Synopsis: Marty and Rick discuss their disappointment at finding a searcher tunnel from the Chapel era. They close the chapter on the first hole and move on to the second one. Some very large rocks have been pulled out of the second hole. They shift to the swamp while the second hole is being dug. They’ve got a 63 horsepower pump this time to drain the swamp. The water will be moved to the cave in pit, where a pervious underground searcher tunnel collapsed leaving a giant hole. To set up the drainage they have to dig a little tunnel under the road to not affect the trucks going to the money pit. Back at hole two the dig is progressing nicely. Marty is running the excavator in the swamp. Jack metal detects in the hole, but gets no hits. Marty removes more dirt and when Jack detects again he gets a random hit but it disappears. Charles Barkhouse and Randal head to a small town where they have been granted access to the archives. They get to see a map from 1883. This map says that Kidd’s Treasure is on Oak Island. Back at the swamp Marty digs a few more holes. No more hits anywhere. Marty calls it. He puts everything he dug up back and smooths it out. Rick asks for more metal detecting on the swamp before they turn off the pump. At hold two the drill team has hit a snag. A large rock is preventing them from going farther. They drop in the drill bit to make their way through it. Rick brings Gary Draydon to metal detect. He wants to cover everything. He does get a hit. It’s a nail or spike that resembles a railroad spike. Gary says it’s a deck spike for a Spanish galleon or sailing ship. Everyone meets up at the local pub to discuss what’s been going on. Back at C1, the drill bit is making its way to the cavity. One of the crew comes over and tells the team the hole is drilled through.
