However, it was discovered that the ruins actually belong to an unusual boat that was made as a prototype in the 1970s. How it got to be where it is remains a mystery.

To see it for yourself, head to Collins Beach, a popular clothing-optional river beach on Sauvie Island. If you park at the third entrance and take a little walk along the beach, you’ll see it tucked into the trees at the edge of the sand.
