Scrappers would love to get their hands on the ghost ship valued at nearly $1 million — but they would have to get through the rats first..
Salvage hunters are keen to find the dilapidated 300-foot ghost ship that can carry 110 passengers because it is estimated to be worth nearly $1 million.
But once aboard, the scrappers will face unimaginable horror: a demented, disease-ridden population of rats that have been feeding on each other and breeding.
The ship was built in 1976 and primarily toured Antarctic waters. It was abandoned in a Canadian harbor in Sept. 2010 by its indebted owners.
In January of last year it was sold to the Dominican Republic for scrap, but the tow line broke while en route. After harnessing the ship again, the Canadian government elected to cut it loose in international waters, saying it posed no threat to other vessels or offshore oil drilling platforms.
