Synopsis: The team has brought in Brian Abbot to do some sonar scans of 10X. Marty wants to know if the chest is still in the same place or if it’s been moved. If the chest is in the same place, then John never found it. Will he find both the chest and the rock that John moved? Brain will compare the first scan with his new scan. In Brian’s most recent scan the chest appears to be gone. Now 10X is in question. Craig suggests cleaning up the bottom of 10X and removing the silt. Now the focus heads back to C1. John has arrived and so has the scanning sonar. They drop the scanning machine to the bottom of C1. Blaine will begin to do the scan. The first scan shows a shaft. It’s to determine if it’s safe for a diver to go down. He’ll try and get all the data together by the end of the day to present. Later that evening he presents. The cavity is about 10 feet and has a corridor. It’s also about 7 feet high and about 10 feet by 10 feet. John and his team prepare to dive. John is lowered down on a Bosun’s chair. He’s more than 170 feet underground and he begins to explore the chamber. John says the structure is sound. Visibility at the bottom is bad. The bottom is soft clay. There is no water movement. The walls are rough and irregular in shape with sharp edges. John hits his time limit. When he surfaces, he confirms there is a tunnel off the chamber and that it’s slightly smaller than the caisson. The follow up dive is being made by Mike. He will take a metal detector with him. He’s getting metal detector hits. The items getting hits seem to be embedded in the cavern walls. Mike might have located the object the team saw last year.
