Ghosts on the ships, secret doomed

London psychiatrist Arthur Roberts, author of "The Secret code of the heart", produced his recently published book of the same sensation as the resuscitation of the U.S. Raymond Moody, who wrote many years ago, his bestseller about life after death. In 2007, Roberts finished testing 275 patients who underwent heart transplant surgery, and came to the conclusion that this is the body inhabits the soul, which controls the activity of the brain has traditionally been considered the main control center of the body. Feelings and thoughts — they are encoded in the cells of the heart, and it leads them. The soul — is cellular memory of the heart that the transplant it to another person goes to him not just as a "motor", and with all your previously accumulated "baggage."

Super modern Nazi battleship "Scharnhorst" even less fortunate. Being unfinished just before half, he already mysteriously turned into a dry dock. With more than a hundred workers were crushed to death and another two hundred were seriously injured.

"Scharnhorst" was returned to its original position, put in chains and reinforced beams. Every detail checked a dozen artists, but the next troubles could not be avoided. Frames bent in an incredible way, beams and rigging frustrated and maimed people. The leaders of the shipyard had to increase the fee even shipbuilders so they do not run away, and those who are not enticed by higher wages, forced to continue to work at gunpoint.

On the day of the battleship descent to the water in the harbor came Adolf Hitler himself. In his presence on board the "Scharnhorst" was broken symbolic bottle of champagne, a band was playing a bravura march, the chief engineer was preparing to receive the congratulations of the Fuhrer. And then suddenly a seven-inch rope broke, and "Scharnhorst" failed on two coastal barges, one of which, together with the crew immediately went to the bottom, and the other was killed almost the entire team gathered on the deck of the battleship and the observed slope.

Hitler believed immensely in all kinds of signs, after this horrific tragedy would immediately give the order to send the ill-fated ship for scrap. However, less superstitious generals dissuaded him from such a hasty, in their opinion, the decisions. And, as it turned out, in vain.

Ghosts of the schooner "Charles Heskell"

"A year ago, in May, 2007, off the coast of Alaska ran aground and was seriously damaged another unlucky cruise ship Empress of the North with 281 passengers on board."

According to U.S. media, Empress of the North today — one of the unlucky ships of this class. In just 3.5 years of its operation is the third time the ship runs aground!

Sailors … — pretty superstitious people. According to them, the ships, like people, have their own character: calm or flighty, constructive or destructive. And these characters are in no way dependent on their "parents" — engineers and builders. Sailors believed that the ships can also "born in a shirt," but from the moment they can bookmark the yard every day to prove that they bear the stamp of bad luck, or even doom.

When in 1869, on the ramp just stepped out of stocks schooner "Charles Heskell" worker slipped and broke his neck vertebrae, many have come to believe that the vessel is a curse. However Captain Curtis took command of the ship and the crew even managed to score.
A year later, "Charles Heskell" led fishing along with other fishermen ships in Grand Banks of Newfoundland, when suddenly bumped severe hurricane. In heavy seas lost control "Charles Heskell" rammed the schooner "Andrew Johnson", destroying it and sinking the whole team, with himself, despite his severe injuries, was able to return to port.

After renovation "Heskell" again headed to the island of Newfoundland. Five days fishermen quietly engaged in catching, and the sixth was just incredible. It was night. Two on watch at midnight witnessed a horrible sight: climbed aboard the schooner exactly 26 ghosts with hollow eyes, the half-rotted clothing and rubber boots. Ghosts net thrown into the sea and twenty minutes later began to pull it back!
Having done this odd job, they silently and not paying attention to the sailors left the ship. Terrified the watch captain immediately reported the incident. He did not believe it at first, but when I saw the deck wet networks, which fluttered a few fishes, came in such terror that gave the order to turn back immediately. But when "Charles Heskell" was approaching the coast, the silent ghost appeared again on the ship, and threw again taken out of the sea network, and then together went through the water to the port of Salem.

This is for the fishermen, Captain Curtis and hosts schooner was enough to "Charles Heskell" never went to sea.

Subsequently, the competent commission found that when used in the construction of parts taken from the schooner "St. Anna", the crew of which was lost in the sea under mysterious circumstances. Perhaps the ghosts visited twice "Charles Heskell", was his "Holy Anna."

Put into scrap metal!

But, unfortunately, the mysterious and invisible curse sometimes hangs not only over the ship, gathered from old parts. For example, the captain of the tanker Navy USA W. Scott, retiring, told the tragic fate of his ship. One day after delivering diesel fuel to Europe, began to come out empty tanker from the English port of the Atlantic. But then he jammed the transmission when maneuvering the diesel engine. Includes only the reverse.

In response to a request to the headquarters of the Navy ordered there was categorical: "Immediately return any way!" We had to sail the ship stern first home across the ocean. For repairs it was placed in the dock at one of the bases in the Caribbean. At the same time decided to freshen up before painting. When cleared the gray-blue and covered the sides pink ground, the order came from headquarters to immediately leave the fuel in Germany. And had the tanker with exotic coloring sail to Bremen, where his offensive dubbed "pink panther Sea" …

After repainting the normal color of the tanker continued miracles and adventures. It was struck by lightning, damaging, however, only the radio room. The ship then embarrass, taking in their tanks crude oil instead of diesel and performing futile way to 5000 miles.
So he finished his life sadly coming to a port near Los Angeles, a tanker truck rammed the ship. Blow smashed the left side, but the refurbishment was possible. However, from the staff at this time, the order came to overtake the unfortunate tanker at scrap yards.

A sad fate for a Liberian ship "Rio Map». Five times he found himself in a variety of emergency situations, until finally, exasperated by the owners do not put it in October 1983, laid up in the Greek port of Piraeus, the whole area which is specifically used as a kind of paid parking for unused ships.

However, here misfortunes have left the ship. Within a month, as it was a fire, which barely managed to pay off. Burned a few cabins. A week later, the ship had an accident again: under the influence of a strong wind, it was drifting at anchor and collided with the Panamanian tanker "Jasmine." Both ships were badly damaged. Five days later, a fire broke out, which could eliminate, but he destroyed a significant part of the superstructure. Not waiting for the next crash, ship owners have decided to sell it for scrap.

Curse of the German battleship

In 1941, the English ship "Trinidad" hunted by German destroyers. Finding one of these, "Trinidad" was released on his torpedo. But the team is completely lost sight of the influence of cold Arctic waters to the control mechanism of the projectile. Sailors, huddled at the side and saw with horror that the trajectory begins to round off a torpedo.

Full circle, she smashed the engine room, "Trinidad" and the end of the war brought the ship down.

Super modern Nazi battleship "Scharnhorst" even less fortunate. Being unfinished just before half, he already mysteriously turned into a dry dock. With more than a hundred workers were crushed to death and another two hundred were seriously injured.
"Scharnhorst" was returned to its original position, put in chains and reinforced beams. Every detail checked a dozen artists, but the next troubles could not be avoided. Frames bent in an incredible way, beams and rigging frustrated and maimed people. The leaders of the shipyard had to increase the fee even shipbuilders so they do not run away, and those who are not enticed by higher wages, forced to continue to work at gunpoint.

On the day of the battleship descent to the water in the harbor came Adolf Hitler himself. In his presence on board the "Scharnhorst" was broken symbolic bottle of champagne, a band was playing a bravura march, the chief engineer was preparing to receive the congratulations of the Fuhrer. And then suddenly a seven-inch rope broke, and "Scharnhorst" failed on two coastal barges, one of which, together with the crew immediately went to the bottom, and the other was killed almost the entire team gathered on the deck of the battleship and the observed slope.

Hitler believed immensely in all kinds of signs, after this horrific tragedy would immediately give the order to send the ill-fated ship for scrap. However, less superstitious generals dissuaded him from such a hasty, in their opinion, the decisions. And, as it turned out, in vain.
First, despite its excellent handling characteristics and supervooruzhenie "Scharnhorst" in all the years of his short life, only two managed to sink a British subsidiary of the ship. Secondly, he is desperately unlucky: misery continued to pursue him literally diabolical persistence.

Thus, during the shelling from the sea of Danzig, in the bow turret battleship is unclear why there was an explosion, killing and injuring twenty. A day later, broke down the air supply system in the second tower of the nose, causing a powder gases suffocated twelve sailors.

A year later, the battleship took part in the bombardment of Oslo, he was attacked and torpedoed. Following the repair, it is in the broad estuary of the Elbe faced with civil transatlantic liner "Bremen", which is due to run aground and was soon shot dead by British bombers.

After months of renovation, nearly "Scharnhorst" began combat duty along the Norwegian coast, it is faulty radar — the eyes of any ship. While it put in order, under cover of darkness surrounded the whole Hitler battleship squadron of British ships, which began shooting "Scharnhorst" literally in the eye.

It is amazing but true that the commander of "Scharnhorst" did not accept the fight and decided to just get away, breaking the circle. But as a result of British torpedo attack lost speed and caught fire. Within a few minutes the fire reached artpogreba, and extreme blast force almost broke "Scharnhorst" in half.

December 26, 1943 one of the most powerful ships of the Nazi fleet disappeared in the waves of the north-east of the North Cape. Two thousandth of the crew were saved only 36 people. However, two of their number killed already ashore in unbelievable circumstances. Deciding to cook your own dinner, they lit the primus of the emergency kit. And then you did something wrong, or the curse hanging over the "Scharnhorst", still in force, but the device exploded, gasoline poured his two men, and they were burned alive …

Flammable "Tirpitz"

A significant part of his biography of the other Nazi battleship — "Tirpitz" — then stood at the quay wall, in the dock. Reason has always been one — the need to address the consequences of the next fire.

First "Tirpitz" caught fire shortly after his birth. July 15, 1941 a fire broke out on the battleship with such force that it put out 10 hours. The official version of what happened: negligence … projectionist. They allegedly incorrectly rewound film and missed the moment when it is lit by friction.

After three months, "Tirpitz" fired up again. At this time the fire had almost made it to the stores with heavy projectiles. Official version: some of the men had been smoking in the wrong place and did not put out his cigarette.

After a few months — once the fire, which was extinguished almost two days. He was saved from complete burnout battleship only that at the time of the fire, he was not at sea, but on the base, and firefighters began their work immediately.

In the future, "Tirpitz" burned three more times. Naturally, for repairs after such disasters takes time, and the vessel, designed to hunt for enemy ships, most of the time in the repair dock and a small — on alert.

During one of the few repairs sailors "Tirpitz" profit in the short-term vacation home and immediately fell to the Gestapo for having told their friends about the mystical "deadly celestial light", all the while damaging their ship.

After the war the battleship fires strangely ceased, but the involvement of multiple failures that led, in the end, all, to the fact that in the early 50's, he was cut to pieces and went to scrap.

Unfortunate name

"Titanic" did not complete a single journey and is one of the most popular and at the same time unlucky ships in maritime history, was the second in a series of White Star superliner ", regular flights between Europe and America. The first was the Olympic ", the third — Britannica". "

"It had to be the most luxurious liners in the world. However, they were very unlucky series of ships. Olympique de Marseille in the first voyage warship collided with and was forced to stand for nearly a year on repairs. After the sinking of the Titanic, he again rose to a one-year renovation — to add bulkheads. "

"In 1935, Marseille came out, in the end, out of action existing vessels. Britannica "placed in service before the First World War, has been turned into a floating military hospital and in 1916 hit a mine in the Mediterranean. Normal mine would not bring him much damage, but the ship ran into her compartment with coal. As a result, coal dust exploded break in the left side of the huge hole in which gushed deadly sea water. "

"Britannic sank quickly. Killed about thirty people — they are in a boat, which delayed the screw banked the ship. "

In the French Navy has long had a tradition called the submarine in honor of one of the heroines of Greek mythology, "Eurydice." In this case, everyone knew that the fate of Eurydice was terrible. She was not able to get out from the dead for my fiance Orpheus and stayed there forever.
Strange but true: all four submarines of the French Navy, who carried the name of the most mysteriously died — the last of them in 1970, near Toulon.

The Italian navy ships harassed misery, wore the name of Admiral Andre Doria — one of the most celebrated naval commanders in Italy. The death toll from the sailing of the Admiral is ten.

During the First World War, died tragically turned over from the explosion-dreadnought battleship "Andre Doria," and in 1956 the whole world was shaken disaster ocean liner with the same name, which was compared even with the "Titanic." During the cruises in the Mediterranean liner collided with the Swedish cargo ship "Stockholm" and sank.

Brigantine "Amazon" was published in his first voyage in 1861. A couple of months later, her captain, Robert Mc Lellan — a real "sea dog" with twenty years of experience — suddenly cold and died. At the next captain having other problems: for a short time, he managed to ram the "Amazon" fishing boat and Brig. After extensive renovation the new captain of the ship landed on the rocks almost opposite the repair dock.

Owner unhappy brigantine bankrupt in repairs and compensation to the victim, rushed to sell the vessel. The new owner, finding that all the troubles associated with the name of the brigantine, renamed it, but it is, unfortunately, nothing has changed in her life. Trouble continued to pursue the ship …

Six Admirals

"Unfortunately names have almost all navies of the world. The Russian Navy is the name — Admiral Nakhimov "."

Russia's national hero Admiral Pavel Stepanovich Nakhimov is also known that during the siege of Sevastopol, the British and French troops, he sank their own ships, and thus blocked the entrance to the enemy on the inner harbor bay.

Perhaps it is at sea standards, sacrilege, though forced, and the impetus for the fact that almost all of the ships, named after the name of the great naval commander, for one reason or another for a long time did not serve his country.

Pavel Nakhimov died in 1855. Shortly after him was renamed the Russian cargo ship company shipping and trade. In 1897, during a violent storm off the coast of Turkey, the first "Nakhimov" was killed along with all hands.

In the 80-ies of the XIX century with shipyards came down and armored cruiser named Nakhimov on board. Since the beginning of the Russian-Japanese war, he was included in the going to the Far East Squadron Vice Admiral Rozhdestvensky.

In May 1905, the cruiser was hit by one of the Japanese ships and, as a result, sank in the Bay of Tsushima.

In October 1913 at the Nikolayev shipyard started to build another cruiser, the keel of which was laid a silver plate with the name of the ship — "Admiral Nakhimov". A year later, the First World War, then the October Revolution, for it — the Civil War.

During the political upheavals were not up to the building, then the cruiser as useless like it to be scrapped, then sell, then changed into a tanker. But, in the end, in 1927, "Nakhimov" yet entered into service. Although with a different name. Now, he was called "Red Ukraine". However, with the keel and remained planted 14 years ago, a plate with the same name!

In autumn 1941, while in the Bay of besieged Sevastopol, where the "Red Ukraine" held back the fire advancing Nazi forces on the city, the cruiser was attacked by German bombers link and receiving several incompatible with the life of the vessel holes, sank.

Once again, this time with rockets, the Black Sea Fleet cruiser "Admiral Nakhimov" was commissioned in 1954. And in 1961, he was shot in 50 km from Sevastopol rocket ship "perspicacious."

Official version: general disarmament in the world and downsizing of military ships. Informal — in December 1960 in the Cape Meganom, in the Crimea, under the bottom "Nakhimov" was detonated bomb. Thus Khrushchev's leadership wanted to check how the underwater nuclear explosion on the surface ships.

Checked. As follows from the stories of old sailors — the cruiser was found extensive damage to the underwater hull as a broken fin and shell deformations underwater.

Over from the radiation-contaminated and sent to the scrap cruiser took the research vessel "Admiral Nakhimov" of the Academy of Sciences. In 1973, the ship was in the Bay Tsemess when suddenly gust hurricane, bringing with him the cold air caused a sharp housing glaciation "Nakhimov". As a result, the ship sank right at the harbor breakwater.

Around the same time, the Northern Fleet has entered another "Admiral Nakhimov". Review it served the crew, the large ASW ship (BOD) with incredible consistency plagued with failures. The largest of these occurred in 1985 in the Barents Sea. During the exercise "Nakhimov" collided with a submarine.

Submarine then had to be sent to the repair dock and BOD, because of the injuries — to scrap. But even to the point of disposal "Nakhimov" he came, sat stranded at Durban.

Passenger liner "Berlin" came to us after partition defeated Germany. Even as a German, he was drowned twice, spending on the sea bottom for years. Received Soviet "citizenship", the liner got a new name — "Admiral Nakhimov". In August 1986, he made a cruise on route "Odessa — Batumi".

On the night of August 31 to September 1, four kilometers from Novorossiysk "Nakhimov" collided with a cargo steamer "Peter Vasev." Hit a passenger liner was struck below the waterline in two compartments: diesel generator and engine room. In the resulting hole is about 90 square meters poured a flood of water, and after 8 minutes the ship sank and became a mass grave for hundreds of people.

Charmed battleship

Fortunately, there are not just unlucky ships, but, on the contrary, and even supervezuchie like a charm from every possible adversity. One of them — the Finnish coast guard battleship "Vyaynemeynen."

As the Russian historians, in 1939, during the Russo-Finnish War, our intelligence to locate the battleship near the naval base of Hanko. The first blow inflicted on it three bombers. But, as reported in the report, "because of the high altitude bombing target was not hit."

After a while the spy planes spotted again armadillo, already at anchor port of Turku. There bombers flew seven and twelve other aircraft. But this time, due to a strong defense to hit the target failed. At the sea surface were flotsam of our two downed aircraft.

Three days later, on "Vyaynemeynenu" stabbed thirty aircraft. Again, experienced pilots, who had a lot of sorties missed.

Finally, the command of the Baltic Fleet Air Force has developed a large-scale operation to the sinking of the ship. For its implementation have been selected the best pilots of the two aviation brigade, which raided the battleship by twenty-eight bombers and fighters nineteen. Surprisingly, out of the fifty-six bombs dropped into the ship has not got none!

During World War II battleship hateful hunt continued. One of annihilation "Vyaynemeynena" flew one hundred thirty-two plane! Before the operation, the Soviet pilots trained in bombing long steel bar on the small rocky island near the bay. Real blow struck suddenly and clearly and, as a result, "unsinkable" ship has finally been destroyed!

Command of the Soviet Baltic Fleet was relieved. But not for long. Soon, aerial reconnaissance discovered again "Vyaynemeynen"! It turned out, our planes sank not it, and the air defense cruiser "Niobe", vaguely reminiscent of a battleship!

For the battleship began again inconclusive hunt, which lasted until the last days of the war. And the end of the story that in 1947, charmed the ship became part of the Soviet Navy …
