SYD­NEY — A sail­boat con­structed from 12,500 re­cy­cled plas­tic bot­tles has com­pleted a four-month jour­ney across the Pa­cific. The Plastiki and its six crew mem­bers ar­rived in Syd­ney af­ter leav­ing San Fran­cisco on March 20. The crew took salt­wa­ter show­ers and sur­vived on a diet of de­hy­drated and canned food, sup­ple­mented with the oc­ca­sional veg­etable from a small on­board gar­den.
