It has been a couple of weeks since we have been back and I am still combing though video, photos and data we acquired. I know that some of you want a definitive answer on our search results but that will take much more time. The reason is that although we found “the” slab, we did not find the rows and rows of remains we had hoped to locate. As you may not know, the original slab that was allegedly poured over the passengers & crew of the Hawaii Clipper in 1938 was broken up by the land owner in 1983/84 and used as fill for a much larger but shallower slab of which a house now resides.
As you can see, this was no small attempt and after two days of digging, we nearly went 4-5 feet in nearly every part of the house. YES, we found clothing. Yes, we found material that COULD be bone or could be calcified coral. I personally don’t want to take any chances and toss something aside as being nothing when it could be something. So, the verdict is still out. Jeff and I, with a HUGE help from Bill, Tony, Myron, Felix and Larry, accomplished what many thought was nearly impossible.
Over the next couple of months, we will being releasing our findings as well as videos of what we found and what still remains. I cannot begin to thank each and every person who helped get us there with their prayers and financial support.. you are all excellent! Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks and we share more about this very exciting journey.
