Plastic Bottle Boat

2 03 2010

Every once in a while, someone will embark on a great adventure to proof a point. I would say that this is one of it. 🙂

The Plastiki is a boat made from 12,000 2 liter bottle which have been pressurize using dry ice to make it buoyant enough to carry 4 people. They will be embarking on a cross adventure to cross the pacific ocean, from San Francisco to Sydney.  It is estimated that the journey will take 100 days with electricity generated from solar panels and even through cycling. The journey starts this month, so wish them luck!
