Yet another piece of Japanese property has washed ashore here in the Pacific Northwest. This time it’s a twenty foot fishing boat that appeared on the beach at Benson Beach, near Ilwaco, WA Saturday.

It was covered with mussels and other sea life, along with equipment, including life jackets, that had Japanese writing on them. For the rest of the story we turn to the Oregonian. Click here.
