MYSTIC, Conn. - Specialists in paranormal research are investigating whether a historic whaling ship might be home to the ghost of a long-ago seafarer.
A five-member team from the Rhode Island Paranormal Research group visited Mystic Seaport on Friday night to spend time on the Charles W. Morgan, a wooden whaling ship where several visitors have reported seeing the apparition.
The 165-year-old craft made 37 ocean voyages in search of whales during the 60 years it was in use. About 1,000 men worked on the Morgan over those decades.
The Rhode Island Paranormal Research Group became interested in the Morgan after receiving reports from three different groups of people about the apparition.
The visitors said that while touring the ship last summer, they saw a man in what appeared to be 19th-century clothing working below deck. They said the man, who had a pipe in his mouth, nodded at them but did not speak.
When they went returned to the main deck and asked a museum interpreter what the man was doing, they were told that no one was down below and that no one was assigned to be on the boat that day.
He said that he also received about 40 other reports of possible paranormal activity before those groups related their experiences.

I can remember hearing about a labourer working in a cellar in York (UK), fixing a gas pipe or something. He turned round and saw a legion of romans marching through the cellar, but they were all knee high. On reporting his find an archeologist checked out the seller and found an old roman road a foot or so under the cellar floor.. makes you wonder!
I know it has nothing to do with this thread but still an interesting story
