Doesn't Doc offer this? Check out his website from the advertisement on the main forum page.

doc doesn't, minelab won't do it, sunray won't do it, surf scanner turned me down. i guess i will have to give it a shot myself.

According to page 2 of Doc's online catalog he has a kit and instructions... I don't think I'm allowed to post the link, but the instructions are definately there.

what doc sells is an inline waterproof connector. i did that myself and it wasn't difficult as long as you aren't color blind to match the wires. what i want to do is open up the unit and connect the coil wire directly to the circuit board inside the housing and do away with the excess coil wire and the inline connectors. it makes for a more stream lined detector and lessens the chances of tangling the coil wire while diving. the ikelite bulkhead connector is used for the headphones so you can store the unit without the phones connected and use different headphones for different tasks. the WOT coil works so well with the unit i wont be using the stock 10" coil anymore.

Minelab did mine for me..

And it turned out great.. I mean, they put the bulkhead connector for the headphones in. They shortened the cable on the coil for me. Made the handle myself.
I still love the old seasearch coil.
All the best
