I'm curious if anyone in the cruising community has heard of floating debris from the tsunami?
"A Russian ship’s crew spotted the debris - which included a 20ft long fishing
boat - last month after passing the Midway Islands."

When I was in Suvarov there was a lot of debris on the beach from Japanese fishing
boats, but I always assumed that they were lost
in the South Pacific
somewhere-- not debris from the North Pacific
that had somehow crossed the equator. But now I wonder-- do floating things tend to cross the equator?
