OCEAN SHORES, Wash. - A sailboat abandoned off the coast of Oregon has washed up on an Ocean Shores, Washington beach. Last weekend's storm prompted the helicopter evacuation of "The Rock," a 40-foot long sailboat beset by weather more than 14 miles off shore of Tillamook, Oregon on Saturday. That sailboat was discovered Wednesday morning by Ocean Shores police near the Shilo Inn beach approach.
Ocean Shore Officer Shawn Beebe tells us the only thing visible at the time was the ship's mast around noon, police recovered what they could during low tide, including the vessel's dinghy.
The Coast Guard confirms the ship is breaking up in the surf, it's pilot house and gear washing ashore.
The potential pollution is 20 gallons of gas and 10 gallons of diesel. However the owner, an Oak Harbor, Washington resident, had left the engine engaged so it is believed all diesel was consumed. Coast Guard Sector Columbia River's Incident Management Division determined there is no recoverable pollution at this time. The owner and station have been notified, and the owner is en route this morning to see if possible to salvage anything else from the vessel.
