SS Baychimo, Ghost Ship of the Artic: The Boat that Sailed Unmanned for 38 Years
The Baychimo was spotted numerous times over the next few decades. People attempted to board it; however, every time they tried, a violent storm would hit them from nowhere, or ice floes would suddenly surround the ship. The towlines of the vessel often snapped due to rough seas, jagged ice, and sometimes, for no apparent reason at all. It was said that a few people have died while trying to embark on the boat; hence, the Baychimo earned the reputation as a cursed vessel and a bad omen.
Sailors have changed course and fled whenever they sighted it since 1939. That same year, though, the Baychimo seemed to vanish into the cold Arctic. Some people believed that it had finally sunk.
However, 23 years later, a group of Inuits saw it again. Wherever it had gone, no one knows.
The ship was subsequently sighted several more times until 1969 when a report came that it was caught in a pack of ice. When a salvage party came to investigate the report, the vessel had disappeared once again.
No one had seen the Baychimo since. People believed that the seas finally claimed the ship this time, but no trace of the vessel’s wreckage was ever found.
In 2006, the Alaskan government expressed their intentions of searching for the wreck. So far, they found nothing. It seemed the Baychimo just vanished from the face of the earth.
What happened to this mysterious vessel? If the seas finally claimed it, how come there were no traces of the wreckage? If the seas finally claimed it, how come there were no traces of its wreckage? Until it reappears or someone finds the shipwreck, nobody will know what happened to the SS Baychimo.
