The brothers are helped by island residents Dan and Dave Blankenship, who have also been searching for the treasure for years.
Theories investigated include links to the Knights Templar, Aztec treasure, Shakespeare and even Nazi gold.
The brothers tend to concentrate on a specific theory for a few weeks and see if they can get any further than their predecessors. So for instance they have divers down various shafts in attempts to explore what’s at the bottom.
