Michigan Boat Parties! This is an aerial photo of The Raft Off

The State of Michigan is one of the best states in the USA for boat parties!

In addition to the Great Lakes, we have over 11,000 inland lakes and we have over 1.5 million boats. Only California has slightly more boat owners than we do.

The Michigan boating community is fun, amazing, supportive and growing bigger and bigger every year.

Michigan Boat Parties!

The largest concentration of boat owners in Michigan is in the city of St. Clair Shores, Michigan.

St. Clair Shores is located on Lake St. Clair, which is America’s busiest freshwater lake.

In honor of Michigan boat parties and loving boat culture in general, the Jobbie Crew has created a Facebook Group dedicated to Michigan Boat Parties!
