Kawela Bay skiff might be from tsunami

By Associated Press


The state Department of Land and Natural Resources says a skiff that floated into Oahu's Kawela Bay may be tsunami debris.

KITV4 reported the 20- to 25-foot skiff discovered Wednesday was covered with barnacles. A state crew found no invasive species but located a vessel identification number and turned it over to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The agency will contact the Japa­nese government to determine whether the owner wants the boat back.

More tsunami debris is expected.

Other discoveries of debris from the 2011 tsunami:

» A fisherman in September found a boat floating at sea.

» A 24-foot boat in December washed up on shore at Puna­luu.

» The Department of Land and Natural Resources in July removed a boat found on Malaekahana Beach.
