Lake St. Clair Boaters Cruise Toward World Record

  #

More Than 1,600 Boats Tie Together, According To Organizers

Boaters lined up their vessels in Lake St. Clair this weekend in an effort to set a world record for the most boats rafted together at one time on a fresh water lake.

More than 1,600 boats came together in Muscamoot Bay on Saturday for the second annual Lake St. Clair Raft, event co-organizer Brian Elliott told the Times Herald of Port Huron. The crowd started early with hundreds of boats already gathered before noon at the bay, which is known as a gathering spot for boats every weekend during the summer.

With a makeshift midway between the two rows of boats on a sandbar, the crowd attempted to walk through the 3- to 4-feet-deep water from end to end, a feat some said would have taken hours. read on from WDIV Channel 4...
