Possibly, But Doubtful
23 November 2019 | by blackdaytonagtSee all my reviews

Since I haven't read all 189 reviews that's shown to exist, I cannot know if anyone else has thought of my admittedly wild theory. I am glad that Rick & Marty Lagina decided to undertake the ''mystery'' of this island with the kind of equipment to try to accomplish something along with the know-how to operate this equipment however, due to the structure of the island, I honestly don't believe they'll uncover everything they hope to. In my opinion, most of the island is not naturally formed. I do believe there was a small island in the beginning, but that original existing island was built up, out, and around over time to build this pit & truly be able to bury or hide??? I cannot see how the original ''Money Pit'', as it's now known as, could have been built to the depth it is unless the island was structured around it. Along with the depth of the pit, all of the flood water booby traps as well could not have built unless the island was built up by layers. The ''Lagoon'', as it's referred to, is another detail of the island which I cannot see as being natural. The fact that there are so many flood water traps at located at several levels in the pit clearly indicates to me that the island had to be built up in layers. In the episode showing the dye test which located several openings which the dye flowed out of into the surrounding water, in my opinion, clearly indicates that the island had to be ''DESIGNED & structured'' by someone. Yes, I'll agree that it could be possible that if & when the pit might have been dug, these water channels could've been discovered & their effluents or outflow channels & openings might've been enlarged to create these traps however, I honestly believe it would be extremely tricky to successfully dig a hole that deep with all of these ever present openings. With the island being 36ft. above sea level (I'm guessing the top of the pit is a few feet below that) & with theories saying the pit could be 200ft.deep, the water pressure from the ocean would be approx. 72psi (200ft. minus 34ft. equals 166ft. X .433 = + or - 72psi). Even at depths of 90ft. which had previously dug down to, the pressure would be around 23-24psi. With my 20 some years of experience working in the water treatment & distribution field, I know that only 23psi is enough pressure to break open an already present & weak mud/sand opening to an extremely free-flowing channel of water. To me, all of these details seems to make it nearly impossible (anything's possible) for people to have successfully dug a pit so deep into an existing island. When they discovered what appeared to be an obvious man-made opening in the ''lagoon'' was the 1st yet final detail that clinched it for me that the island had to have been built up around the pit. Will anything of any significance ever be found? Besides the occasional coin, bones, more coconut fiber, and timbers, , , ,I don't see how. However ''ANYTHING'S POSSIBLE''.
