I’ve heard many rumours about fishermen having sighted large objects in the deep blue sea off the coast of North Borneo. These are often told in a hushed tone as if the very mention of this would invoke the wrath of the gods. In fact I know of a person who claimed he personally knew where to actually find one.
But of course, he warns me, it’s going to be dangerous because the sea around that sunken vessel is known to be haunted.
Could it be that the sunken ship is the Dutch submarine, which sank off the coast of North Borneo some 70 years ago? According to this report, a group of divers who were exploring the deep sea north of Borneo found the wreck of a Dutch submarine which sank in the World War II era. The ship has been declared missing for 70 years.
The exact location was not told “to honor the deceased and their families.”
According to the report which quoted the Dutch Defence Ministry in The Hague, the submarine, known as Hr. Ms.. KXV (or K16), which had been missing with 36 crewm embers in 1941, was found by Australian and Singaporean divers.
These divers must have been acting upon tips-off from local fishermen, the same group of fishermen whom I heard the rumours from.
