More wonderful than the lore of old men and the lore of books is the secret lore of ocean

An unidentified whaler or ship's lifeboat was found abandoned on Bouvet Island on April 2, 1964.

The boat bore no identifying marks. There were signs that survivors might have made it to shore, but no trace of them has ever been found.

Related: A list of sub-Antarctic islands. Also, a list of fictional islands.

More pertinent: R'lyeh is located at 47°9′S 126°43′W. Skull Island, by contrast, is located at approximately 12°S 78°E.

Neither of which is anyhere near Bouvet Island so nothing to see here, move along.
