(User Submitted) – A rogue wave caused the 26-foot Queen Bee to dump its two-person crew into the ocean off the shore of Nantucket in August of 2008. The two boaters, 58 and 68 years old, somehow survived the swim to shore despite choppy waters. Three years later, their boat has washed ashore on the coast of Spain—intact. The Coast Guard believes it's quite possible the vessel headed north to Canada before making the transoceanic drift across the Atlantic to Europe, reports MSNBC.
