Don't know. But a lot of stuff is around Hawaii now. Charter fish boat last week said they saw some type of huge piling/telephone pole (with cables wrapped at its base) floating in the ocean 30 miles north of Oahu. This thing was floating vertically about 3 feet above the water and 30 feet below. Very little bouyancy which means it was going up and down in the waves meaning at times the thing was totally submerege, then floating up with incredible momentum. Figuring this thing weighed a couple tons or more it could punch a hole right through a fiberglass hull. There have also been 4 small fishing boats (20-24 feet long) found washed up on the beach- all confirmed from Japan tsunami.
