Plastic Bottle Boat Flotilla

In 2003, Marcus Eriksen sailed down the Mississippi River on a plastic raft called BOTTLE ROCKET. In 2008, he sailed across the Pacific Ocean on a raft made of 15,000 plastic bottles called JUNK.

In 2009, he will sail Lake Erie on a raft made of bottles called The COLA-HOGA!

Build and float YOUR OWN plastic boat in The Great Lake Erie Boat Float! The Boat Float will be held on Saturday, October 3rd at the Lower Edgewater State Park Beach. The boat launch is scheduled for 9 a.m.

Don't want to sail in the lake? Then create your own tabletop boat for the Mini-Boat Float-illa. Registration is also required for the Float-illa.

Registration information can be found at lakeerieboatfloat.org
