Lake St Clair is known as a boating hotspot where boaters from all over form rows by tying up to each other and mingle with other boaters for good fun in the sun. Every year thousands boaters gather near Harsens Island, Michigan for a full days festivities to gather their boats (2000+) and let loose. Raft Off typically occurs at Little Muscamoot Bay (map) while the Jobbie Nooner's (the other big annual Boat Party) are located around Gull Island. Raft Off is sometimes known elsewhere as a Tie Up but, to us, it'll always be "Raft Off" and is a public, community affair. Raft Off takes place on the 2nd Saturday in August, Jobbie Nooner is on the last Friday in June and Jobbie Nooner 2 is on the first Saturday after Labor Day. FYI: For the people who don't understand how a webpage works: Click the link in the text description to view the full album on Facebook. You don't have to have an account but it helps view the photos easier.

Facebook has changed it's Pages format and the new format is broken. Uploading photos into albums is completely riddled with errors and unreliable. It can take 2-20 attempts to upload an album. There is no way to notify FB of the errors. This is forcing me to look for a new platform where to host these photos. I will update when I've found a suitable one. This will also get us away from the often inaccurate "Community Standards" bots that incorrectly flag material and can suspend or delete accounts. FB was an OK platform at first but it is now the worse photo platform I've ever encountered. Sorry for delays getting photos posted. This page will always be where you can find my photography out on the water. I hope you'll stick with me!

Jobbie Nooner 2020 Photos are here! Sorry for the delay but FB decided to issue a 3 day ban on my account (FB Jail) because of a photo that was part of the album. They claim it contains "Nudity or Sexual Activity" - Here is the photo, as it was originally posted to FB, which triggered the ban.

Jobbie Nooner 2019 Photos are here. It was hot outside but the water was cold (and levels were high) so not as much action in the water or between boats - fewer than normal photos - but good times were to be had!

Raft Off 2018 was a mixed success - we didn't achieve the world record due to a technicality (there was a single boat gap in the line, but we had over 2000 registrations at that time. Yes, that close!), however, Everyone had a great time with perfect weather and an awesome community party. Photos are available via this FB Album.
