Well finally after a few years of waiting the new toy is finally in the back of my truck. Keene 4" 3 stage dredge. Pick up a great deal, only 3hrs on it! Faxed the permits off today and just need to pick up a suit, mask, air hose and regulator, weight belt and some small little things. Come on summer! :-)
let's go suck up some gravel!
Nice! I was watching a show this morning with a guy using a 6" (i think) and he said his best find was 800 ounces in two weeks.....wouldn't that be cool? Good luck...sounds exciting.
Yup, that would be the "old buzzard", Massie Sr. yes they were using a 6" dredge with twin motors.

800 oz.! wowza! 800oz X $950.00= $760,000.00 in todays market!
THE GOLD BUG HAS BIT ME ONCE AGAIN! Au FEVER!
Are those beer holders in the pontoons??? :-)
Seriously, I salute you for the purchase. Am debating a similar purchase but can't justify it right now.
If I can get my sons into the hobby then I'm all over it.
BTW what is the weight? looks to be about 250lbs or so.
Good luck this summer. AT $1000 an ounce you can't go wrong.
Yup beer holders they are! ;-)
