The Green Cruiser

A New Zealand skipper, Pete Bethune, is planning to circumnavigate the globe in 75 days using a boat. The boat that he will use to do this is not just a boat, it is an eco-friendly powerboat that runs on biodiesel fuel made from renewable sources like soybeans and some secret ingredients like human body fat. Yes, human body fat. Bethune and two of the crew members, through liposuction procedure, made the very personal donation of about 10 liters of their own fat. The fat they donated is enough to propel the boat for about 15 kilometers.
