You may have heard something about this, 'Rat Infested Ghost Ship About to Hit UK'. According to the article, the ship was last seen in March of 2013 and based on currents and whatnot, they think it should be close to the shore. It seems very strange to me that they could predict the movement of a ship some ten months in the future, but what do I know? Also, how hard is it find a 1500 ton ship on the ocean? Apparently very hard. The ship has hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of salvage, so there is plenty of reason to find it again.
And that's not even counting the threat of cannibal rats!
