What is it?


Astorian Bob Bohnke found the strange-looking 6-foot by 6-foot mystery flotsam on the beach Friday, Jan. 29. It’s made of concrete, and has large PVC pipes sticking out of it. A very worn-out rope is attached, but why? Was something attached to it?

“I discovered this strange object while walking with my dog on the Columbia River near the bar,” Bob told the Ear. It was not there two days earlier. “Does anyone out there have any idea what it is?” The Ear bets someone out there does know, and even might have an idea where it might have come from. If you want to hazard a guess, please call the Ear at 503-325-3211, ext. 257, or email ewilson@dailyastorian.com

“Hope this gets solved,” Bob said.
