Fastest Boat Powered By Human Fat. Is It Ecological?

Peter Bethune, a New Zealander, will take it out on March 1—using some of his own fat harvested through liposuction—and try and break the world’s record for powerboating around the world.Here are the stats: “Earthrace 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…”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.
