A Finnish inventor has a bathtub on a raft sailing 56 miles across the open ocean between Helsinki and Tallin.

Janne Kapylehto and two friends made the trip in his self-made raft, in the 1200-liter bathtub filled with water.

The journey lasted almost 11 hours because they were confronted with four meter high waves and 20 miles per hour wind.

To meet the conditions, Kapylehto assembled his ship with two engines and had additional solar panels to power the navigation system.

According to Euronews, he had previously done the trip in 2018 – this time using a sauna on the raft. He said: [The hot tub] wasn't completely [so] full during the crossing, because of course with the waves the water would just go all over the place but, shhh, don't tell anyone, we filled the hot tub again just before landing, so that we would make a stylish arrival with a full, hot hot tub. & # 39;
