Season 9 of The Curse of Oak Island continues to drag on. Are they waiting for the last episode of the year to show what they have found, if anything?
In the episode tonight they showed them getting to the bottom of the third large can.
They did show more about some items found during the last episode using metal detecting. One was a possible boom chain and the other a tool for either setting barrel hoops or packing oakum between boards on a ship hull. The blacksmith, Carmen Legge, gave a date when these may have first been used, which of course was then often referred to as the actual date. Again, I think the date would be later than what was given
Tonight they did a dive on a potential ship wreck. They were able to get some additional magnetometer readings, but nothing showed above the surface. They also talked about another potential site that they want to dive on.
Since they reached the bottom of the third can, they then discussed where to sink the fourth can. The episode ended with them pulling material out and loading it directly into a dump truck. They do not expect to find items of interest near the surface as most of it is fill in this location.
They also did some more scanning on an item that they want to dig up in the area where they found the chain and tool during the last episode. They were definitely seeing something about 20 feet below the surface.
The preview for next week did not show immediately after the show tonight, instead they launched into a new series about a hunt for Aztec gold. However, they did give a preview during the first commercial break.
The preview showed some more work in the area where they scanned this week looking for more information about the anomaly. They also showed some wood and also a metal shield being brought out of the fourth can using the hammer grab tool. It will be interesting to see what the metal shield is. I remember seeing something similar several seasons ago.
The season is definitely getting close to the end as the weather is starting to change. I need to find out how many more episodes there will be.
What did they find? How exciting will it be next week?
