There are many possibilities and theories as to how the ships ended up in The Desert, since Hubert never officially explained how he got there, only having mentioned that his ship was swept up by a whirlpool and dumped in The Desert. The ships may have been from BBQ Bay and were cast into The Desert by unknown means. All of the ships that have been spotted are said to look identical to each other. A third ship has said to have been spotted near the Desert Tower. The other ships may belong to other Shiplords and may have been part of a fleet.
