VANCOUVER -- After being flushed out to sea by last year’s massive tsunami and earthquake, a Japanese squid-fishing boat has drifted across the Pacific Ocean and is now about 120 nautical miles off British Columbia’s north coast.

The 150-foot ship is drifting right-side-up about 140 nautical miles (260 km) from Cape Saint James on the southern tip of Haida Gwaii, formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands.

“It’s been drifting across the Pacific for a year, so it’s pretty beat up,” said marine search coordinator Jeff Olsson of the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre.

A U.S. Coast Guard cutter unleashed cannon fire on the abandoned 50-metre Ryou-Un Maru and sank it, ending a journey that began when last year's tsunami dislodged it and set it adrift across the Pacific Ocean.
