Burma Solves Mystery of 580-Foot 'Ghost Ship'

2018-09-01 19:35
A 580-feet long, 18,000 tonne, "ghost ship" baffled authorities in Burma after it drifted on to the shore with no crew or goods on board. The Sam Ratulangi PB 1600's last recorded location was off the coast of Taiwan in 2009, but it mysteriously appeared drifting along in Burmese waters earlier this week, before running aground on Aug. 30. On Sept. 1, the Burmese Navy announced they had solved the mystery. Burmese authorities had been monitoring the ship since it was spotted earlier in the week.
