Nunavut Man Finds Lost Boat, 13 Years Later

Posted: August 26, 2013  |  By: Pete Evans [CBC News]

A man from Igloolik, Nunavut, is all smiles today after the aluminum fishing boat his family lost 13 years ago in a windstorm was found washed ashore on a nearby Arctic island, no worse for wear.

Elijah Evaluarjuk told his amazing story to CBC's Qulliq radio show recently.

More than a decade ago, he explains, his brother and his brother-in-law were hunting caribou at Hall Beach, about 70 kilometres south of Igloolik, when they set up camp and went to sleep for the night. A wind storm swept up overnight with winds in excess of 100 kilometres an hour.

They thought they had anchored the boat well, but Evaluarjuk says the boat was nowhere to be seen the next morning. "It disappeared," he said. "With the wind, it blew away."
