Have you ever wondered what it'd be like to be lost at sea? Have you ever wondered what you'd do to pass the time if you were? The Hanjin Scarlet crew recently wondered the same thing as they were stranded in the Gulf Islands.

You may get lucky and only stay stranded for a little while; however, if you're like the Hanjin Scarlet crew, you might be looking at months. Here are just a few fun ways that you could pass them time.
