Hi from the Illawarra
« on: September 21, 2017, 07:55 »
Hey all been lurking for a while thought I'd say hi. I've been detecting for a bit over a year with my X-TERRA 705 recently got an Excalibur ii and have been focusing on beaches and shallow water. Hoping to find some treasures to fund a ctx but no luck yet just plenty of coins.

Hello Tabdigger, Seeing as how you are hunting in the water I suspect the treasures are not far off coming your way.

Spending the day out at the beach or in the water it’s a treasure itself.
