A mysterious and ghostly shipwreck has washed up on the coast of Newfoundland, baffling and exciting residents with its sudden appearance.

The hull of the wooden ship appeared along the shoreline near Cape Ray, a tiny community on the southwest coast of Newfoundland, earlier this month — an area known to be the final resting site of at least eight other ships that fell victim to bad weather over the years.

Now, the provincial government is sending a team to investigate the wreck and hopefully identify and preserve what remains, but the team is at the mercy of the same weather and tides that might have played a part in the ship’s demise.

Visuals of the wreck point to the ship being quite old. Wooden dowels used as nails have led many to believe the boat was constructed in the 1800s. Copper pegs have also been spotted in the photographs of the ship, which were a common construction method from that time.
