Coast Guard officials in Hawaii say fishermen have found a 16-foot Japanese skiff swept out to sea by last year's tsunami and brought it to Honolulu.
The Coast Guard announced Friday the crew of the Tuna longliner Zephyr found the small boat, encrusted with barnacles, but intact and floating about 700 miles northeast of Oahu.
Peter Grillo is the captain of the Zephyr. He says the crew found the boat at around 1 p.m. Sept. 28. He says he scraped off the barnacles and saw that it was a Japanese boat.
