Must have Horizons, best way is to land on a planet on the light side, also good train. hear are the top 5 spots I found skimmers.

1.downed diamondback 3-4 skimmers wanted/clean( Rare)
2.salvage spots 3-4 skimmers wanted/clean (most common)
3.data pod 1 skimmer wanted/clean (uncommon)
4.mining site 3-4 skimmers wanted but also defence turrets sometimes(common)
5.data building node 3-4 skimmers wanted/clean (uncommon)

Not that on your SRV radar these site will show on your radar as vertical lines from far, then light up the top of your radar when getting closer to the object , if you see just bottom of the radar light up then that is a rock. Ship will have the same signature so make sure you dismiss your ship when going on a roam, also ships will fly over you sometimes
