  Not much to go after in those parts but Beach Hunting.  Lived in Cocoa Beach for three years.   Looking for VLF or PI type detector.?  PI has the upper hand in salty wet sands.   How much in the Piggy Bank ?   New ? Used ?   How fast would you like one ? 

    Don't fret.  Fresh Meat is good around here.

  I would go with a Pules Induction (PI) detector my self.   Would you be thinking of getting Wet ?  Or Just Dry Beach ?

Sorry for not responding sooner...been "off the grid" for a few days... I will be based out of the Florida Keys but plan to spend time all over Florida either on my trawler or in my RV (travel trailer)...I want something that I can get into the surf with so I am looking for help with which unit may be best for that...sounds like PI is the way to go...it needs to be a fully submersible unit...Piggy bank is pretty flush so that shouldn't be an issue...

  Cool Wet it is.  How Wet ?  Less then 10 feet Wet or More ?  Here is a line up of current PI detectors on the Market.  Some you can get Wet others you can get REAL WET.  Down to a few hundred feet Wet. Have a look see.  Plenty of Brain Food to give you some Idea's of what's going on.
