Who said we didn't expect it? In fact, we were specifically requested to observe and record any debris that could be identified as coming from the tsunami by University of Hawaii researchers who gave us a computer projection of where they expected it to be.
But perhaps you missed the part where I said:
We saw a disturbing amount of trash in mid Pacific in 1999 when we sailed from Vancouver to Hawaii in the Endeavour Replica, more in 2007 when we took Lealea from Hawaii to Washington.
I never imagined this thread would be in any way controversial,especially among sailors, and yet....
