Budget Travel? Coast Guard Arrest Man Sailing on Raft Made of Plastic Bottles


Border guards patrolling the Kerch Strait picked up a man sailing a hand-made raft of plastic bottles on Wednesday and brought him into custody. Authorities noticed the man's ludicrous floating device while patrolling the water around a mile from the coastline. It turned out that the man, a 53-year-old native of Tashkent, was attempted to make the crossing from the Russian mainland to the Crimean peninsula via his rickety, hand-made contraption. Police gave the traveller a warning for violating the marine travel laws and sent him on his way.

The solar-powered vehicle can cover a distance of over 120 miles with good sunlight and reach a speed of around 30 miles per hour, but the two-seater can also use gas as a backup when the weather is bad.
