As you operate and use your Garrett detector, you will quickly grow more proficient in its use.
It is recommended that you build your own test plot. Bury several items, including a nail, a
piece of foil, a pulltab, a bottlecap and several coins at depths of about two to eight inches and
a foot apart. Clearly mark the location where each article is buried. Practice scanning the
targets while listening to and studying the detection signals.

Remember that newly buried objects, especially coins, will be somewhat more difficult to
detect than items that have been buried for some time. This is primarily a metallurgical
phenomenon. Experiment with the various operating modes to see how your detector
responds. Practice trying to pinpoint and locate targets precisely.

When scanning, do not hurry. Scan the searchcoil at a speed of about one to two feet per
second. Keep the searchcoil flat and level to the ground. Move it back and forth slowly and
steadily while you walk at a pace that is comfortable. Be methodical. Do not skip any areas.
Wear headphones for greater sound perception and concentrate on your scanning.

After you have operated your Sea Hunter Mark ll for only a short time, you will be surprised at
how proficient you have become in its use. Do not expect to achieve the greatest accuracy
and success, however, until you have operated the detector for at least 100 hours or more.

Good hunting!
