Big props to you for trying to find the owner!

I think that just elevated you to the top tier of spearos.

I have a friend that lost a #3 Standard Riffe around VK124 earlier this year. His name is Michael Labit.

Re: Found: 1 Riffe speargun

I'm not sure how many people know this, but a Riffe without the shaft will sink in about 48 hours. I know this because a friend's son lost his Riffe on a deep spot on Thursday morning. We went back and retieved the gun just after noon on Saturday and it was still there, but laying on the bottom. I can only asume it had gotten waterlogged and sank. Anyone else have any other thoughts. Jetro, I really do know a guy who lost a #3 Standard Riffe in the vicinity of Viosca Knoll #124 about 60 days ago. I can give you his number if you like. I don't know about distinguishing marks on his gun, but you guys could talk if what you found is a #3 Standard. Thanks again for being so honest. You must be a good guy.
