A US company is hoping to get into the Guinness Book of Records after creating a kayak more than 400ft long.
LL Bean built the impressive 407ft 7ins long vessel - made out of 100 standard kayaks - to celebrate the firm’s centenary. And, after six months of planning, 100 employees took to the kayak for its maiden voyage on a lake in Freeport, Maine. The team managed to paddle away from the jetty and make a successful tour around the stretch of water.
World’s longest kayak picture
The outdoor gear firm have now submitted their notary-certified application to the Guinness World Records for consideration. Company spokesman Scot Balentine said: “It was pretty incredible to look down the boat, you could tell people had a smile on their face. “Then, when we started to paddle, it was amazing to watch the whole thing go. You could tell they really leaned into it as the boat really took off from the dock.”
