To The Escape Zeppelin!: Hmm. If you started with 100 rats and they had nothing to eat but each other, how long would the last rat last?
dittybopper: Hard thing to find a ship on the ocean that doesn't radiate some sort of a signal or even a heat signature (it will be at ambient temperature most of the time).About the only hope to find it, other than just stumbling upon it it, is a radar search. Enough aircraft to search for it would be expensive, and really the only other option is a radar satellite. Take a look at snap-shots of the North Atlantic in subsequent passes, and subtract out any large ship-like targets that move faster than a couple of knots, and you'll be left with just a few potential candidates which you can then investigate by aircraft or nearby naval assets.
