The Curse of Oak Island

Has anyone else started watching this show? I am a sucker for this kind of thing and so far it has been very interesting. You can watch the first two episodes in the link below. Since this was filmed over the summer, if any of you have figured out what happens please use spoilers for anything that hasn't aired yet.

http://www.history.com/shows/the-curse-of-oak-island

For those who aren't familiar, very briefly, it is about an island on the eastern shore of Canada that is rumored to have buried treasure from possibly the Knights Templar dating back to the 1300s. In 1795 an apparent secret hiding space was discovered in which levels of wooden planks were buried every 10 feet. Digging down around a hundred feet, they found some gold link chain and a few other things. Eventually they dug to a point that causes the hold to be flooded by sea water as if it was some sort of boobie trap, which is believed to come from some type of tube that is out in the ocean.

Another person in the 1970s dug alongside the original hole but also got his hole flooded by sea water. These guys now who are on the show purchased most of the island and are trying to solve the mystery with help from the guys who dug their own hole in the 1970s. The hole curse aspect is just kind of meh and I don't really pay attention to it, but I am sure the producers just like the added element it presents. The mystery and adventure is really interesting. It is nice to see a show like this that is actually producing some results so far.

it's very puzzling. HOW some one pre-1800 built this is unknown. WHY is unknown - you certainly wouldn't go through this much effort for a prank.

I'm not really expecting an answer to any of it, and certainly not holding my breath for treasure.

no they actually purchased the controlling interest of the company that owns the land.

its been quite the ordeal by the sounds of it.

I sure hope those guys find it... they certainly wouldnt be allowed, but I wish they could get permission to bring in the biggest excavators with the longest booms and dippers known and just dig the hell outta the area until they get down to whatever it is.

What confounds me, is how the ancient people, whoever they may have been, engineered these extremely intricate water traps fed by the sea with ancient technology, or even got down that deep in the first place.
agreed this is some awesome shit.


hoping like hell they figure it out

Yeah, but suppose you have to dig further. Digging underwater doesn't work so well.

Hell, if all they need is someone crazy sign me up. I'd gladly die for a share of the spoils.

Man... to HELL with that diving business, that old man was NUTS.

It seems like if they just did another big dye release and had divers stationed at the various places offshore, they could find the inlets and plug them up.

Shut off the water.

My solution is to use the corrugated steel flood walls they used to shore up New Orleans.

They stand them up straight, have a vibrating attachment for a backhoe, or a cool vertical ranking rig, and drive them well into the ground.

Do that close to the shore, where the flood shaft would be at its shallowest depths. Boom. Pump out the shaft. Profit.

How do you find the inlets for the water though? This isn't a bucket you can hold up to find the hole.
