The Flying Dutchman
The most famous of ghost ships The Flying Dutchman, which hit rocks and sunk during a heavy storm in 1641. The phantom ship of legend appears during stormy weather off the Cape of Good Hope, at Africa's southern tip. It is feared by mariners as an omen of disaster, and they say that if you look at the ship you will die a horrible death.

When the Dutch ship was sinking the Captain of the vessel, van der Decken (who knew his death was looming) shouted out "I WILL round this Cape even if I have to keep sailing until doomsday!". The ghost ship has been reported many times, even by the crew of a German submarine boat during World War II. On 11 July 1881, the Royal Navy ship, the Bacchante sighted the phantom. The midshipman, a prince who later became King George V, recorded that the lookout and the officer of the watch had seen the Flying Dutchman.

"A strange red light as of a phantom ship all aglow, in the midst of which light the mast, spars and sails of a brig 200 yards distant stood out in strong relief."

It was reported that the lookout fell from a mast and died, shortly after seeing the phantom ship.

Whahahahaha, my ghostships are scary! :raf:

Creepy. Was that the ship's name before it sank? Cause if it was, that's a strange name.

A Flying Dutchman??
Nah, me ship's not ghostly. It just flies. How, I don't rightly know, but it does. ::)

the ship was called the flying dutchman. The captain itself was probably a pirate too. After his disappearing the dutch searched his house and found all kind of gold and silver objects of high value.

and a wiki about this story:

He ends up as a barker (is that what you call them? ???) for Planet Threepwood on Jambalaya Island.

You can also play a ping pong game with Murray as the ball in the fourth game. XD

But that icarus didn't have a ship to fly to the sun.

I was in Latin class earlier today and the professor was going over how the Greeks would get captured and taken as slaves. Anyway, she mentioned something about pirate raids and I almost burst out laughing at a very inappropriate time. :suffer:
