Junk Raft Cruises from Long Beach to Honolulu

Junkraftthelog TheLog.com  09.04.08

Three months after a raft built of marine refuse, named Junk, left the docks at Long Beach’s Aquarium of the Pacific, the crew waved hello to a crowd gathered at Ala Wai Harbor, where the boat was welcomed at the end of its “consciousness-raising” voyage on Aug. 27. Pulling into the docks, the sailors may have appeared a little worn-out from the three-month trip, but the plastic bottles that formed the boat’s hull did not display any sign of wear or tear. That fact demonstrated exactly how durable plastic items are as waterborne debris at sea, a point the crew hopes to get across to others.
