Off the coast of Africa (Western Northern side, Western Sahara) you can see two big cargo ships one that has washed up on the shore and the other about a 100yrds in the water
one is at 27 26 12 n 13 15 35 w
and the other is right off the shore at 27 26 25 n 13 15 57 w

Now the interesting thing is that....
1. It's desert
2. the closest civilization is 20 some odd miles a way at 27 09 N 13 11 14 W that would be quite a truck to get to that town let a lone know where it's at.

Wonder how long they've been there

Could this be the skeleton coast? - Click, and Click

There are lots and lots of big ships, out in the desert just stranded there. Could you find it on google maps and post a pic? Google Maps

Xeros,
Close but no cigar. Namibia (the country to which you refer to) is at the southern end of Africa. My pics are up on the northern side just below where the Canary Islands are.

It's pretty cool looking at these ships from a thousand foot up in the air. If you go to that link that you provided for Google maps and plug in those cordinates you'll see the ship(s) and more if you travel northward.

Oh wow that's cool, I did'nt realise the coordinates worked on 'Google maps'

They are very close to each other. I wonder if the one on the shore hit the one out at sea and got washed up? It's so far from any civilisation that I wonder how/if they got to help. Maybe there's a shipping channel across there or frequent bad weather conditions? I'll try to see what I can find.

Edit - actually there is a city not too far south of there, so I suppose it's not too isolated.

There's an aircraft carrier in waiting just south west of that point. Click

Nice!

Exploring those coasts I found another one, more to the South, in Mauritania.
Check it
