A houseboat apparently built by a Canadian environmentalist — whose solar-powered bike brought him to Newfoundland last year — has washed up in Ireland.
The BBC reported Monday that the Irish Coast Guard was alerted to the boat drifting off the coast of County Mayo, on Ireland’s west coast.
When it was brought ashore, the boat — about the size of a trailer, with solar panels on the roof — had no one aboard, but a note left behind indicated it was abandoned.
There are reports the boat could have been docked in Portugal Cove-St Philip’s in Newfoundland as late as September.
