Ghost Ship

I always knew we have a lot of ghost ships, the ships that got lost in the ocean or whose team for some reason abandoned it

but in my mind I always thought those are little ships, more like fish boats and definitely not as big as Antonia Graza in one of my favourite movies Ghost Ship




meet Lyubov Orlova
the picture was obviously taken when her position was still known

now she is lost

sooooooooooooooooooooooomewheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere in the Atlantic Ocean believed to be next to Ireland

filled with rats

you do imagine the amount of rats that can fit into that pretty big ship, don't you?


the thing about rats are rumours, but there is still some truth in any rumour :)

The tug Charlene Hunt, owned by American tug operator Hunt Marine, was contracted to tow the ship; however, one day after leaving the dock, the tow line parted. The crew of the tugboat tried unsuccessfully to reconnect the line, hampered by 35 kilometres per hour (22 mph) winds and 3 metres (9.8 ft) waves.
long story short: they lost her


in 2013 Ireland got the distress signal from her

activated distress signal usually means, that the ship is sinking or already sunk

they tried to find her using the signal

but the searches were unsuccessful and the physical evidence, that Lyubov Orlova sunk is missing

so there is still a possibility that she is casually drifting in the Ocean :)

probably with this song from Ghost Ship playing non stop for the rats :)

and for your information Lyubov Orlova was a Russian actress

people called her Russian Marlene Dietrich
