What is THAT doing there?
    I saw that too... wondered about it but had a long weekend off and forgot to post about it.
    Prob has something to do with that lil tractor they have in there. When I first saw it I was laughing. What's that gonna do? Haha.
    Bet they tie the lil tractor to something else so it don't tip over or if it starts to sink, they can pull it out.

    That's my guess...

    that is the point of this thread. what the hell was it for?

    I would think that this shows the U Shaped structure is part of an attempt to block the flood tunnels...

    I started this thread because I hoped to have a serious discussion about what t "U" shaped structure was for. it is a shame, but not a surprising shame, that the usual cast of clowns has decided to sidetrack this into their own little "pissing party"

    I don't see any sign that the structure had any height to it. how it could hold water back. I keep thinking that it is a base for something.

    That is what I have been saying. Who builds virtually anything out of logs that is only 1 log high... Guess some of them could have gotten washed away over the years but..............

    Hopefully they will have that whole area surveyed and locate each item found before they have to cover it all up, then they can map it out.. Something that should have been done many years ago...

    A better question is "What WAS the elevation between tides at the time it was built/used?" and maybe higher pieces above water then, are long rotted and washed away. It only takes one good storm to bury a beach feet deep in debris. Anything not dug out for continued use, just keeps getting more debris piled on.

    The newly posted illustration of the cove above looks like an old breakwater and boat hauling ramp.

    Anyway....have a good day all. OH, I liked the little well we've never managed to be shown before when they were looking for more of that stone. All nicely capped with glacial stone and concrete.

    I'm surprised they dont do a survey with GPR.
    Or get the folks back with the sonic blasting and survey.

    LOTS of people used concrete.

    Where would the Romans have got the volcanic ash to substitute for the burnt lime in Canada? I doubt they filled a trieme with ash and rowed across the Atlantic to bury something or make a wharf/dock crib.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Charlie, I am not suggesting that the romans came to OI. don't think anyone is. the comment that the romans invented concrete is valid. I imagine that there were many post roman folks that tried to replicate their formula over the years.

    if you want to have a real conversation, why, if the concrete was poured in the 60's wasn't there some record of it. a picture? there are pics and records of everything else that happened in the 60's.

    Actually concrete was first used in a section of what is Saudi Arabia ("Nabatea") as far back as 6,500 BC - almost six thousand years before Rome or Romans. The hydraulic concrete the Romans are famous for ages so well in sea-water because the Romans used volcanic ash in the mix.

    The concrete they found could have been poured in the 1800's or a little earlier, even. Or any time after.

    Just where are records kept when people construct docks or cribs? Did the Brothers check the equivalent of the county code enforcement office for old records to see if anyone applied for a permit? I bet not. No good TV time in that.
