    I started a thread about this back in June: http://forums.outdoorsdirectory.com/...tsunami+debris. But since then I haven't seen anything more than miscellaneous stuff that could be tsunami debris or not---pieces of closed cell foam, misc. floats with no identifying info on them, etc., etc. But nothing really significant.

    One day last summer I pickd up 1 red plastic gas container, 2 small bouys and one very large black bouy it was black and 4-ft long.
    All items had Japananise names or symbols on them. That day there were several large rafts of kelp.

    July 5 we watched one of the big black floats drift by on the wind off Kodiak, then retrieved it once we pulled anchor. Still sitting in my yard waiting for me to decide what it's good for. In that same period I picked up a couple of gas jugs and some big chunks of styro off local beaches. Nothing new after about the end of July.

    We had 2 of the big black floats washed ashore at our setnet camp on Kodiak.

    We found this out by Montague floating this spring.



    If you Google the model number on it, a Mikasa V5HO, it is a Japanese spec volleyball.

    I agree wholeheartedly. I can't remember if I mentioned this one before, but I found a well worn yellow hardhat floating out near Elizabeth Is. this summer and it actually sent a shiver up my spine when I got close enough to it to figure out what it was. It didn't have any sort of identifying type or writing on it, so I can't be sure it was tsunami debris, but who knows? I know this is kind of morbid, but my first thought when I picked it up was wondering if it WAS tsunami debris if the person that had owned it and was wearing it was one of the thousands of unaccounted deaths in the tsunami. I actually threw it away because it kind of bothered me.

    BTW---I see you're a new member of our forum community. Welcome!! Hope you find it informative.
