Ghost Ship

The wooden vessel Raketa was one of the many schooners that Finland built during the war years to compensate the Soviet Union for war damage. It sailed in the Estonian State Maritime Administration as a cargo ship. Due to its incompetent handling, it depreciated quickly. In 1957, it was written off and driven to the beach on the eastern shore of Hara Bay under the town of Loksa.
