SS Baychimo: known as the Ghost Ship of the Arctic

Recommended Posts

Manwon Lender

The SS Baychimo is a 1,322-ton cargo ship that became trapped in an ice floe in 1931. The crew soon abandoned the ship, but the unmanned vessel continued to be sighted floating off the Alaskan coast for the next four decades. By October 15, the ship remained locked in the ice off the coast of Wainwright. They subsequently airlifted 15 of the crew to safety. The captain and 14 other crew members who remained made a temporary wooden shelter on the ice near the stranded ship. Then on the morning November 25 1931 their worst fears came true. The ship vanished, no doubt sunk by the preceding blizzard. The remaining crew made their way back to civilization, and this should have been the end of the story, however it was only the beginning!!!!!!!
