Arrived in Truk Lagoon on Tuesday and quickly departed the following morning to investigate a lead as to where the slab in question was located.
By mid day, we believe we have finally found the elusive slab! That’s right! You heard it right. WE FOUND THE SLAB!
Now, after several days of negotiating with the local villagers, we have received permission to break open the slab and look for human remains. Every adventure is not without its obstacles, however. In 1964, the slab was freely open to the jungle air. Now, 50 years later, we found a house built upon the slab.
Our next step will involve transporting a jack hammer, a generator, fuel, shovels and picks by boat to the site to begin demolishing the floor/slab, with a promise to the homeowner to repair the damage. Additionally, we will also have to hire manpower for the massive dig.
Stay tuned for an update in a couple days where we will finally answer if the legend is true that the passengers and crew of The Lost Clipper were buried here on this remote island in 1938.
