* The practice of chaining slaves, and cramming them into ships' cargo holds is as old as maritime trade.
* During [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII WWII]], Allied POWs' were crammed into "Hell Ships," to be transported across Japan's new dominions to be held in [[HellHolePrison hellish prison camps,]] or as [[MadeASlave manual labor]]. Being unmarked, Allied naval forces would often attack and sink these "Hell Ships," thinking they were filled with supplies or combat troops.

Added DiffLines:

** These were often older decommissioned ships, kept permanently at anchor and used because of the easily available space, versus having to build a custom prison. This was especially useful during times of war, where they might temporarily have many more prisoners than they would on a long-term basis in peace time.
** Note that decommissioned ships have seen similar use for a variety of other purposes, to include housing for military recruits, defensive outposts, and as museums (often centering on the career of the ship itself, natch).

EvilGenius Jon Sunlight orchestrates a mutiny among the prisoners and they hijack the ship. This does not go so well, as none of the prisoners kmow how to operate a ship and they wind up running aground in the Arctic circle.
