Is this your frozen sailboat? If so, some B.C. cops want to talk to you


A photo of a sailboat covered in icicles has been released by police in West Kelowna, B.C., in the hope of finding its owner.

The RCMP say the sailboat was found leaning against a retaining wall on the shore of Okanagan Lake.

The Mounties say in a news release they've been unable to locate any lost or stolen property reports related to the icy white sailboat.

The vessel is coated with a thick layer of ice, with long icicles adorning the bow and a flaring skirt of ice around the bottom.

The boat's sail is down and wrapped in a yellow sail cover for storage.

To claim the vessel, police say the owner will have to provide proof of ownership and information about how the boat landed where it did.
