No, we're not talking the kind of ghostly galleon Johnny Depp might pick a fight with. Ghost ship is also a term used to describe boats found adrift with their crew mysteriously missing or dead. And there have been plenty of those. Most famous is the Mary Celeste, found floating with full cargo in the hold but no crew and no explanations in 1872. The weather was fine and the crew experienced seamen who simply... disappeared. Explanations range from a seaquake to piracy, and of course sea monsters, UFOs and haunted ships.

In the early 1920s, my mother was returning from a stay in St Kitts/Nevis on a ship in the Sargasso Sea when the passengers were ordered below. She always said that she saw a sea serpent of some
sort as she peered through a port hole. Her account always seemed genuine enough to us as adult offspring. Who really knows what is down there in the depths of the oceans?
