Default Sailing ship adventures/seeds

Been playing Return of the Obra Dinn (mystery game aboard an EIC tallship in 1807) and it's got me hungry for some maritime adventure. Does anyone know a good source for shipboard adventure ideas?

I'm not sure what sources they are using, but the Olympus RPG Group is running this very thing right now.

I'm running this as more of a systems-based sandbox, not pulling from any existing "adventure" material. I've had difficulty finding any quasi-historical adventure material, only D&D-type stuff.

I've had better luck with "encounters," though, like these: https://www.2minutetabletop.com/island-encounter-list/

One of things in the totally out of print Time Travel Adventures was Titanic! where our heroes much make sure that certain people live...and certain people die.

Titanic: Adventure Out of Time is also a great idea mine.

Thanks. I'm particularly interested in seeing that video when I have a chance to sit and watch it.
