiences. I also suggested he could try using a large magnet on the end of a rope.

On Friday the 4th I received a frantic 2am text from Stefan who lost his gold and diamond wedding ring on the Barry University campus after a soccer practice. I spoke to him at 4 and we met at first light.
Stefan had seen it fly off his finger on Thursday evening while walking down a pathway but it disappeared into the bushes and he was unable to locate it. He was truly panicked for he stays on campus during the week but was going home to see his wife that night and could chance doing so without his ring on his finger.
He showed me the area where he lost it and I proceeded to start searching.
Within a few minutes, and with the help of my Garrett pinpointer, I found it in the mulch below the bushes. Needless to say, he was very happy and only now would he share the story about the lost ring with his wife.

We were on our way to a water hunt in Orange County. We end up at Harbor Police office. Tryin to get an OK to dive this area. As you know, things are never what they seem. We are told of an Officer’s knife dropped close by.
We head to our dive area and do 2 dives in the area, with lots of trash.
Try swingin slow as to not churn up the muck. Ha .. Still an intresting dive. Uncovered all metal in this dive area.
Our time here is over, to be continued…
