Former Russian captain tells story of message in a bottle

Former Russian captain tells story of message in a bottle

Tyler Ivanoff found the handwritten Russian letter early this month while gathering firewood near Shishmaref, about 600 miles northwest of Anchorage (pictured: the bottle, left; Captain Anatoliy Botsanenko, right; his letter, bottom inset; and Mr Ivanoff, top inset). Reporters from the state-owned Russian media network Russia-1 tracked down the original writer, Captain Anatoliy Botsanenko. ‘It looks like my handwriting. For sure! East industry fishing fleet! E-I-F-F!’ Mr Botsanenko said. The message was sent while he was aboard the Sulak, a ship whose construction he oversaw in 1966 and that he sailed on until 1970, Mr Botsanenko said.
