Just a hypothetical ? Could another vessel, possibly untracked, come upon her and boarded her? Were the Engines operational when she was towed out to sea? Possibly re-started? or towed away? Rough seas would make it dangerous, but Possible?

I think it's possible. Not very likely, but possible. But considering there's probably quite a few rats onboard, would anyone want to board her.

But you raise an interesting (at least to me) question: if her engines were operational why tow her in the first place?

Even if her engines were operational, she would need a crew, including officers, deckhands and engine room to operate. A tug has a much smaller crew.
Also the ship had been laid up a long time and was out of class-no certificates, etc., so she would not be allowed to leave port on her own without considerable expense.
She is a large piece of industrial waste, and not worth much to anyone except the scrap dealer. Why risk life to save her?

Interesting question but why would her engines be active after about 2 years+

These vessels under tow (even briefly...) to the scrap yard are not called dead ships for nothing.

she has been boarded by modern pirates. They are currently hiding the ship in their hideout in the Seychelles. After they have equipped her with modern weaponry, they are going to haunt the seven seas, highjacking cruiseships and container vessels. Captain is busy growing a black beard right this minute.

Apparently the "Irish Sea" now extends over the whole North Atlantic.

The Irish Sea is between Ireland and Britain.
