Season 9 of The Curse of Oak Island is well underway.
In the episode tonight they showed more of the same.
Tonight we saw more activity with the drilling survey with the possibility of a void or drain tunnel.
The location of the loose material in the core samples seems to line up with some of the seismic results and may help determine where the large cans will be located.
More wood was found in the swamp with many pieces that look like they may have been part of a boat or ship.
An underwater archaeologist believes that some of the pieces are parts of a ship.
Carbon 14 results of several of the wooden pieces came back at late 17th to early 18th century which are definitely from before the money pit was found.
There seem to be two clusters of C14 dates. Some that are earlier by 50 – 100 years. My thoughts are that perhaps this is evidence of a ship that had been in service for many years and then later renovations or repairs were made to the ship accounting for the later dates. Or, perhaps the later dates come from remains of smaller watercraft used to load or unload a ship that may have been built at a later time.
There was also a coin found while they were metal detecting. The coin was too dirty to see details, but the thought is that it may be a British coin similar to ones found several years ago.
All in all though this was an episode that had more of the same as what has been seen in recent episodes.
