A man named Poon Lim holds the record for the longest survival at sea adrift.  Good story for a choppy market and keeping the faith after having fulfillment of hopes postponed.
  
From Wikipedia: "Poon Lim or Lim Poon (March 8, 1918 - January 4, 1991) was a Chinese sailor who survived 133 days alone in the South Atlantic." His raft was rescued by Brazilian fishermen on April 5, 1943.

An account of Lim's story was presented in Sole Survivor by Ruthanne Lum McCunn.
