Strong Man Pulls Cruise Ship

Tuesday, August 24, 1999
John Wooten, a 51-year-old Boston man, who bills himself as the world's strongest man, reportedly moved a 16,000-ton cruise ship by pulling it on a rope from a dock while the ship was in the water. Organizers of the stunt said Wooten pulled on the SeaEscape Cruises Ltd. vessel Island Adventure for about 40 minutes and that he moved it 70 feet. His past feats of strength have included pulling a Boeing 747 jet and a 280-ton train.
