That's a feel good tale...love it when someone gets lucky like that. A friend of mine living in an old Californina gold rush town had a very simular experience. After a flood he crawled under his old house to muck out the crawl space and fix any damage. In the process he disocvered a mason jar half full of gold coins. He and his new bride used some of the proceeds from selling just a few coins to bankroll one hell of a honeymoon.

Anyone have done underwater metal detecting? Besides a underwater metal detector, what else should be prepared before detecting?
