Reality Hacking No. 177, Ghost Ship, Lake Zurich, Switzerland, 18 May 2000

Surprise visit on a waterfront mansion in Erlenbach. The ship received a special green look for this hack and crossed the lake in darkness with all the lights off. On arrival in front of the house, all the lights were turned on at once. The green ship performed 2 narrow circles – a figure eight –, sailed straight towards the house, stopped 20m from the shore, came to a full stop, reversed th e engines, and backed 300m out into the lake. After a short improvisation on the ship’s siren and foghorn, all the lights went off again and the ship disappeared back into the dark night.
