I'm not very sure if this counts as a story, But for about 4 or 5 years of my life I lived on a boat in a yacht club. When we didn't live on it my mother would work the top bar, trying to help hire new bartenders. If I looked out to the harbor I would sometimes see people rowing in old-fashion rowboats. And, normally, people drive motorboats for fishing, going to different places along th harbor, ect. I never thought it was strange, mainly because I didn't know back then. I would just wave and they'd wave back, like nothing was wrong at all.
Sometimes I'd look across the harbor at night to see people walking along the beach, or climbing the rocks. I really wished I could do it, but I wasn't aloud.

Actually the promo looks really scary -- a ship full of ghosts, creepy...can't wait.

What is more interesting I believe is the shadow people of Napatree Point. I haven't seen a ghost ship unfortunately but Napatree Point in Watch Hill Road Island is a sand bar that curves like a hook out into the Sound. At the end of that hook is the remains of an old stone structure where lookouts would warn the pirates and smugglers of New London, Stonington, and Groton, CT of British patrols and even merchant ships by lighting signal fires. The less romantic and far more nefarious practice which also took place here was land piracy, where salvagers would lure ships to sandbars with phony signals and then plunder the wreckage and it is believed the shadow entities on Napatree Point are the victims of this, though it could also just be a regular shipwreck caused by incompetence or foul weather.
Regardless, all of the historic coastal towns have shipwreck ghost stories but the sheer numbers involved in these tragedies would be mind-numbing by today's standards. Perhaps air travel doesn't sound so dangerous after all.

This makes a plain glass reflect like a mirror, the person in that reflection is probably standing next to the camera that took this picture,
