Tsunami Debris -20’ Fishing Vessel washes ashore at Ilwaco- OPB News

Oregon state officials are spending the weekend cleaning and inspecting a 20-foot fishing boat that washed ashore near Ilwaco on Friday.

Curt Hart with Washington’s Department of Ecology says the boat is being treated as tsunami debris, pending a positive ID from the Japanese consulate. He says Fish and Wildlife workers have taken the boat close to the entrance of Cape Disappointment State Park, and have been removing and bagging as many sea animals as they can find.
