Not aware of a president's involvement but an innovative Nantucket merchant did it
in the early 1800's with the whalers. (thinking read it in The Wreck of the whaleship Essex")
....but would guess would have been Washington or Jefferson.
actual name of book "In the Heart of the Sea"

Franklin ?

No idea really but BF always comes across as being so much smarter that other Presidents.

and then of course it dawned on me that BF wasn't ever President was he ?

Of well, at least that proves I didn't Google it.
