  13. Beach hunting with the GPX5000

    Chris, I was recently helping a fellow with his 5000 out in the Dale. He had been using it at the beach for 5 or so trips. Even though he said he wrappd the control box good in a plastic bag you could still feel the corrosion on the toggle switches. I can only wonder what the inside of the box must look like. I would leave the 5000 at home and take the Gold Bug. Even if you wipe it down well after use you still can not get the insides. With that said, there is a guy that goes by the name of Rex Goliath that posts on Chris's forum that does quite well on the San Diego beaches with his 5000. I have seen pictures of some nice rings and so forth that he has found. You can also feel the corrosion on his toggle switches. Leave the 5000 in the desert and take a pair of dark sunglasses so your fiance can't see what your looking at. Good Luck, Dave
