Russian Ghost ship in the Atlantic M.V. LYUBOV ORLOVA

The Canadians certainly covered themselves in glory with this one

The LYUBOV ORLOVA is 328 feet in length with a 53 foot beam and a draft of 15 feet. Normal passenger capacity as an expedition ship was 110 passengers. She is now drifting around the North Atlantic as a ghost ship on a final cruise, with no one aboard. Destination unknown.

Round Ireland crews take note!

I thought that it sank?

It's not Ghost Ships the Round Irelanders want to watch out for, it tonymac and his motley crew lurking in the coves around Tory.

And me, I'll be "inspecting" the fleet at Killybegs. Bet they'll be so tired then, they'll not miss the odd thing here and there....
