Stumper for Mitch: What is the record for anyone surviving on a life raft and when did it happen...

I cannot recall his name but there was Asian man that went 133 days on a raft in WW2 after his ship was bombed; he was a hired food servant.

Congradulations Mitch you were right on the time and amount of days but it was a British sailor and his ship was torpedoed off the coast of England and they found him 133 days later off the coast of Brazil.

Does the Question refer to Americans only or world-wide?

Taking a shotgun approach...Diabetes, Hepatitis C, Parkinsons? Aids?
