Send a Message in a Bottle

COMPLETED BY 30

LISTED 311

Coolest message in a bottle story.

The message in a bottle that was found 97 years later, setting a world record. A message in a bottle that was lost at sea for nearly a century has claimed a new world record, according to Guinness officials. The 97-year-old letter, discovered just off the Shetland isles, claims the title for the longest time a bottle has been adrift at sea. It was discovered by Scottish skipper Andrew Leaper as he hauled in his fishing nets. He compared the astonishing find to "winning the lottery." Coincidentally, the 43-year-old was skippering the same boat which had set the previous record, the Shetland-based vessel Copious. Previous record holder Mark Anderson was also on board when the bottle was found.
