Jian Seng

Definition: The Jian Seng was an 80-metre tanker of unknown origin that was spotted drifting 180 km south-west of Weipa, Queensland in the Gulf of Carpentaria by an Australian Coastwatch aeroplane in 2006. Photographs were taken and analysed at the Australian Customs Service, which dispatched a patrol boat immediately.

 

A lot of illegal activity goes on in the world's oceans, from illegal fishing to human trafficking. So, when mysterious ships of unknown origin turn up, they're automatically suspicious. The Jian Seng is just one such ship, spotted drifting into uncharted waters near Queensland, Australia in 2006, but once Australian Customs officials boarded the ship they couldn't find evidence of recent human activity at all. In fact, the ship had been stripped, with its name and identifying features painted over, and contained nothing but a large amount of rice. Ultimately, since no owner could be found, the ship was intentionally sunken.
