After a series of typhoon-related storms in the Pacific, a boat drifted ashore on Sunday, October 6 in Tofino. The boat is approximately 20 feet long, and was covered in pelagic gooseneck barnacles- common occurrence on existing tsunami debris that has been floating in the ocean for a long period of time.

This happening is likely to be echoed in coming months, as winter storms pick up and wash heavier objects inshore in the Pacific Northwest. Stay tuned!
