Earthrace Boat Crosses Globe in 60 days to Break Record

The Earthrace, a 78 ft tri-hull boat powered by 100% bio-fuel, recently completed a carbon-neutral tour of the globe in just 60 days and 23 hours, besting the previous world record by 14 days!

For the first time in a boat, hemp composites were used in the construction, while vegetable and canola oils were used for lubricants and foams for the bedding.

I agree with my brother, it needs at least 1 gun turret. And maybe some missle launchers. The bullets could be biodegradable and the missles could be carbon neutral and run on biofuels also.

whoa. from the front, it looks like a jester's hat.

lol. "hemp composites were used in the construction"

does that mean that it uses an epoxy-permeated hemp weave...
...or that the workmen smoked doobie?
