This could be the latest piece of tsunami debris from Japan.
A family in Punaluu found a 24-foot skiff near their backyard Sunday afternoon.
Rusty Nall, the owner of American Maritime Corporation, a boat salvaging company, says the boat could be worth anywhere from $20,000 to $30,000 once the barnacles are scraped off.
Officials from the Department of Land and Natural Resources say all signs indicate this boat is tsunami debris and are working with the Japan Consulate to identify the owner of the boat.
The family collected some of the mussels on the boat and had a Christmas seafood dinner.
"We ate it boiled it, cooked it, and made a soup. It tasted good. It tasted ono," said Leilehualani Kane.
State workers identified the Japanese green mussels on the boat and consider them invasive species. They'll return on Thursday to search the area where the boat was found to look for any other invasive mussels.
