Ecology Department spokeswoman Linda Kent said it was covered with barnacles and seaweed. It was taken to a state parks maintenance facility where the marine life is being removed and tested for invasive species.
Kent says it’s obvious the boat was floating a long time, but there’s no indication yet where it came from.
Another boat was found last Wednesday near Long Beach, also covered with marine life. It also was taken to a state parks facility and no sign of its origin was found.
Kent said there has been no confirmed tsunami debris since last year.
