Default Cleveland, OH to Key West, FLA in a Row Boat

Check this out

http://www.habitatcrew.com/Habitat-Crew-Home.php

I went to College with the one guy, Tom, who is trying to complete this feet. I couldnt beleive it when I read it. I remember when I was back in school, he was really into rowing. So far they are on the Erie Canal. They plan on coming down the hudson into NYC and then down the coast line/inner coastal. On there site, they are looking for places to dock at while they volunteer for Habitat for Humanity. If any of you could hook these guys up with dockage as they make they way south, it would be greatly apreciated!!! They do have a blog page also that I found pretty interesting. I wish them the best of luck!!
Thanks,
Jr.

Impressive!

Reminds me of a friend who raced a canoe with a partner from Wichita, KS to New Orleans when he was about 19. Nuts.
