    Oak Island 'reality' show - Bogus adventure IMO

    The so called Oak Island 'reality' show has turned into a boardwalk barker, drag it out as
    long as possible, bogus adventure that will produce nothing at the so called target depths
    being touted. That's because there is nothing there to find. I now believe the whole story is
    based on untruths to get more investor dollars from suckers who thought they would find some
    massive treasure. I don't fault Marty and Rick for wanting to believe the stories that led
    them to their quest but IMHO the whole original background on Oak Island has just been salted
    by hucksters looking for investor money to continue their projects. Perhaps the only
    exception to this would be the two true believers who spent a lifetime on the island and
    lived there. Sure they never gave up but there's nothing at 150 feet plus. It's just
    poppycock!

    The weaving this yarn about the Templars will not make a single difference in what they find
    because there is nothing to find at these depths. Now Rick is making comments like the maybe
    the true treasure of Oak Island is knowledge. Sure! Maybe there is a tooth fairy and a Santa
    Claus too.

    There may be still a pirate's chest or two on oak Island. They will not be found with silly
    cams that drill down to ridiculous depths below the ground. They will be found with something
    like this - a depth multiplier metal detector capable of detecting objects at 6' the size of
    a basketball. There are used to find things like underground oil tanks etc.
    Garrett makes one. You have approx. 140 acres to cover. Better start looking much closer to
    the surface and stop insisting the Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant, Shakespeare's books,
    and all variety of other fantastic treasures are waiting at depths of +150' in the Money Pit.

    There is no Chappell vault - stop pretending this is fact because it is not. It is hearsay.
    Just like all the people that think they are a hair's breath away from deciphering the Beale
    Code, finding the Dutchman's mine, or hell even the Lost City of Eldorado!

    The only theory that has not been spun by this 'reality' show is that aliens in a UFO built
    whatever lies below the Money Pit. Perhaps they buried a UFO! Right and I don't believe any
    of it!

    You want to find any pirate's chests left on Oak Island? Get yourself a depth multiplier metal detector
    or something similar by a legitimate metal detecting outfit. Then start to grid the entire
    island.

    If 11 spots on the island were determined to have been dug and recovered - odds are at least
    one more chest exists. Of course, that is unless this has already been done by people using
    equipment like Gary Clayton, who knows what he's doing with a metal detector - and we're
    never been told about it.

    So this is my latest thoughts on the Oak Island Money Pit. I'm sure that others have already
    said similar. I'm tired of watching filler on the show and feel the signs are all there that
    this is going nowhere. Craig Tester bowing out is one of those signs. The constant gibberish
    about Knights Templar is the final death knell for me. There just isn't anything in the Money
    Pit but a lot of false speculation by dreamers who refuse to accept the obvious reality.

    Whatever was there was removed a long time ago. That's my firm belief now and I'm sticking to
    it.

    Happy hunting!

    Check out Youtube - search Oak island. One guy ran a drone over Oak Island last summer 2017
    and saw no activity going on at all. Perhaps the 'hunt' is really over and all we are seeing is film
    footage cut in the past?

    Everybody has an opinion - this is mine. Humor will be part of that opinion. I've found things - some can only dream about. Some was pure luck, some was pure knowledge and skill. After 40 years at MD'ing (off and on), I know a few things about finding treasure lost in the ground. As a retired software engineer, I now have unlimited time on my hands. Life really doesn't matter unless you are true to yourself and in your dealings with other people.

    The Curse of Oak Island has not yet made any reference to UFO's or aliens, but the History Channels Ancient Alien show sure has made more than one reference to "Oak Island". Only the History Channel knows which route they are going to pursue, but I found it to much of a coincidence ? Nice tour by drone !

    hey I was just thumbing through a rare book on Oak Island and this picture fell out from the back pages. It's marked '30 feet below the stone lies 2 fully working UFOs'. Signed Lovejoy.

    You never know, it was curious as to how and why they were starting to introduce Aliens into their sister program. Are they trying to spark interest from the Alien side into The Curse of Oak Island or are they trying to kill The Curse of Oak Island by now casting Aliens into the plot ? If so, then ratings go down and History Channel can exit Oak Island based on viewer ratings declining and appear to bow out gracefully ? Who knows what the end game is ?

    well I think they want to spin off a whole series on Knights Templars fact or fiction, and I've heard Marty say in last two episodes that he was approached by people looking for ships on the Great lakes. I suppose they could spin off into shipwrecks of lake Michigan. Pony up to the bar boys and get out your wallets!

    Considering some of us have watched 5 seasons worth, maybe the History Channel should give us a percentage of anything they find. Without us the viewers, they would have no sponsors, without any sponsors there would be no show.

    oh come on - think of the treasure! You could get in on the underground floor of what might be the investment of all times - like having early stock in Mel Fischer's Atocha project.
    There could be gold like this - going, going, gone! L

    yeah I saw them touting that and perhaps that's why they keep beating those Templar Knight drums. Gosh those guys were all over the place and remind me of that old series Swampfox. Hiding in the bushes, hiding in the glen - nobody knows where the Swampfox has been! Rolls eyes.

    Maybe the cast can search the Bermuda Triangle for treasure chests and disappear there.
