Re: Have you ever hit a shipping container?

I live i Charleston Oregon on my 1973 Morgan O/I 33 and work sometimes as a deck hand on fishing boats. During the halibut fish opener june 27 we were drifting for the night ans saw 2 objects on radar about 1.5 miles away. We looked into the dark and could not see any lights. The next day i recieved a text from my girlfriend saying that 2 large fuel storage tanks from the Japan tsunami had washed up on shore at horse falls beach that morning. Here on the Oregon coast the fishermen are now keeping a close eye out for debris. I have found many balls floating and other debris.
