    If it is a UFO it'll take it a long time to get back to its home star system at 4 knots.

    Sounds like a spoof of some kind. I got a DSC Mayday off the Chilean coast during the summer. I didn't respond as I was in Carrickfergus at the time.

    Interesting, there are 45 vessels with MMSI 333333333 dotted around the world. I found one near India and another near Singapore. A quick look shows misc. lengths, call signs and types (Fishing, Pleasure Craft, NATO warship etc.). Not a lot in common and also different speeds shown.

    It is still going south at 4 knots and 191 degrees. Do you think it will run out of fuel sometime soon?

    Looking at its track over the last 24 hours it has done an impressive cross country passage over some of the most beautiful mountains in North Wales.

    This the one?



    Isn't coming up with a "received from" station so might be software generated somewhere?

    Clearly the anchor has failed. What make was it ? Was it chain or a rope rode ?

    Well it has morphed from T2 now to TEST3 same mmsi number but different call sign...... Following the identical heading that T2 was on....
