Ocean Shores, Washington (CNN) - This barnacle-covered boat turned up along Ocean Shores, Washington earlier this week.
And authorities believe it may be from the 2011 Japanese tsunami.
If so, it would have traveled five thousand miles across the Pacific Ocean from Japan.
The boat was turned over to the u-s coast guard and Grays Harbor county authorities.
The state department of ecology was expected to inspect it for invasive species.
And officials were expected to ask the Japanese consulate in Seattle for help in identifying the boat.
