From The Tusnami?

Written by Steve Leader on April 30, 2014

The regional spokeswoman for the Washington State Department of Ecology says a small boat that washed up at Ocean Shores Monday could be from the Japanese tsunami of 2011.

Linda Kent also says it’s possible we may never know the origin of the sixteen foot boat. Kent says there are no identifying markers.

According to Kent, if Japanese writing is found on the boat the Japanese consulate in Seattle will be notified.  She says the boat is currently at a state maintenance yard undergoing testing.
