Zebrina

Definition: Zebrina was a schooner-rigged, three-masted sailing barge, of 189 tons, built in 1873 at Whitstable, originally intended to trade in the River Plate. She was discovered aground on the coast of France in October 1917 with her crew missing.

 

Yet another ship found without its crew was the Zebrina, a 3-masted sailing barge that left a port in Southern England in October 1917 with a cargo hold full of coal bound for Saint-Brieuc, France. When the ship was found in France aground and abandoned but in good shape two days later, it seemed that some kind of conflict related to World War I was to blame - like perhaps the threat of gunfire from a German submarine like the one pictured above. Did the U-boat that threatened the Zebrina force the crew on board, and then retreat when it spotted an Allied ship nearby? Perhaps - some people believe that this hypothetical submarine was later sunken itself, hence the fact that Zebrina's crew was never seen again.
