Maybe it was the SS Snowflake and they all leaped to their death after Trump won....
Mystery solved, it was being towed-
The large, empty and rusty container vessel, Sam Ratulangi PB 1600, had been discovered by fishermen off Myanmar's commercial capital.
The navy now say the freighter was being towed by a tugboat headed to a ship-breaking factory in Bangladesh.
However, the crew abandoned the ship after being caught up in bad weather.
Authorities and navy personnel had boarded the Sam Ratulangi PB 1600 on Thursday to search for clues after it ran aground on a beach.
Riddle of 'mystery ghost ship' solved
Sure takes all the fun out of it, though.
And I was hoping for something like, you know, a cemetery full of Chinese hopping vampires in the cargo hold. Oh well.
There should be more ghost ships in the oceans.
Just imagine for a moment being out there in the endless infinity of the trans oceans, solid land a mere memory, and then coming upon another ship over a football field in length. You and a small, unarmed crew board the derelict vessel, middle of the night with rolling waves crashing over her decks, and find no sign of human life. You wind your way deep down into the hold, down into the low ceilinged metallic bulkhead darkness, away from the salt stinging air and realize: you're not alone in the cavernous darkness after all . . .
The Flying Dutchman lives.
Makes the plot more interesting. Okay then. We'll allow our intrepid boarding party to discover a weapons cabinet stocked with say . . . two submachine guns and a pump shotgun, however, there's only one half full magazine for the SMGs, and two rounds for the shotgun. Oh, and a couple of spear guns, but only one of them is loaded.
