Creepy sailing stories?

Hi, I was on another board about the outdoors and it has a really interesting thread with creepy outdoors stories. People posted everything form being stalked by cougars, psychos in the woods, to their , ghost, big foot and other weird creature encounters. I imagine people here must have a ton of such stories from the nautical perspective as well. I would love to hear them.

Re: Creepy sailing stories?

There is nothing creepy about, on or in the sea...
The creepiest and weirdest things you might encounter are humans...

That's one of the things I like about being out on the water away from people, nothing creepy.

Re: Creepy sailing stories?

I was sailing at night, alone and exhausted in rough seas earlier this year and I passed close to a lobster trap buoy. I caught the stick of the buoy bobbing up and down out of the corner of my eye and for a second, enough time for my heart to race, I thought it was an arm reaching out of the water for me. But the only creepiness was my imagination.

You mean the time the sharknado hit and then we had a zombie apocalypse? Zombie's can't swim, can they?

Re: Creepy sailing stories?

Many years ago sailing at night in the med on someone elses boat. I was on watch alone on a beautiful night so turned the nav lights off and all other lights so I could see the stars.
Suddenly from off the side of the boat in the water two electric green torpedoes streaked towards me and I braced for the detonation (as I jumped a meter in the air from shock) both torpedoes went under the boat as I gently freaked out. They turned around the other side of the boat and 2 dolphins surfaced together. Damn bio luminescence! It was so thick there you couldnt see the dolphins, just their shapes underwater.

It is a fact that they can't. I am hooked on the walking dead tv series, and I always said if this were to happen I would live on a boat, and only come ashore for supplies.

Re: Creepy sailing stories?

There was this one time, we were anchored out in the Bahamas, near the Bermuda triangle, eating lobster we had caught. My wife had eaten all of her lobster already, but I had like two bites left when I went down in the cabin to get another beer. When I came back up, my lobster was gone. I asked my wife what happened to it and she didn't know. We never did find out where it went. That was creepy.

Re: Creepy sailing stories?

I went sailing yesterday and all the Chardonnay disappeared! We still have no idea what happened.
