The Rowingest Man in the States

This lovely clip from the Pathe archive (click the image to start) dates from 1964 when lumberjack Tony Calery, otherwise known as 'Seaway Tony', rowed 2,000 miles from Michigan to the World's Fair in New York in 75 days, despite rowing with a cigarette in his mouth. A very nice double ender he had, too.
