Sort of reminds me of Pwr Sq rafts back in the 50's/60's on LI, NY inland bays. But.... number of boats these rafts in your pict are simply over the top!

Just imagine the effects with that many boats before holding tanks became prevalent! OH CRAP!!! Pun intended

BTW Back in 50s/60s straight flush was the rule really bad when I was a kid in the many-boat rafts of South Shore LI, NY enclosed bays!

Open carefully

Our club has one raft-up a year in a small bay that is pretty protected from waves but can experience very strong winds that will back around as the front passes. The "raft master" who is very experienced at this sort of thing, takes charge of determining the deployment of anchors, bow, stern and, this past September, midships from the end boats. The end result is a multi-spoked "wheel" of anchors that hold the raft in position and alignment no matter what the winds and current do. In the time we've been in the club these rafts have varied in size from 10 to almost 30 boats, and they've never budged.
