Awesome story. I've never actually heard anyone tell a story of seeing a ghost ship, aside from the occasional show on the History Channel and
whatnot. As someone already said you told your story very well and I did have the visual imagery of it happening in my head as I read your post.
What part of the country are you in exactly? I live in southern New Jersey and we have some pretty historic spots here along the Delaware River when
it comes to the Revolutionary War. Philadelphia alone is filled with ghosts from the Revolution. There's also a place I grew up near called Red
Bank Battlefield. It's right along the Delaware and its a park now. They still have some cannons and cannon balls, statues, etc.
Unfortunately (or maybe not), I have never personally witnessed a ghost or anything of that nature. For someone like myself who is so interested in
the paranormal, as well as the extra terrestrial, you would think that I've had seen something by now that spurred my interest. But to this day
I've yet to see anything. I guess that's why they say faith is believing in that which you cannot see.
Once again, great story. You'll never be called crazy by anyone here on ATS. And even if you are it will come from a small, absent-minded minority
so you should just ignore it and not be discouraged. You mentioned in your first post that you have had some other ghostly encounters. We'd love to
hear your stories. Try and break it up into paragraphs this time as its easier to read! Thanks in advance, and welcome to ATS!
