This Fisherman Uses Coke And Pepsi Bottles As A Boat

With dwindling catch close to the shore, fisherman Roy Thomas can't afford a boat of his own. A simple boat will cost him Rs. 25,000, a sum of money he doesn't have. To earn his livelihood, Roy has strung together a few plastic bottles and a pipe, and rides this contraption out to sea to try and earn a living.

All Roy wants is to be able to afford to buy his own boat, so he can make a steady income. In the meantime, he's working on building a boat made out of a plastic drum, so he can be safer, and catch more fish when he's out at sea.
