Stephen was up visited a close friend for a weekend of fun, fishing and tubing at Whitestone Lake, Dunchurch, Parry Sound District of The Muskoka Lakes, Ontario.
The guys came back from tubing, sat in some dock chairs to relax. Stephen had taken off his very special communion cross and Greek anchor chain given to him by his Grandparents and put it on the dock chair. He forgot about it, picked up his tee shirt and watched the cross and chain fall through the dock boards into the water below.
They tried to locate the cross and chain in the murky waters below but had no luck. Stephen called upon my services to help the next day.
I had a three hour drive, we set up the DIVE BLU3 Nemo hookah system which has a lithium battery and 10’ hose and with an underwater pin pointer we were all set!
After 35 minutes of clearing all the metal objects I finally recovered Stephen’s cross and chain!
Check out the underwater video and the surprise recovery to Stephen!
His sentimental cross and chain meant the world to him and he was grateful to revive it back with TheRingFinders help!
Thank you Stephen for your donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!
Yolanda from Hamilton was on a day out swimming with Friends at a very lovely private swimming pond in Hockley Valley, Mono in the gorgeous Dufferin County area!
Yolanda was recently given a white/yellow gold ring with a center sapphire surrounded by diamonds custom made from her Brother just 3 weeks prior. There is a huge sentimental reason she was extremely upset at accidentally losing this beautiful ring!
I was advised it was a sandy bottom over 10’ depth. It was certainly not a sandy bottom as the bottom was covered in a white dry type weed vegetation which was 2’ to 4’ high. There was incredible fish in the pond as my Minelab Excalibur2 underwater metal detector always seems to draw in the fish to investigate me ☺️ I love It! I was also not able to use my underwater circular gridding tool as it seemed the bottom underneath was concrete.
After 20 minutes, I circled back to ask Yolanda to walk around the pond for a different perspective to give me a closer location to where the ring came off. I headed back out and within 5 minutes, I luckily heard that wonderful tone on the Excalibur2! BINGO! Then the SURPRISE!!
Check out the video of this ring recovery;
It’s a shame that this individual did not make a reasonable donation the the KSBCF charity. Lots of excises. I forgive you. Someone else stepped up to the plate and made-it-right! As his Sister is a breast cancer survivor. I was at a loss for words of his incredible gesture.
My “pay-It-forward” campaign Is my reward. Clients are to donate between 10-20% of the value of the item or more if they choose. They in-turn receive a tax receipt! Forgiven and forgotten! ONTO THE NEXT!
Samantha and Friends were dockside enjoying a beautiful sunny cottage country day. She accidentally dropped her new iPhone 12 into the water between the two dock portions. They searched for hours but had trouble seeing the iPhone in the dark mucky waters below the dock.
I arrived late in the evening with my new lightweight battery operated hookah system BLU3 NEMO and my trusty Minelab Excalibur2 underwater metal detector!
Took me but 5 seconds to see Samantha’s iPhone shinny side up! Check out the video!
One very happy young lady and another donation made to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation charity in which Samantha received a tax receipt!!
Paying-it-forward!! I love using my passion for metal detecting and five detecting to raise much needed funds to financially support breast cancer patients in need 💖
Megan was sitting out on a dock with a pile of Friends when someone fell into the lake. She jumped up to help and her cell phone fell into the waters dockside in Gibson Lake, Port Severn in beautiful cottage country of the Muskoka Lakes region in Ontario!
I headed up after work with my underwater metal detector and decided to use my new DIVE BLU3 NEMO hookah system with the 10’ hose instead of all my scuba gear! The Blu3 Nemo hookah system is around 15lbs and is perfect for any recoveries 10’ or less!! Beats dragging all the gear and heavy scuba tank(s)!! I love this little unit!
During my underwater grid search I had a visit from Mister Bass. I pulled up some cans, bungee cords, a hot wheels car and finally managed to find Megan’s cell phone in 10-15 minutes! Hopefully the bag of rice I supplied will help save her phone/photos from damage being in the water for a few days already!
Here is the video;
I have a call out fee. When I recover the lost item, I don’t take a reward! Instead, I request the client to ‘pay-it-forward’ with an immediate online donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! The client then receives a tax receipt for the amount donated!! This is my 13th year snowmobiling for the Kelly Shires!
I received an email from Adrienne that her husband Michael lost his platinum wedding band in the silty waters dockside at their cottage in Lake Rosseau!
Lake Rosseau is an absolutely beautiful area in Ontario’s cottage country!
Michael was covering up their boat on a cold day and his wedding ring slipped off between the boat and the dock into the silty waters six feet below.
They made attempts to find the wedding ring themselves with no luck. A Friend suggested to contact my through The Ring Finders Dot Com website in which Adrienne connected with me!
Ontario cottage country was ablaze with the various trees “fall colors” on my trip up to Lake Rosseau in the Muskoka Lakes region!
I brought along my brand new hookah system called the “BLU3 NEMO”! This unit has a total weight of 10-12lbs total! I still had my fill scuba gear just in case!
Michael showed the exact location on the dock where he watched his wedding band fall into the water.
I proceeded into the water with the hookah unit and my Minelab Excalibur2 underwater metal detector. Five minutes later the wonderful “tone” of platinum sounded off in my headphones after I pulled two nails! BINGO!!!
I proceeded up from underneath the dock with the beautiful wedding band leading the way!
Here is the video of this beautiful wedding band recovery for Michael & Adrienne;
Happy smiles all around!!
Thank you so very much Michael & Adrienne for entrusting me to recover this beautiful wedding band but also your very generous donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! I am humbled at your generosity as a credit to my metal/scuba detecting skills!
I am honoured to be finishing off 2018 with 13 successful clients and look forward to many recoveries and returns for 2019! I have met some really amazing people and raised over $1,300 going to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation for my #PayItForward campaign using my metal/scuba dive detecting hobby raising donations which is all my reward monies going to this wonderful charity!
I have completed a compilations of most of my successes in this YouTube video
