Deep Water ROV For Sale
Have you ever watched the guys from Odyssey Marine on TV and wishing you had an ROV. Well this one is on sale on eBay, with a starting bid of $6500. Just in time for Christmas too. Wouldn't it be fun? Too bad it won't be showing up under my tree.
Bernie C., who started the St. Lucie metal detecting club, got a chance to try out his new detector. I asked him if he would send me his observations on the new detector after he had used it. He did just that after using the new detector yesterday.
Here is what he had to say.
Thanks Bernie! Those are two detectors that I have not used.
As you might remember, Hurricane Irene was a disappointment on the Treasure Coast, but she did uncover some things up north. In New York, for example, Irene uncovered part of an 18th Century fort.
Here is a nice article about that.
If you are around a historic area, always check out any eroded areas. Even little gullies created by rain run-off can uncover old items.
Treasure Coast Beach Forecast and Conditions.
The wind is from the East, and the seas are down around five feet now. That isn't enough to improve conditions for finding cobs but it is enough to keep stirring up the front beach. I would expect some new secondary targets on the beach fronts - mostly iron and other lighter materials.
The seas will be decreasing over the next few days and down around one or two feet near Christmas. That will make it easy to get out in the low tide zone, further than maybe than has been convenient the past couple of weeks.
I sure wish I had my camera with me one day about a week ago. I saw some things uncovered at one spot that I haven't seen for years and probably won't for again for another couple of years. It was one of those things where an isolated area just happened to get hit just right while most of the surrounding areas had no erosion at all. That kid of thing happens occasionally .
