I wonder why someone with a backhoe doesn't just dig a wide sloping trench to the bottom, even if the water comes up a guy in scuba gear wouldn't have much further to go. If you owned the backhoe your biggest expense would be gas and your time. For an actual treasure, I think I'd give it a shot. Of course if the treasure has already been retrieved, best to just keep it a mystery to the tax man.

Any suggestions as to who else, at that time could build something so complex, on such a grand scale?
Better yet, why?
The fact that even with modern technology, we can't seem to figure it out is mind boggling to me.

Hmmm...coconut fibers naturally concurring in Nova Scotia....who would have thought.
I was more referring to the alleged 'money pit' and the engineering that is attributed to it.

It's not like these guys were the most trustworthy folks to begin with.
I truly feel that the two brothers trying to solve the mystery are going to find something,
