Man no wonder it’s taken +225years to find anything at this rate lol

  • I think the stone road was used to move dirt away from the money pit dig to the area between the two islands to create the swamp. This would hide all the dirt from the dig. I don't think the road was made to move treasure to the money pit. The treasure was moved in via the dock in smiths cove. There is another entrance near smiths cove. The Y in the rock road feeds dirt from the money pit and the secret entrance to the swamp area.

Why don't they just look at that survey drawing now to confirm he knew about that ring bolt? These guys never seem to try to tie together all the information they already possess!

  • The paved area would have been laid by the military since it had the manpower during the time it had an instillation on the island, so their dock and road going up to their work area didn't turn into a mud hole. The layer of organic material on top of the paved area which dates older than that time came from the spoil pulled from inside the island washing into the swamp. Digging the inside of the island out has reduced the island's height 15 feet. The material is still on the island, it is just spread out. This would not have occurred in an archeological dig, but in a treasure hunt it did. The Money Pit was a smugglers' warehouse for rum evading import taxes. It has no relationship to the road. Coconut fibers were used for maritime shipping dunnage, because they don't sour and rot like hay. In fact, they are used for that today. The rum and the coconut fibers both come from the West Indies. The coconut fibers were buried to hide the illegal activity, because burning them would attract attention. There are no flood tunnels just trenches dug to hide the coconut fibers.

    • @Lewis Doherty Lewis what you said makes sense and yes I did watch a few episodes of Beyond Oak Island not that they actually tried themselves looking for treasure and then it was gone. No more episodes. We will see if that returns.

    • @Linda Begovich The show is making money and probably covering the exploration costs and crew members. The brothers have already seen the end coming and have created a new show, BEYOND OAK ISLAND. The truth is, if anyone really does have a good idea where a treasure really is, it likely isn't going to be shown on a TV/cable show.

  • They are certainly clearing an interesting path for Tom Nolan it come right up to the back of one of his sheds. It might make an excellent Bache course. I hope they put the clay driving surface back before they move along to something else. My brother's reoccurring saying is that in order to get a feel for a road, one must ride it at speeds that it was designed for. It is also curious how they got two different sets of stakes and it evidently hasn't occurred that the hundred year difference means that the road was surveyed twice. Once by it construction team and once again by someone aware of its existence. That potentially means that they are search for an empty hole. The treasure might have been placed in the 17th century and recovered in the mid 18th century or added to. What was found at the end of the 18th century might just be the vestige of the removal. Or it is possible that there is more than one money pit on the island.
