The other day I started watching a documentary on the Mary Celeste, and why the well-stocked and sea-worthy ship was found abandoned in 1872.
They trumpeted that the mystery was finally solved, but then I fell asleep and missed it, and although the Internet is full of details and theories
about the Mary Celeste, I never found that again.
The latest I could find (from last year, or 2018) was a theory (not proof) that the water pumps got clogged with soot, and the few feet of water made
the crew abandon ship.
That sounds more silly than any of the previous theories.
If that's the latest theory, I'd rather say they all went swimming as a team-building exercise, and only too late did they discover nobody let down a
"I thought you were going to do it!"
"No ways, it was your job dude."
"Flip bro, if it wasn't for that bull shark hanging on my ankle, I'd so kick your butt right now!"
And there the ship sails away.
A bit like Open Waters II
, as I imagine.
Well, here a link with more background and what I could find presented as the latest "evidence" (which isn't evidence at all, but is there ever really
evidence when documentary channels promise this nowadays?)
Any thoughts on whether this theory is feasible, and your favorite theory on the mystery?
