I heard that ''OPRAH'' is sponsoring a significant portion of their trip.

I think they said the lip-fat would power the boat for about 8 miles. Give them credit, that bit of silliness got them on the news.

Hope they have better luck on attempt #2. I checked out the boat when it was here in Jacksonville, and it's really impressive. I have a bunch of pics of the inside. The guys running it are really true boat guys. Just get them into a conversation about carbon fiber props and you'll see..........

This could start a whole new term when referring to fuel effiency.
