The waters off the west coast of Ireland can be wild at the best of times. So when an unusual boat was spotted bobbing about aimless on the ocean in November 2016, onlookers were deeply concerned for any passengers that might have been trapped inside. As a result, a rescue crew set out to recover the vessel and bring it to dry land. But when the team got inside the boat, they were shocked to discover that no one was on board.
