Has The Sea Ghost Housing Been Discussed On This Forum?


Recommended Posts

An interesting question, BigSky Guy. The 8-pin coil connector only uses 7 pins, there's a spare. And the 0 Volt/ground of the USB port appears to be connected to one of the coil pins ( transmit cold ). So in principle, the spare pin could connect to the 5 Volt of the USB port. That then allows you to charge the battery through the coil connector.
However, it's worth noting he's used an 8-pin connector for the audio output, even though it only needs 3 pins .... so perhaps he's simply wired all 4 USB pins to that connector ( and just leaving one spare pin )

I assume there's three 18650's in parallel, so if the best available types with 3400 mAh capacity are used, that's 10200 mAh , which is about double the nominal 5000 mAh capacity of the 26650 size. Even if more modest 2400 mAh cells were used, that's still 7200 mAh, with estimated 19 hours run-time.

I considered this mod in my first equinox 800, but finally I sold it and get a new one... Only for the warranty. 

Those who have the SeaghostMod, what can you say about the Equinox for diving? Anyone compared it with Excalibur?

I have tries to  in touch with Sea Ghost with no response as of yet.  Is there a secret to getting him to respond?

      Well boys... she's back, like the throbbing in your skull the next morning that just won't go away... LOL....
      All kidding aside, I know where the expertise is, I know where the experience is and where I can trust the advice, I know where users are respected and Steve keeps a tight ship, and that's here... lastly, I know when to eat a little crow....
      That and I wanted to share something I just purchased from Doc if you haven't seen them already.... you all know I've been flying a 4500 (I purchased my first one from Steve back when he was running AK Mining in 2009/2010 if I remember correctly, I then bought an Infinium based on his awesome Hawaii review), since then I've swung 2300's, 4500's, 5000,'s and a 7000 that you all heard me complain about as it pulled out ounces for me... well I bit the bullet, mainly due to needed arm surgery and weight issues and picked up a GPX 6000... and of course the obligatory Doc's cover for it (Hey Minelab, we know you want to, just buy him off and include them already, we all know that no one else makes a cover worthy of your name on it). :)... so that said, I wanted to share my thoughts.. this is not an ad.. I paid for this item. Steve, if this does not belong or belongs in another area, I apologize sir, please delete or remove as you see fit. As it fits the Minelab, I figured this would be a better spot than cluttering up the main forum.
      We all know Doc's quality and high expectations from his supply chain... but we also know where companies can save a penny here, penny there to increase profit, it's quite evident in this workmanship that Doc builds these because he loves what he does, not because he's trying to make a quick buck off of us. You've seen others using cheap double sized tape/velcro, not using enough velcro ect. We all know... that's not the way Doc works (notice the 3M logo, notice the FULL LENGTH velcro on the arm cuff, not some short 3" piece, notice the quality scuba suit material)..... 
      I present you all, another work of art, straight out of Doc's Vegas lab.... Well done Doc.....another quality product, worth twice the price.
      Note: This is not an advertisement or paid endorsement, I paid for this item, I just appreciate quality when I see it and owning covers from Doc for my SDC, my GPX's and my GPZ's there is NO one I'd buy another from... and thought you'd all appreciate seeing this workmanship as much as I did.

      It's nice to be back boys...... stay safe out there..

      I had one coil that had a cable that was badly sun burnt and brittle. A bit of heat shrink and tape fixed it, but looked nasty. The Snake Skinz covered the mess nicely. Looks like a useful solution to a common problem. Probably will fit most coils, certaily good camo for repairs. All the best.

      OK , I got my EQ800 out and cleaned it today wishing I had a cover to protect the head ….. my mind is ALWAYS thinking and paying attention to detail ( I’m a tool and die guy so you can imagine the struggle sometimes with perfection LOL ) SOO I came up with this , PRESS-N-SEAL cling wrap ! You can apply it like a screen protector and it wouldn’t leave a residue when you take it off and it’s thicker fir dig protection ( I need that bad apparently…… ) and guess what ? I think one application will last a good while and you can probably get hundreds out of a 5$ role …! COOL OR WHAT !! ( my arm is hurting from trying to pat my own back LOL . Pics of the final outcome soon. I’m thinking I’ll just poke a hole for every hole that’s for the  speaker apply it , ( I think just your thumb rolling over it like your taking a finger print impression will work for good clear seal - I’ll find out soon ! Ps I don’t proof read all the time so if something sounds stupid read between the lines .

      Got creative today and decided to sew up a super light weight cover with a       waterproof liner and the bottom padded for my GPX 6000. 3 ounces for weight.

      If you want a hard case, I ordered this Plano 36" case ($79) and it is just barely big enough. It works as is, but I will take a little foam out of the top foam in the areas directly over the body and batteries. You could buy a larger case than this, but do not go any smaller.
      Packed and ready for four days detecting

      Hey gang all backorders are filled. Check with your dealers as they have stock on the way to them as well.

      Rob Allison, Chris Gholson, Gerry McMullen, Bill Southern and Finders Keepers in Kalgoorlie Australia.  Listed alphabetically in the U.S. by last name.  This was just a fraction of the production run.  But I had these shipped by air because I know so many people have been waiting.  The balance are coming by boat.

      Here's the instructions for those of you that want an understanding of the meticulous attention to detail that went into this cover.  Special thanks goes to the President of Minelab, Peter Charlesworth, who assisted me along the way with advise, suggestions and gave a thumbs up on the unique blue camo material.
      By the way the weight for the entire cover set, which consists of 5 pieces is under 8 ounces.  There is the main body cover, the arm cuff cover, the arm cuff strap, the head cover, and a detachable shade cover for the head cover.
