  1. In 2-quart saucepan, stir condensed milk, lime juice and egg yolks with whisk. Cook over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes, beating constantly with whisk, until mixture boils. Boil and continue to beat constantly 1 minute longer. Pour into shallow dish; cool 10 minutes. Press plastic wrap on filling to prevent tough layer from forming on top. Refrigerate about 1 1/2 hours or until completely cool.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheet with foil. Lightly brush melted butter on all sides of each boat. Sprinkle raw sugar to cover entire boat. Place boats on cookie sheet. Bake 5 to 8 minutes or until browned on edges and firm to the touch. Boats will crisp as cooled. Remove to cooling rack to cool.
  3. Fill each cooled boat with generous 2 tablespoons filling; top with whipped topping, and garnish with graham cracker crumbs and grated lime peel. Serve immediately. Store any remaining boats in refrigerator.
