    Another detector came into consideration.
    Garrett Sea Hunter mark 2 anyone had good or bad experience with that?

    That makes 3 detectors im thinking about:
    Tesoro Sand Shark (out of stock for about 3-4 weeks)
    Garrett Sea Hunter mark II (out of stock for about 3-4 weeks)
    Whites Surf Dual Field PI (Avalible but a bit more expensive)

    Now i know this question have been up here many times but all theese seems to be good detectors so is there any problems with any of them? (exept ill have to wait 3-4 weeks for 2 of them)

    With the taxes and customs and deliverycost the Tesoro and the Garrett gets even more expensive over all than where i plan on buying from (Finland) and theres atleast 2 weeks deliverytime from the States so that makes it almost the same.
    I bought the ACE 350 from US (kellyco) at about the same price as here with taxes and shipping but that too was out of stock here when i was buying.
    The AT-pro i bought kind of expensive too from Austria but i got a pinpointer and some other stuff that i didnt need with it. (kellyco style )

    The original question referred to how quickly depositions would form over a lost item in salt water. I don't know anything about Metal Detectors, but having been a merchant marine pilot for 20 years I can give some insight into depositions in salt water. If the waters are protected from wind and tidal surges with little current, it can take a very long time for sand to form shoals, and an object can remain with only a shallow covering for many years (remember the pictures they sent from the Titanic site). However, near shore, where I'm assuming you are working, particularly around pocket bays after a 'spring tide', shoaling can form as quickly as overnight. There are places I traveled around the Texas bays where keeping the channels open is a full time ongoing job for the Corps of Engineers. There were many places that I traveled through that were plenty deep yesterday, but today I would 'drag bottom' crossing. Around river mouths or in the rivers themselves, below the points shoaling can form very rapidly.
