The news has come down from the Guinness Book of World Records that the July 5 pro-Trump flotilla is officially the largest of its kind with 3,000 boats.
The news was touted by Trump scion, Eric Trump, who touted the achievement on his Twitter account.
“Trump Boat Parade Breaks Guinness World Record with Over 3,000 Vessel,” he wrote on July 12.

The boat parade was held in South Carolina over the July 4 holiday weekend.
According to Newsweek:
The “Trump Boat Parade” was held at Lake Murray on Sunday. Organizers originally thought around 1,500 boats would take part in the event, which was a display of support for the president.
More than 2,700 people said they would be attending the event on its Facebook page, with nearly 5,000 more expressing a possible interest.
The organizers of the event had a hint that their boat parade would be a big one.
“Join us and thousands of other proud Americans from 7 states as of now as we show support of Donald Trump and for what he is doing for our great country,” they said ahead of the event.
One of the organizers later reported that they were headed to the record books.
“According to the 3rd party company whose expertise is counting people and things from the air, we had a record shattering 3,417 boats and over 30,000 people participating in the ‘Trumptilla,'” Pressley Stutts wrote on Facebook.
“They used drone footage, aerial photography and GIS analytics to count all of the boats,” he added.
