This is a story of a lost ship that encompasses any imagination on what it was to have been carrying as a cargo….
The Arctic Sea has over 6,000 metric tons of timber on board, he said.
“As a result of the investigation, including a search of the vessel and a probe into its documents, it was established that the cargo vessel was carrying pine timber instead of the more valuable mahogany,” the sailor said. (Link)
Now if that is not a real bummer!
It was not even carrying the expensive wood (mahogany), it was carrying cheap wood (pine).
Now that really is a crime….
Windows to Russia!
