Missing this? While crabbing in the bay I borrowed this measuring device from Diane and her friend. Then I accidentally dropped it back into the wrong bucket after using it and found it in my bucket once at home. She saw me in the pictures about “how do you seek out garage sales.” Call me at 250-642-0267 so I can give it back.
