Joshua Marvit, State of Hawaii Dept. of Health, tests a 16-foot skiff for radiation after the vessel was salvaged by the crew of the F/V Zephyr approximately 800 miles north of Honolulu, Oct. 5, 2012. The skiff was confirmed to have been debris from the 2011 Japan Tsunami by the Japanese Consulate, after they contacted the owners through the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and confirmed that the owner did not seek its return. The Department of Land and Natural Resources and the State of Hawaii Department of Health conducted radiation tests and a search for invasive species as a precautionary measure.

The field test was designed to evaluate the leeway or the effect of wind upon the exposed surface of a boat based on its size, shape and dimensions. During the field test and exercise, two skiffs were used to help track wind, current and the speed to get a general idea of how all these elements affect these small vessels.
