An abandoned lifeboat at world’s end

Via A Blast from the Past:

The unidentified whaler or ship's lifeboat found abandoned on Bouvet Island on 2 April 1964. The boat bore no identifying marks. There were signs that survivors might have made it to shore, but no trace of them has ever been found.

  1. Hmm. You or Netherwerks (or both) should do a post about an abandoned worldboat at life's end.

  2. @C'Nor: ...an abandoned worldboat at life's end? Yeah. That sounds like something that we can work with...we'll add this to the pile on the desk. Interesting twist. Thanks!
