Canoe Legend. Over his 41-year canoeing career, he made a name for himself in the sport of canoeing by paddling more than 100,000 miles across two continents and earning 11 Guinness World Records. A retired plumber who began canoeing at a time when most begin planning their retirement, he was inducted into the American Canoe Association Hall of Fame in 1997. He competed in every major canoe race in North America, along the Pacific and Atlantic coastlines. He paddled more miles over more diverse water than any other person in the world and was the first to paddle up the entire Grand Canyon River. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
