The Floatwell was a ship that sank in a horrible space storm, in 3013, in the treacherous gases of the Sargaseous Sea. [7ACV21] Several hundred people died. Bender's stolen shiny metal ass was on board, having boarded at South Street Spaceport, and the crew went to the sunken ship to recover it.

While they were there, Bender spun the ship's wheel as if it were a wheel of fortune, breaking the skeleton of the late captain.

Cargo[edit]

The Floatwell carried many crates, some of which were labelled.
