    Couple weeks on the Shark

    I started detecting back in April, hit the beach, found very little.. mostly just some clad.
    I was really itching to get out in the water, and was kicking around the idea of which water detector to purchase.

    Well, about 3 weeks ago, I found a used sand shark (thanks tazz1) and picked it up for a good price.

    It arrived 2 weeks ago and here are the results of my hunting since :

    8 total rings

    left to right

    1. copper thumb ring (my first ring ever)
    2. 10k gold butterfly ring (my first gold)
    3. Sterling Silver Disney princess crown ring (my first silver)
    4. 10k 2012 class ring
    5. 14k plated ring (pretty old ring, as the maker has been out of business since the 70's)
    6. SSteel thumb ring with crosses around it
    7. SSteel thumb ring with flames around it
    8. a small copper ring with some stones it it.
    Below is a small cross pendant, no stamp, doesnt feel like junk, not sure of its metal (I have a test kit coming)(UPDATE: The cross is 10k white gold ... making it technically my first gold find )

    The other photo is the clad and interesting junk I've found.

    Also, the class ring had the owners name inside, I was able to call the school, and give them my information.. the school contacted the student. We talked and he will be coming down on Saturday to pick it up (he lives about an hour away).

    That's pretty much the extent of my finds at this point in my MD career. Needless to say, I'm pretty well hooked on water hunting now.


    Thanks for looking.

    That's a lot of great finds. Iv'e had my sand shark for two weeks now, havn't been able to get to the beach yet . (Question) what size coil do you have, and did it flop around alot in the surf.if so do you use a coil brace. This may be for Terry to answer. Still very great finds.

    I've got the 10.5 inch coil.

    Yes, it does flop around in the surf quite a bit, but I took a piece of lexan and bent it to make a support.
    At first I ordered the coil support they make at Kellyco, it arrived, I had a good laugh, and then I made one myself. The one from kellyco may fit all Tesoro machines, but it was NOT designed with water use in mind.It's a big flat plate that is perpendicular to the side to side you will be doing with your coil. In effect, it is a sea-anchor.

    Here's what I made (Thanks goes to lookindown for the design) : Click image for larger version.

    It may be ugly, but it WILL hold your coil still in some pretty heavy surf, and it doesn't drag when you swing the coil

    The other picture is of the control housing with a strap around the latches.. I highly suggest you do something similar. I had a scare when my clothes caught one of the latches and poped the housing open in the surf. No water got in, but could have been a disaster if I would have been deeper... upon doing a bit of research, this problem is NOT uncommon.


    I hope this info helps.
