Kayakers discover this 110 year old abandoned ship. It is full of plant life but is still sound enough to explore. It seemed like it had been sitting there for years.

Little did they know about the amazing history of this ship….

Like the fact that, many years ago it was used as a sight-seeing vessel in NY
Little%20did%20they%20know%2C%20the%20ship%20has%20quite%20the%20unusual%20past.%20Many%20years%20ago%2C%20it%20was%20used%20as%20a%20sight-seeing%20vessel%20in%20New%20York%20City%u2026

Or that it was re-purposed to fight TWO world wars.

It%20was%20also%20repurposed%20to%20fight%20in%20both%20World%20Wars%u2026

How about the fact that it was used for scientific experiments by Thomas Edison.

Thomas%20Edison%20once%20used%20the%20ship%20once%20for%20scientific%20experiments%20in%20communications%20technology.

Oh, and it made a cameo in Madonna’s “Papa Don’t Preach” video

It%20even%20had%20a%20cameo%20in%20Madonna%u2019s%20%u201CPapa%20Don%u2019t%20Preach%u201D%20music%20video.

It was taken out of comission and transported to a tributary near land that belonged to the ship’s owner. It has rested there ever since.

This%20old%20rope%20still%20holds%20the%20ghost%20ship%20in%20place.
