Plastiki - 10,000 mile sail across the Pacific Ocean

So I just found this great book -

Plastiki Across the Pacific on Plastic: An Adventure to Save Our Oceans: David de Rothschild, Achim Steiner: 9781452100029: Amazon.com: Books

about a crew of 5 who set sail on a custom made 60 foot catamaran from California to Australia. It happened in 2010 and was a 4 month voyage.

Here's video of it -

Saw it sitting in a tired marina off highway 37 east of 101 between Black Point and Lakeville Rd (North of San Francisco) earlier this year. I'll try to find the pics I took...
