The Anchises was reputed to have a ghost on board. Apparently a bosun had passed away in his sleep at some stage early in the ship's career, and he could be seen from time to time walking for'ard on the foredeck during the hours of darkness. I never saw the ghost myself, but can testify that some of us did the lookout on the focsle facing aft for much of the time.
