Context would help....
...but think of a bridge. Now think of one made of boats tied together. It wouldn't sink, but it wouldn't be very stable. It's not what boats were designed to do.
So I would imagine that the author is saying that, whatever he is describing, was floating in a scattered, disorganized manner.

On paul reveres ride he saw that the British were coming by sea. There were so many boats they filled the horizon, looking from a distance like a "bridge of boats." Boats are also higher when the tide is rising, making them easier to see over the horizon.
