Only if you eat lots and lots of bran.
I've seen lots of logs
n stuff but haven't seen a floating container... maybe they only come out at night... I once ran into a palm tree and on another occasion saw one in Bass Strait... hardly palm tree country.
I do know of two (empty) lifeboats turning up in 'Straya after having been abandoned of S Africa
( ex Heythrop , they reckon it had done maybe 3 circumnavigations) and Tristan da Cunha ( ex Oliva a cupla years back).
Lots of stuff out there that goes bump in the night..
Re the OP if its on the beach it isn't yours to help yourself to, check what happened to them as helped 'emselves to MSC Napoli's cargo.
