Implied textFlying Dutchman A spectral ship, seen in stormy weather off the Cape of
Good Hope, and considered ominous of ill-luck. Sir Walter Scott says she
was originally a vessel laden with precious metal, but a horrible murder
having been committed on board, the plague broke out among the crew, and
no port would allow the vessel to enter. The ill-fated ship still wanders
about like a ghost, doomed to be sea-tossed, but never more to enjoy
rest. The Dictionary of Phrase and Fable by E. Cobham Brewer
