Ghost Ship?

You don’t hear much about Ghost Ships nowadays.  But here is a story about one. 

It was first spotted on Friday by a Coastwatch surveillance aircraft in the Gulf of Carpentaria, about 180 kilometres south-west of Weipa.

The federal government is under pressure to explain why an abandoned tanker was left to drift in the Gulf of Carpentaria for two weeks after authorities first spotted it.

SALVAGE operators are set to tow the abandoned tanker found drifting in Australian waters to the far north Queensland port of Weipa.
