Yeah, very efficent too. No engine or sails needed to make the trip! Of course a crew would need to have provisions on board for over a year.

That caught my attention too. 50 foot fishing boat made it across the Pacific in 12 months. I guess a classic "ghost ship" or "phantom"!

It looks like a chain or something is dangling off the bow into the water in the photo. Or else my eyes are just playing tricks on me. Anyone else see that?

It does look like a line hanging from the bow.

Maybe the crew is radioactive zombies waiting for the first naive sailor to come aboard for lunch! Or maybe they have already feasted on a few individuals and are looking for more!
