VLADIVOSTOK, February 24. /ITAR-TASS/. World-famous Russian traveler Fyodor Konyukhov, who continues his solo voyage across the Pacific, had undertaken a risky operation to clean his rowboat’s hull from algae.

He dived into the ocean and cut “green beard” from his Turgoyak with brushes and scrapers.

During his last communication session Konyukhov said he worked overboard in a life jacket and safety harness. After he had completed the cleaning operation, the traveler rolled out a safety rope to five meters and swam away from his Turgoyak to take a photo of the rowboat.

“It is an unusual scene, a boat without a rower and I as a cosmonaut am drifting five meters away from it,” Fyodor said.

On December 22, 2013 Konyukhov sailed off in Chile’s Concon in hope to cross the Pacific in 200 days from Latin America to Australia. His Turgoyak has already covered 3,958 miles (7,420 kilometers) and needs to overcome another 4,178 miles (7,420 kilometers) to reach the final destination, Australia’s Brisbane.
