    Someone should instal a solar powered LED light on it so it is less of a hazard at night.

      It’s ok people it’s the former oba/UBP ship after the election. I hear they are looking for quality candidates….. but as you see for yourself why the PEOPLE aren’t joining.

      • facts of the rock says:

        actually that just plp propaganda,it’s the plp/biu that’s adrift in the world devoid of human life!

      • Wahoo says:

        Well if they cann’t get quality candidates and we KNOW plp don’t have any quality candidates then the whole island is adrift.

        Perhaps it’s one of those crypto currency exchange platforms. Loaded with gold ballast.

      • Question says:

        Maybe it’s where they’ll set up those chicken farms.

    • andre says:

  3. Real Deal says:

    wow very dangerous because that would not show up on radar if you are using autopilot. this is why someone has to be at the helm at all times.

    • Bob says:

      You’re right there. That’s why it’s so “high” in the water.

  6. Spotty says:

    What she be is de good ship lollipop yo!!

  7. Arthur - Atlanta says:

    Why not install a GPS type tracker on it like they have for tracking ‘Lydia’ the great white shark.
    That way if it keeps coming closer to the island, we can have it removed from our waters and help prevent a maritime disaster.

  8. Triangle Drifter says:

    A passing warship should deal with it. A few shots in the right places with a 50cal will take care of it.

  9. Spotty says:

    Maybe we need a get some big ol’ rockets If she get too close. Sink dat poc

  10. Kim Smith says:

    Is someone going to be responsible for moving this quite significant hazard?
