Hovering object


A solid object like a mast hovers two feet above the water. In his log Chevalier de Ricouart, captain of the frigate La Valeur, noted: "At two in the morning we were making some progress in a southeast direction. We saw something like the mast of a ship pass alongside, standing up about two feet above the water."
