Haunted Harbor

Posted on April 7, 2009

So this one day me and a couple of friends were looking for ghost sightings on the internet, located near our home town. We found one called Haunted Harbor that dated back to around 1936. The story was about a fisherman who was extremely greedy and headstrong and decided to try and run in all his lobster traps in one night, unfortunately that night there were high North Easters and the waves were pretty high. He was almost back to the harbor and just entering the channel to take him there. His boat started to take on large amounts of water and he began to sink. His crew had time to bail, but he thought he could make it. He made it about halfway through the channel when the boat quit. The boat drifted back through the channel (which is a rare occurrence) and out to sea, the fisherman was never seen again.

So me and my friends decided to take a trip down to the old fish plant located on the wharf that he was headed for. We arrived at around 12:00 midnight, equipped with only a flashlight. We started to look around and didn’t find anything. Then we heard a noise from inside one of the buildings, two of the friends that were there immediately bolted, one of them ran straight to his house, the other halfway across the bridge beside the wharf. We decided to check it out.

We moved slowly to the corner of the building. This building was about 30 meters long and had no side entrances or crevasses to hide in which makes this very freaky. We looked to the far end of the building, and there was no one there. We turned our head to the other side of us and then quickly back and we were staring a large man in the face. To this day we can’t understand how he got there. There was no possible way he could have sneaked up on us from about 30 meters away in under 5 seconds.

True story, 100 % true, you should have been there – scared the crap out of me.
