Marty is Rick’s younger brother and has always looked up to him. Even though he’s shared Rick’s interest in Oak Island since childhood, he’s a bit skeptical that anything was ever really buried there. He wants verifiable proof that major works were done on the island prior to the first treasure hunt in 1795 and also worries that Rick could fall victim to the obsession with the island like so many before him. Nevertheless, it is Marty who is primarily financing this adventure. He’s an engineer who has made millions in the energy business and now wants his older brother to realize his dream, too.
