A certain bit of present-day mythology has inspired me to ask about ghost ships or what might be called Unidentified Sailing Objects.
I checked on Ghost ship (Wikipedia), and it had a lot of entries on real abandoned ships. I checked on its "Folklore, legends and mythology" section, and after two undated entries are some ghost ships recorded from the eighteenth century, the Lady Lovibond, the Ghost Ship of Northumberland Strait, and the most famous one of all, the Flying Dutchman (Wikipedia).
I find it hard to believe that people only started seeing ghost ships in the 18th cy., but I don't know where to look for older ghost-ship lore. It would be interesting to find out how far back ghost ships go. My guess would be to when people started building ships with sails large enough to be seen from several mi / km.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
