Last week one of the drillers on my crew Tina, had a family outing down at the river, swimming, playing, and picnicking, while splashing around her granddaughter lost a 24k gold bracelet in chest deep water. The grownups had taken the young girl out into deeper water and the granddaughter started to panic, and in the commotion that was when the bracelet was lost. Tina ask if my metal detector could work under water and on our next days off if I would try to help her recover it, the cost of the 18 month old's bracelet was just over $300. To me it was to much BLING for a baby at the river.
Tina knew more less where the bracelet was so that made finding it easier, except for the chest deep water, also it was in a pool area so on the bottom it was deep silt and the bracelet sank not hard packed river gravel. We found it in around 20 minutes, the bracelet was the second signal I got, the first being an old beer can.
