  3. Bahamas??????????

    Apparently no. They started to do something and as far as I know still nothing
  4. How does one acquire a Treasure Coast lease and what is the typical cost?

    Yes, besides the $2000 and a fully rigged boat, the state takes 20 percent, then you split what is left with Queens Jewels. Of anything you find.
  5. How does one acquire a Treasure Coast lease and what is the typical cost?

    The start time is right now every year. End of May early June. Subcontractors pay $2000 per boat, boat must have blowers, and use yellow polypropylene anchor lines on all 3 anchors. Daily logs are sent in electronically monthly, by the end of the month. Everything is written down. Finds are...

  11. Lead sheathing, spikes and a strange fossil/ petrified object that responds like iron

    Aqua pulse are probably one of the most used UW sectors on the wrecks here. It is a non motion detector, which most PI are a motion detector. Many like that. They are very water proof. But the technology is many years old. They are not hot on modern gold jewelry or alloys. A good way to...
  12. Lead sheathing, spikes and a strange fossil/ petrified object that responds like iron

    That piece you found is rust. An Aquapulse will not pick up rust. As a Garrett Seahunter won’t either. That is an alloy, or a form of metal, that slow PI detectors cannot pick up. If you used a newer type PI , faster pulse rate, you would be able to pick that up. That is why those 2 are not...

  15. Nice day in Bradenton

    Friday and Saturday it was blowing a storm here. Sunday and Monday were breezy too. So today I went to Bradenton Beach for a while. Greeted by beautiful blue water and sky. Real nice out. Didn’t find too much, but didn’t put in much time.
