    I have seen concrete that was made before and during the Civil War on tombstones and on crypt burials and the cement looks to me like during the 1850's and later.

That fail must of been human error. It looked like a pretty basic mistake....

    If there is a cavity there my money would be on earlier searchers made it...
    A fatal mistake as it looks like it ruined a $2000 - $5000 scanner. Fired on the spot! Long walk home from OI!

    Not necessarily true. Could be depositor, searcher or a natural cavity... Lets do Rock, paper, scissors to see what one!

    Like I said above.... could be any one of the 3 but they have dug here, have had core samples and even a 6' caisson hole.... looks to be nothing to me.

    Yea I looked them up... Chaper 11!

    So when they pull up the caisson, they hope the "Chapel Vault" will fall back into the hole like it was before the caisson moved it? OMG, give it up! I was gonna take some pics of this nonsense as it is total Tom Foolerie!
    Dunfield filled in a 100'x100'+ hole with all the rubbish he pulled up and could bury. That might create pockets and voids as I am sure he didn't really care about creating sink holes and voids.... he just wanted off the island.

    Having the robot submersible flood internally was on purpose. That way it can't be stated on the show that the hole contained.....NOTHING

    Sonar clearly showed a right angle and the sonar tech said... "It could be a tunnel" BOOM! Proof!

    Now we will get back the diver that stirs up all the mud and can never find anything..... Then they will send down the backup diver who finds a bucket full of mud....

    IF they pushed it down and off to the side when they drilled , I cant understand the reasoning that it could magically pull itself back UP to the original position ...... more drama .. drill another hole

    Not sure if I understand the Sonar screen they were showing but when it showed the "Right Angle" it just kinda ended, and didn't go across the full screen as the device rotated in the hole and the "Right Angle" rotated on the screen the ends never got longer per say. Like it was just a cave with an angle if you will... Shouldn't the lines off the corner have gotten longer as it rotated around on the screen to where it had room to show it...

    in regards to the vault and money pit, they need to dig a large hole nearing 200 feet about 60 feet round. Then sift through all the spoils and put this to rest once and for all. This nickel/dime procedure they are doing is costing more money than just digging.
    Bucket list still needed:
    • Silver thimble
    • Spanish silver
    • seated half
    • flying eagle
    • early copper
    • 1700's coin
    • 1600's coin
    • silver 3 cent piece
    • nickel 3 cent piece
    • seated quarter
    • capped bust silver
    • draped bust silver
    • silver dollar

    I think all this was because of the water that got in the sonar.... all happened about the same time. Look, a right angle, boom, sonar dies cause of water leak. End show and speculate of a new tunnel or cavern under ground!

    Tune in next week when........

    60ft is not enough..... and 200ft may not be enough..... It will always be just out of the investigated area.

    It showed (at naseum again) yet another example of the natural common underground passages carved by nature. Meh...

    Ha ha... You are such a cynic my friend..

    So the premise is.. They got the right angle on the sonar BUT then nothing else showed up.. They wanted to drag this out for a few more weeks so got the guys to bring up the camera and organize an equipment failure (loosen the water proof casing or remove O ring) and send the camera back down. They then show equipment failure and leave us with the "tantalizing" prospect that a cavity exists there. Now they can justify a couple of episodes with a diver etc before they admit nothing is found/no cavity....

    One would hope the Laginas have not "sunk" to that level yet.......

    Sonar from the bot shows nothing of consequence. I doubt anyone would engineer what you are suggesting HOWEVER, there was more to that scene we weren't shown.
