A capsized, 38-foot Japanese fishing boat washed ashore Saturday morning about 8:30 a.m. between Arcadia Beach and Hug Point.

Cannon Beach Fire Chief Matt Benedict said the Coast Guard arrived and insured there were no people in need of help.

Officials from Oregon State Parks and the Coast Guard determined the vessel to be debris from 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami, and inspected it for any leaking fluids or safety hazards, Benedict said.

Benedict said the vessel looks like it has been in the water for quite a while, and it appears there is Japanese lettering on the hull.

“There’s lots of vegetation on the side. It appears it’s been floating upside down for a long time,” Benedict said. “If people go down and look, just be careful.”

Benedict said he was not aware of health hazards, and that Oregon State Parks is working with a salvaging company to remove the vessel from the beach.
