The answer is James Watt.
My (un)favorite quote from him is: (during a trip down the Colorado in
the Grand Canyon)
The first day was spectacular...The second day started to get a little
tedious, but the third day I wanted bigger motors to move that raft out.
There is no way you could get me on an oar-powered raft on that river--
I'll guarantee you that. On the fourth day we were praying for
helicopters, and they came.
