Kayakers Discover a 110-Year-Old
Abandoned Ghost Ship
You’re out with your friends, who also enjoy kayaking. You decide to head out onto the Ohio River for a peaceful day out on the water, but then you discover something that you didn’t even know existed.
That’s what happened when these kayakers came across an abandoned ghost ship that was 110 years old. It was in a tributary just off the Ohio River. The photos are cool, but what’s more incredible is the history of this ship, and the things it has seen before its current resting place. Check these photos out.
As they got closer, they decided to get out and take a closer look. It turned out to be a very old ship. Even though it was very old, it was still strong enough to support them while they explored it.
But after a little bit of research, this ship actually has quite the history. Not too long ago, it was used as a sight-seeing vessel in New York City.
It was also used to fight in both World Wars.
Thomas Edison once used the ship for scientific experiments in communications technology. Then, in the late 1980s, the ship was taken out of commission, and transported to a tributary near land that belonged to the ship’s owner. It has rested there ever since.
Clancy's comment: What a great old girl. She deserves to be at rest.
