Lost 81 years ago, the Baychimo is a real life ghost ship of the Northwest territories and Alaska. In 1931, this Hudson Bay Company steel cargo ship was thoroughly stuck in an ice pack. The crew was ready to wait out the winter in a makeshift camp set up nearby, but on the night of November 24 a violent blizzard hit and there was no sign of the ship when weather cleared. it was assumed the Baychimo had sunk in the storm.
Just a few days later, it was spotted floating over seventy kilometres away. the ship was stripped of its valuables and expected to sink in the winter. But over the following decades, there have been dozens of sightings of the ship still drifting along the Northwest coast, all salvage attempts failed, one of which had a group trapped on-board for over a week due to an unexpected storm.
The last sighting was in1969, and it is unknown what ultimately became of the Baychimo.
