A Ghost Ship

I've posted on message-in-a-bottle stories and other somewhat similar situations here before. I (and presumably a few other pirate radio listeners) have a fascination with the mysterious and seemingly untrackable. I mean, in a world where China is developing AI-based software to track and imprison people based on the appearance of their faces and even determine what emotions those people are feeling, I think it's encouraging that a 580'-long 26,500-ton ship can go unreported for the past 13 years. 

It would have been something if someone had installed a shortwave transmitter on the ship with a power source and a high-capacity MP3 player full of programming. Or maybe the Old-Time Radio Unidentified station was actually a ghost ship floating around in one of the Great Lakes for all of its time on the air? 😀

Here's the link for the recently spotted ghost ship that, to the best of my knowledge, does not contain a pirate transmitter:
