A Ship in the Oak Island Swamp?

On Tuesday nights I will often wait until I have watched The Curse of Oak Island before I write my blog post. I want to see if something exciting has been found and whether I want to write something.

Curse of Oak Island, History Channel, Did they find anything?Tonight was one of those nights that it was good that I waited. In the last 10 minutes of the show they started digging in the swamp and ended up finding finished wood pieces that might be a railing from a ship.

As I have written before sometimes the clues that are found will support a current theory and provide evidence that they are headed in the right direction.

They have been talking for years about a ship being buried in the swamp.

Curse of Oak Island, Mahone Bay, Nova ScotiaMany things this year, including a stone road, have pointed to activity in the swamp.

They did find out more about the road in the episode tonight, but the wood in the swamp was the big discovery.

Oak Island, Money Pit, National Geographic, Curse of Oak IslandThe drilling this week moved away from the area of the Money Pit but after striking out they will dig again near the Money Pit next week.

Will they find something there next week?

Oak Island, treasure, Randal SullivanIt is always interesting to watch the preview of the next episode.

Next week it looks like they will find more pieces of a ship in the swamp, and they also get really excited about something found in a drill core.

It may be an exciting episode, or perhaps we will have already seen the most exciting clips in the preview 🙂

You never know with this show.

I will be watching.

    Why would anyone bury a ship and build dams at either end to create the swamp unless there was something hidden in the ship? It would have been much less work to take the ship out in the ocean and sink it if they just wanted to get rid of it.

    Think about this one: The stone roads werent for unloading ship cargo at all. The stone roads were for carting the spoils from tunnels and shafts out to fill in the swamp , bury the ship and dams they built to create the swamp
