L.L. Bean and Point 65 build longest kayak ever
Think it's hard paddling a tandem kayak in sync? Try paddling one with 99 other paddlers, from champion whitewater paddlers to first timers.
In June, 100 L.L. Bean employees did that, paddling a 407-foot 7-inch long kayak, as part of the company's ongoing 100th anniversary celebration.
The world record attempt was made Saturday, June 2, at the L.L. Bean Paddling Center in Freeport, Maine. L.L. Bean is now submitting an application to the Guinness World Records for consideration as world-record for the longest modular kayak ever.
