However, he ended up selling the company to CMS Energy later in 1995 for $60 million.
It was after this sale that he and his brother developed some interest in the Oak Island located in Canada. The famous theory that the island had several hidden treasures was behind the two brothers’ interest to explore the island.
In their endeavor to know more, they went further to read about the Restall family’s efforts to search for the so-called “Money Pit.” The information was contained in the 1965’s issue of Reader’s Digest magazine. This led their interest to Oak Island Tours, which reportedly owns most of the island.
It was while they pursued their interest that they were approached by Prometheus Entertainment. The request was that they agree to do a reality show that centered on their activities. They agreed to the request and soon the two became the stars of the reality TV series The Curse of Oak Island: Drilling Down. The series premiered in Canada on the History Network on 5th January 2014.
Later, they changed roles and became even the executive producers of the show. They were then producing as well as starring in the show even as they continued with their treasure hunt adventure.
The reality show TV star also had an interest in growing grapes for wines. This he did by use of green energy and the provision of extra light and warmth through tunnels. Out of this, he ended up establishing a winery. This became a great success which saw him producing royal wine that is used all over the United States of America.
Furthermore, the treasure hunter also owns a large wind turbine company. His company is believed to be the largest in the state of Michigan.
