British adventurer Anthony Smith, 85, and another senior citizen crew have sailed their miniature raft that was made out of pipes that were tied together and named the An-Tiki, some 3,000 miles across the Atlantic from the Canary Islands in Portugal to St. Martin in the Caribbean. This adventure took the men three years.
