The captain looked out into the night, the stars and moon illuminating the deck in a dull white light. The sea lapped gently at the side of the ship. Staring out at that black water, the sea was almost beckoning to come and explore its mystery. The captain checked his timepiece; 11:00pm. The crew snored in a sleepy chorus beneath the deck. Their mission was to discourage piracy in the Carribean. The Crown was engaged in a decades long war with the French, and the Empire needed the flow of cotton, rum and sugar to remain uninterrupted in order to supply the royal navy and the Empire's citizens. The captain was lost in thought when a yellow lantern light flashed out across the inky water. "Pirates," he thought. Quickly, the crew was roused and the ropes ran through their pulleys until the night air caught the sails and the ship began it's trek out to the source of the light. Onwards, the bow cut through the water like a knife, the ship creaking as it snuck, like a cat slowly closing in on a mouse. The captain extended his telescope, the light remained unmoving and constant through his lens, not flickering like a flame. What was it? Closer and closer they came, the light becoming brighter and brighter. The captain no longer needed his telescope to observe this yellow orb of light, radiating a few feet above the surface of the water. The crew crowded the starboard side of the ship, leaning against the rail. The light captivated the men, captain and crew. Suddenly, the ship jerked to a stop. The orb climbed high above the ship, the men stared. The light got brighter and brighter. A tear worked its way down the captain's cheek as realization dawned on him. Then black. The light was gone. The crew had disappeared. ... Three hundred years later, a fishing vessel reeled in its large trawling nets. One of the nets became stuck on something on the ocean floor. They kept reeling and the tension suddenly gave way, the net coming back up to the surface. Inside the net they found an old wooden pulley. They called the coastguard and marked the spot on GPS. The coastguard sent a ship with divers to inspect the area for a possible wreck. After pinging their sonar twice, the sailors noticed the silohuette of what looked like a large sunken ship.
