    Check New to this. Best equipment? Help? Located near Tampa...

    Hey all. Been on here a few days now. Looking stuff up. Figured I'd just go ahead and ask the pros!

    Whats the best equipment for finding treasure? Not just lost rings at the beach, but deep scanning? Ground and by boat... maybe shipwrecks?

    Have a decent amount of money to invest. Just need some help to get on the right path...

    Thanks in advance!

    If as you say you have plenty money to invest there will be many willing to work with you.

    Beware, be vigilant.

    Ive also been looking into flying drones for scanning too. Is this even a viable option yet?

    Sounds like you may need more than one piece of equipment depending on the type of searches you'll be doing. You'd have to be a bit more specific on where you will be searching, what you hope to find, whether you need it to be waterproof or not, deep diving underwater, or searching for small gold nuggets, etc. Also, we'd need to know your budget.

    Im interested in finding hidden caches with hopefully metal dector drones?

    Also sunken ships with my underwater rover good to 330 feet deep.

    From cedar key down to Sarasota. All well out of the is it 9 or 10 miles from coast of Florida on the west coast? Ive heard 9 and 10 but 3 miles on east coast.

    I know for fact that a barrel of gold has been found nearby.

    Instead of making a huge capital investment, you might look in to renting or leasing that side-scanning sonar or towed-array magnetometer.
    Oooh! A shiney thing! Can I put it in my nest?

    If metal detecting drones exist it would be my guess the military owns them and they don't share their toys until they are obsolete and they have much better toys.
