Thanks Mud, think this was the second attempt in the hunt a couple of hunts before, got onto a target in the same area just giving off a repeatable signal dug down and got the sound of a broken prop tried getting it out but the hole kept filling in and was too tired didn't want to waste the little energy I had left so walked away

Got this one a few hunts ago. Took ages to get it out of the hole Only reason I kept at it was I really wanted to know what it was. It was sounding off like lead but the signal area was huge. Found out why

It was a boat prop day myself but only dug boat props.....

Huge score............... thanks for taking the time to share the loot.......
Thanks Rob, thought I did when I saw 60g on the scales was hoping for 40g had to reweigh it a few times just to make sure
Boat props can take a heap of digging to get out sometimes dug out a complete prop once. Gave a real strong hit on the Excal thought it was shallow got way down to it and took a heap of scoops to get it landed

LOL a scuba weight belt. Never saw one of them before! That looks like an oldie as most are outdated anyway. You should come here and help me dig out the bomb!

Default Yikers!

I found that same style of chain at the beach when I was on vacation last month! Unfortunately for me, mine was copper.

I'm happy for you, that you can enjoy the rush permanently. The rush only lasted a half second for me.
Huge chain, huge congrats!

Now that's a chunk of love. That's better than a night with Jenifer Lopez. Well let me think about that one. Congrats while I decide.
