    This is a really great list. I really enjoyed reading it. I have heard of but a couple of these. I would like to learn more about them. I would like to learn the real reasons behind the ghost ships, instead of everyone writing them off to ufos or paranormal stuff. That gets very old.

    "….and after watching the celebrations, the man became overwhelmed with rage and jealousy and intentionally steered the boat into the deadly Goodwind Sands…."

    If everyone aboard died, how do we know? Sorry, couldn't resist asking :)

    "I would like to learn the real reasons behind the ghost ships"

    Mirage is one explanation. See here:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flying_Dutchman#Poss

    Another is our natural fascination with the mysterious, and that we like to scare ourselves.

    Great post!

      It’s by the surrealist painter George Grie. It’s called “The Flying Dutchman Phantom”.

    I have been doing this research for 25 years. One of many sites you could look up is mine. I sell a booklet and chart of the WRECKS AND DERELICTS IN THE NORTH ATLANTIC OCEAN 1887 THRU 1893. This gives the location,publication and destuction of these ships.

    FACTS ABOUT MARY CELESTE, LAST ENTRY INTO SHIPS LOG ON NOV 25 1872 LAT 36 DEGREES NORTH LONG 27 DEGREES WEST.ON THE DAY IT WAS SIGHTED DEC 5 1872 HER POSITION WAS 500 MILES FURTHER EAST.SHE WAS BETWEEN THE AZORES AND PORTUGAL.

    DID SHE GO INTO THE BURMUDA TRIANGLEHAVE A MAP IN FRONT OF ME THAT SAYS YES,SHE SKIRTED IT IN THE NORTH.BOARDER LINE HIT.

    NOW THIS STORY IS REALLY REMARKABLE WHY BECAUSE A SHIPWRECK IS A SHIPWREK IS A SHIPWRECK.THE TOTALLY INTERESTING SIDE STORY TO THIS ONE. A WRITER BY THE NAME OF DR ARTUR CONAN DOYLE(RING A BELL) INVENTED A CHARACTER IN THE ENGLISH HISTORY THAT YOU WILL RECOGNIZE SHERLOCK HOLMES. WELL BACK IN 1884 HE WROTE A STORY ABOUT THIS SHIP AND REACHED THE ATTENSION OF MANY PEOPLE. NOW HIS CUP OF TEA IS MYSTERY RIGHT TO THIS DAY THE MARY CELESTE HAS MORE ATTENSION FROM HIS WRITING ABOUT THEN ANY OTHER SHIPWRECK. HIS INVOLVEMENT INTO THIS THEATER OF A NAUTICAL ADVENTURE TURNED THE HEADS OF THE WONDERING PUBLIC MORE SO THEN NORMAL

    YOU ENJOY PERHAPS THE STORY OR THE SAGA OF THIS ADVENTURE EITHER WAY BLAME HIM NOT THE STORY IT IS THE TELLING OF THE STORY . DEEP MYSTERY OF COURSE THAT IS HOW HE WROTE IT JUST LIKE SHERLOCK HOLMES. ONE HUNDRED YEARS LATER STILL TALKING ABOUT IT . SOME WHERE HE IS LOOKING DOWN ON US AND SMILING WHILE DRINKING HIS CUP OF TEA.

    I think I know what happen to the crew of the Mary Celeste

    when you say DID SHE GO INTO THE BURMUDA TRIANGLE HAVE A MAP IN FRONT OF ME THAT SAYS YES,SHE SKIRTED IT IN THE NORTH.BOARDER LINE HIT.

    everything seem normal when they did sail in to Burmuda Triangle Mary Celeste must sail right into a certain area of the burmuda triangle there was kind of a white void that Mary Celeste sail right into the void by accdent .

    Now I do think that the Burmuda triangle must have made the Mary Celeste to reapper where it was

    found but with out the crew and the crew is now in the void in the burmuda trangle

    The explanations of Mary Caleste is so strange but I guess It's quite scientific.

    The leaking alcohol theory washed up and gone, if the want to prove that one to be true everything has to be exact not using gas, flame and paper cubes, use the right type of barrels, alcohol and space, temps everything exact then prove it.
    Until then it is still unsolved.

    I find it all very interesting lost ships, ghost ships, lost treasures I love it all.

    Your information about the Valencia is not entirely accurate. She was wrecked off the coast of Vancouver Island at Cape Beale and Pacheena point (within the Pacific Graveyard). The Captain miscalculated the directions and took them on the wrong path. They hit as low as 20-30 fathoms before the Captain tried to change course, by then it was too late. The Valencia caught on rocks and reef and was stuck between cliffs as high as 100 feet. There was no assistance by men on land or rescue crews on water. It was estimated that there were approx 130-180 passengers, but the Valencia was liceensed for 286 passengers. Check out the book ‘The Valencia Tragedy’ by Michael C Neitzel for a ton more info on the Valencia and other ships which parished int he Pacific Graveyard.
