Supporters of President Donald Trump believe they shattered the world record for the largest boat parade when a group set sail Saturday morning from Clearwater Beach to Madeira Beach in August.

There were enough registrations to make the event the largest of its kind. And, it was three hours between the first vessel crossing the finish line and the last one doing so. 

An organizer of a Trump boat rally in South Carolina says over 3,400 boats participated in a parade in July.
