Extract

In 1972 the tanker named Four Lakes [later renamed V.A.Fogg] left Freeport, Texas and magically disappeared, without sending a distress call. Few days later the shipwrecks of a tanker were found near the Bermuda Triangle. V. A. Fogg was subject to the writings of various Bermuda Triangle authors, some contending that no bodies were recovered except that of the captain, who was found sitting in his cabin still holding a coffee cup. Horrifying, isn’t it? But now let’s hear the real story...
The cargo vessel V.A. Fogg, but firstly named the Four Lakes is a chemical carrying vessel for the oil refineries in Texas City. On February 1, 1972, the Fogg sailed from Freeport, Texas, into the Gulf of Mexico. She had recently offloaded a cargo of benzene and was heading to a point 50 miles offshore to clean the tanks. She also carried a load of xylene (flammable chemistry). Some undetermined heat source created a spark that ignited the benzene vapours that were in the ship's holds. Steaming ahead at full speed, the ship sank like a rock. The explosion ripped apart the ship’s hull splitting the vessel in two. All 39 men aboard were killed. There was no time for the ship to send a distress call, and for several days the disappearance of the tanker was a mystery. But the wreck was located soon after, and on February 13 divers positively identified what remained of the vessel. Five bodies, including that of captain were recovered. So all the creepy story about captain holding a coffee cup – is a pure fiction.
