Synopsis: The team drives over to Cat to buy large scale digging equipment. They make their choices and head back to the island. They meet with another Oak Island theorist, named Robert Markus. His theory is based off a map that was in a book. He believes the map was drawn by the Zino brothers and Henry Sinclair. He then introduces the boat stone located in Weston, Massachusetts. He shows them several things that link together. He gives them a location to dig and that it should be 40 feet down. They plot it out on the island and mark the suggested spot. The next day all the heavy equipment gets delivered. Marty gets into the 40 ton excavator to dig where Robert Markus told them to. While digging they find a piece of timber. They also find blue clay. However, they have also found water. Whether it is a flood tunnel or natural water is undetermined. At that point they stop as the treasure is supposed to be in a dry area. Marty fills the hole back in so it’s not a safety issue. The Money Pit is back at the center of attention. Dan Henske lets them know that the Hedden Shaft is in close proximity. It intersects the Money Pit at about 125 feet. Marty’ s plan is to dig three feet deep and locate the Hedden Shaft so that they can pinpoint the Money Pit. Marty starts digging carefully with the smaller backhoe. Wood is dug up pretty quickly. Rick jumps in and starts investigating with the shovel. so now they switch from the backhoe to the 40 ton excavator. There’s more timber and it’s oak.
