Well the very next day after it fell in, they removed all of the finger docks.
I have now lost the reference that I had as to where it went in.
And so ..... I'll just have to get over it.

Thanks all for your replies.
Extemp.

Is there some rule that if you drop something in murky water it goes sideways and if in clear water it goes straight down?

If it makes you feel any better, I'm sure we've all lost more stuff than we'd like to admit.

I lost a nice Sony Digicam + full waterproof housing a couple of years ago. I found out the hard way that although it was very buoyant in saltwater, it sunk like a rock in freshwater. I went through 2 tanks of air looking for it in scary zero viz water, underneath a waterfall. All I found was big creepy eels that wanted to nibble on me.

hmmmm. You could always read the apropriate words over it, and then get a life?

Seriously, we are all becoming waaaaay to addicted to those cruddy little machines. Go smell the sea air, Kiss your girlfriend, have a hot rum toddy. Pat a dog.

Gluing yourself to that little electronic slave master is really dumb.

Clam Rakes vs Clam Guns

Here in the PNW we have clam guns instead of rakes...sort of a cross between a shotgun and a shovel. Clams are often a little hard to identify after we shoot 'um but none of them ever get away!

Thanks hugosalt,
If I hadn't missed my chance to retrieve it, this looks like it might have worked.

Regards,
Extemp.
