A fisherman from Lianjiang county in Fuzhou found and brought home an abandoned vessel in
the Taiwan Strait, the Fujian-based Strait News reported.
According to a local fisherman nicknamed Aodi, who towed the barge-like ship to port, he noticed the vessel on his way back from a crab catching trip in the Taiwan Strait last week.
The vessel, which has “AMITAMA 6” painted on the side, was empty with no cargo, said Aodi.
It took three fishing boats and around five days to tow the vessel, which is over 90 meters in length and 25 meters in width, back to the fishing village of Chiwo in Lianjiang, Aodi said. [FULL STORY]
