Fastest Boat Powered By Human Fat. Is It Ecological?


This may be the fastest boat ever built??he Earthrace??nd it?? powered by fat.

Peter Bethune, a New Zealander, will take it out on March 1??sing some of his own fat harvested through liposuction??nd try and break the world?? record for powerboating around the world.

Here are the stats: ??arthrace is a 78 foot alternative fuel powered wave-piercing trimaran, it can carry 3,000 gallons of fuel, and weighs 23 tonnes when fully fueled???/p>

It is also deadly gorgeous, with a Darth Vader kind of aesthetic.

There are times when innovation just leaves you speechless. This is one of them for me.
