New Member Located In Yuma Arizona


Recommended Posts

I relocated to Yuma Arizona 2 years ago after finding the USArmy 1853 steam paddle wheel Uncle Sam. I am always looking for people to metal detect with, I work wrecks all over the world. When I’m not investigating wrecks, I’m out swinging a detector. Anyone that wants to put in some miles I’ve got lots of hunting ground, in and out of the water. Currently involved in three ongoing Spanish ( Shipwreck projects,  currently researching a fourth,  actively involved in the search for an English 1587 wreck etc. today I got up at five am to hitch the boat in order to go explore a new area of desert, accessible only by boat, the two people going with me blew me off. I’m trying to find others that are more committed to actually searching for the gold and not just talking about it.  I have found it before because I understand that to find the loot you got to get some blisters, and wear out some boots. No one ever finds treasure sitting in front of the T.V. If you don’t dive no worries, we find a lot out of the water too, if you dive and don’t have gear, no worries I’ve got more than most dive shops. From Polaris razors to boats to ships, fully equipped to, metal detect,sonar, mag, ROV, UAV,  dredge, dig, lift, recover and preserve.  I’ll do modern salvage or crime scene dives if the price is right otherwise I stick with going after gold and historical finds and meteorites.  Home is Yuma, current projects are Arizona, California, Oregon, Washington, and  Mexico

Welcome aboard and I am sure that someone will be interested in helping you out.

If I didn't have so much on my plate for the next year I would be jumping on your offer.

I do not dive, but I am in posesion of my grandfathers Ocean Pearl if you know what they are.

Good luck on your adventure, and please post some of your finds.

That sounds like a great offer to the right people! Wish i could be one of them!

  May i suggest advertising in the Treasure Coast area of Florida on several forums! Those guy's and girl's on their off salvage season, are experienced, and may be available for part of the year!

Good luck with your hunts!👍👍

If I would have met you in 2010 ... I was ready for treasure and had plenty of time and interest.  I just didn't have someone who had the research bug to go with at the time.

Now I've got a wife and two little kids as treasure finds!

Steve and Lunk are down your way part of the year.  I've detected a few times around Yuma and liked it.  I found a few nuggets and know there is a lot more.

Hi TG,

Welcome to the forum. I have sent you a short txt. I metal detect and am a certified (but infrequent) diver. I love history and as a kid I cleaned boat bottoms and did a little wreck diving in Long Island Sound.

      G'day from lovely downunder. I thought I'd introduced myself but evidently not, apologies.
      I had a GP3000 and 3500 many years ago. Had to sell up due to divorce but kept my Sovereign GT for the beach and parks.
      Back on the hunt now so will be picking up a GM soon when they come back up on special, and something a bit better down the road when I'm a better off financially.
      Just thought I'd say hi,,,and yes I have an old banjo LOL.

      Hi,
       
       I'm a old (age over 50) detectorist from Italy. I used a lot of m.d. in 26 years (various model of Minelab, Whites, Tesoro, XP, Fisher, Garrett and the latest Rutus), but i love so much the Whites Spectrum XLT. This is for me the best detector of all time. I hope to know news and interesting contents about the magic m.d. world!
      Greetings from Italy

      I have some unexpected extra time on my hands and am going to give metal detecting another try after quite a few years.  I was on a couple of forums that might not exist anymore.  I took the detectors out of the closet and brushed off the cobwebs and dust.  I have a Troy Shadow X2, Tesoro Bandido II, and a Whites GMT.  I mainly used the Shadow for hunting for relics and found a few. I recently sold a Tesoro Eldorado to a friend and hopefully he'll get the detecting bug and we can go out and find something interesting.    I'd like to resume the hobby and search for relics, gold, and meteorites out here in the desert.  This is a great forum with expert reviews on detectors and many informative posts.  I hope to learn quite a bit and enjoy the hobby.

      I am retiring at the end of August.  I will be pulling my 5th wheel around the US hunting nuggets and relics.  I have been mostly vacation detecting for a couple of years now.  I am really looking forward to doing A LOT more of it with way better equipment.  I have met a lot of other detectorists out there and what I'm looking most forward to is making friends with more of you.  I get a lot of enjoyment from sitting around the campfire swapping stories, getting to know people and absorbing some of the vast knowledge of how and where to hunt.  I hope to see y'all down the road!
