ID:	1767177 it made it as far as islamorada before it was picked up by a family. They added there picture to it and through it back. I found it in key largo and will email the original senders when I relaunch the bottle in the middle of the gulf stream on my way across to the bahamas. The original goal was to see how far this bottle would go...so I'll give it a boost in the apex of the gulf stream.Click image for larger version.

ID:	1767187 on the spanish treasure I've been busy diving for the treasure salvage boat down in keywest. The problem is the weather can change the conditions in an instant this time of year. I've been taking the equinox down to TH HQ with me so when diving gets canceled I can hunt the beaches inside our lease boxes for spanish evidence. Click image for larger version.

ID:	1767195 there were plenty of other relics too. A world war 2 hat pin button with 13 stars, bullets, suspender clip...etc etc... nothing like my September of cobb finds but still trying. Nice to finally get down on the bottom and start treasure diving after a full season of magnetometer work !! Not a great time of year to start treasure diving....but....at least were diving when conditions allow !! As for my equinox... dont fool yourself into believing this machine is for anything else than waist deep water !! Took it to 8ft. And it popped after 20 minutes. That's 2 feet less than its rated. I'm scared to take it to 5 feet for any amount of time !! So... its excal for serious water hunting, and get the eq fixed for a light weight beach and land machine. I guess if they called it water resistant no one would have bought it. You can splash it but not to much, you can use it underwater but not to long. That kind of marketing would not sell many machines....so they claim waterproof and do a lot of warranty work. Dont get me wrong I'm a mine lab man....there advertising is a little deceptive though.
    All right guys happy hunting..and good luck !!

    Congratulations on a nice month of finds, great to have a plan "B" for every situation. Land or Water doesn't matter treasure is found every where, I found a folded One Dollar Bill in the parking lot last night. must have been several people walk right over it and never even knew it was there. If you look you will find! Keep up the great hunts and keep posting photos, Thxs.
