In Australia, a “mysterious” ghost boat was thrown ashore. On April 27, the Victoria State Police announced this on their Facebook page.

The boat was found in the Warata bay. The police said that the “very strange” craft is covered with shells.

It was later revealed that the boat is the Saildrone research drone, one of three launched by the California company in 2019 in New Zealand to conduct scientific research in the southern hemisphere.

At the end of 2019, the ship’s signal was lost. Experts decided that he collided with an iceberg in the region of South America. But it turned out that the drone drifted for 18 months until it was thrown onto the Australian coast.

It is noted that the weight of the Saildrone drones is 450 kilograms, and the length is seven meters.

In July last year, it was reported that the international organization Global Fishing Watch accused China of nailing North Korean boats with dead fishermen to the shores of Japan. The appearance of such “ghost ships” off the coast of Japan has been observed for many years.
