  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

A Japanese fishing vessel swept away by the March 2011 tsunami has been spotted adrift off the west coast of Canada.

An aircraft patrolling the seas off British Columbia saw the 15m (50ft) vessel floating 275km (170 miles) from the Haida Gwaii islands on Friday.

It is believed to be the first large item from the millions of tonnes of tsunami debris to cross the Pacific.

No-one is believed to be on board the ship, registered in Hokkaido, Japan.

This is the second one.I believe one washed up a couple of months ago,I want to say off Europe somewhere.
I saw this saw one a couple of days ago,and it doesn't surprise me at all.

I'm amazed it didn't sink.  Its a shame that the ocean is going to have all that extra trash floating around in it.

I remember reading about this in the weeks after the tsunami hit.They said it would take a year or so for things to start washing up on the US and Canadian shorelines...seem to remember they mentioned body parts and clothing worn by those swept out would wash up too...would imagine the bodies would be eaten by the sea life though myself....sad to think of actually....:hmm:

Are you saying one ship showed up in Europe??

You do know that is very unlikely to ever happen?

A sport fishing boat that sunk off the east coast of the US a year or so ago showed up in Spain earlier this year.
