To me , the tunnels part , the man made beach , the man made swamps and all the flooding traps. Someone must have been on the island a couple of years. That was not done over night. There must have been some kind of settlement somewhere on the island. Would be interessting to have permission to metal detect on it.
Very doubtful. Anyone thinking any possible treasure is near the depths they have dug is seriously lacking in common sense. No doubt there "could" be something there pirates were real, but if they did bury something there it wouldn't be more than 10 or 20 feet deep. It may well have been already recovered by someone smart enough to keep it quiet. The real estate alone is probably worth as much as any treasure with the legend intact.
I believe in the so called clues (scratch on a rock etc.) that have been found as much as any ghost story / UFO sighting. Lots of people crave attention not much gets it better than a treasure story.
That said I have been watching it, they had a guy on there last episode with a minelab ctx 3030, apparently found something in the swamp. My money is on it being a piece of junk iron.
Hard to understand why someone would have go to all that trouble to hide a treasure . If there is something there . hope they find it
I was just introduced to the website this evening, I have not yet had the chance to look at its contents but I am looking forward to doing so in the coming days.
I just started Metal Detecting last spring and I only had the opportunity to get out 5 or 6 times, I am sad to tell you that I did not have any "significant" finds but then again I am only using a Bounty Hunter 1100.
I am looking forward to reading and looking at the posted pictures of everyone treasures in the upcoming season.
If you go on youtube you might be able to find some helpful video on your machine , that is how i learn a lot of stuff about mine.
