    I've never had the pleasure to hunt the East coast up your way. How deep is the water out where you hunt? I was wondering if you're snorkeling the entire time or if you can touch the bottom? Sounds like pretty strenuous work, I know once it gets to about chest deep I have to work to dig deeper targets. I guess that's why a lot of people don't go out that far. Hope you get well soon.

    some spots i find - at absolute low - you walk out and it gets over your head - wearing a mask i could see like an under water ravine where it could be 7 ft deep but then gets shallow again - you can swim over the deep spot and it gets like 5ft - but you can only spend a little time out there till it gets deep out there too at
    some spots i can go out at low like 200 yrds - the life guard buoys are oout like 50 yrds so guys wont go any farther - thing is i remember going
    to some of these beaches as a kid and it was like 50 yard walk from parking lot to the water - its now like 25 yrds - so we were swimming way out there
    30 - 40 yrs ago - 100 yrs ago it was like 100 yrd walk to the water - so they swam way way out where i go now

    That is interesting. I like reading about the old resorts that were up that way and are long gone.

    a hurricane hit new england bad in 1938 and destroyed every single beach up here
    many hotels were whipped out and in certain areas we get a lot of pre 1938 relics - we can date items as pre 1938 easily
    at least those of us that are in the know and have done our research
    with a lot of the items - brass dor hinges , old door knobs, bottles now and then - other brass house fixtures
    some beaches had cliff houses and those tumbled into the ocean and you can find all kinds of house hold items
    some of these spots rebuilt - others did not and their history is lost to most - i know guys that hit
    some of these spots just for the new drops not knowing there are 100+ goodies to be found down real deep -
    ive come across other hunters that will show me a pouch full clad and new stuff and they ask me how
    im doing and i show them a handfull of old silver maybe a couple of old golds and a few nice relics and
    they are shocked... if you check out my early vids (starting in 2012) you will see a lot of those finds
    are from a lot of these hurricane hit spots - a large % of my gold and silver from these spots are pre 1938

    September 21, 1938 – New England Hurricane of 1938 - This storm made landfall on Long Island and Connecticut as a Category 3 hurricane. Wind gusts reached Category 5 strength in eastern Connecticut, Rhode Island and southern Massachusetts west of Buzzards Bay and Cape Cod. The anemometer at the Blue Hill Observatory registered a peak wind gust of 186 mph (299 km/h) before the instrument broke. The hurricane lost strength as it tracked into interior areas of New England, but it is believed to have been at Category 2 intensity as it crossed into Vermont and at minimal Category 1 intensity as it tracked into Quebec. The storm killed over 600 people and is considered to be the worst hurricane to strike New England in modern times.

    Alot of beaches rebuilt made new bath houses, restaurants , houses etc on the shores of Ct., R.I., and Ma. - then this happened

    September 15, 1944 – The Great Atlantic Hurricane made landfall near the Connecticut/Rhode Island border as a Category 1 hurricane, causing severe wind damage in southeastern Massachusetts and across the Cape and Islands. Damage on Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard was considered worse than that in 1938, with severe wind damage in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Much structural damage and much of the forest that had somehow escaped being decimated in 1938 fell victim to this storm. A total of 28 people died in New England due to the hurricane

    after this one a lot of towns gave up on making large beach facilities or any facilities at all and are now just beaches for the locals or just fishing spots now
    - you have to do a little research but you can find old pics or postcards of these spots

    Thanks for this information. I guess like most detectorists, I'm a History nut and love to read about old resorts and hotels. This gives me some more research material. Living down in the Deep South, I obviously don't hear much about the history of the New England coast. I've always enjoyed reading about the history of New England and thought about how lucky the detectorists are up that way to have the abundance of old places to hunt.
