<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Australian rescuers were on Friday trying to solve the "Mary Celeste" style mystery of a yacht found floating off the coast with its engine running, food on its table ready to eat, but no crew.</td>

This is strange, cool and creepy!<br><br>

I am absolutely fascinated by the concept of derelict buildings and vessels - there is an abandoned mansion in Columbia, which I believe was owned by the Escobars, which has been "reclaimed" by the jungle. I love that stuff!

When I first read the article it made me think of that '80s horror/suspense film <i>Dead Calm</i> with Nicole Kidman, Sam Niell and Billy Zane. Scary as Hell!

An undocumented hurricane washed them overboard?<br><br>
Possible suicide? How many people would have been on a boat like that?

There were 3 people. Friends, I think. A hurricane would have tossed the boat about, and the tables were neatly set, dishes in place. Maybe it is a hoax?<br>
How odd. I

I saw an interview with a friend or family member of one or more of the men. She said they were hoping it was just a case of them forgetting to anchor the boat down properly and that it had drifted away.
