SKYWATCH--the looooong blue boat, and the sky, too

Can you believe how long this boat is? I was stunned at its length. It's a tourist boat, and I think it's the one that is described here. On that site they say it's 180 meters long and this one must be at least that.

See other skies and maybe more boats at SKYWATCH.

Very dramatic! I'll bet that long boat has trouble turning around on the river.

Oh wow I thought it's a wharf, that's way too long a boat. I bet it's very enjoyable to ride in that boat. Happy SWF!

The boat is pretty impressive, but the sky is just amazing! Great Skywatch shot.

Tash said...

Skywatch doesn't get much better than this! And a loooooooooong boat to boot. You are right about it being so impressive.

Jacob said...

You could lose a lot of tourists in one fell swoop on that boat! If you brought kids, you'd need to hang a bell around their neck so you could find them.

Another dramatic photo!

Great photograph...my guess is since that boat is so long, it would be nearly impossible to turn it around in the river and would be capable of being steared from eithr end ( pilot house at either end )making it possible to navagate in either direction.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful photo.

Joni James said...

Bibi,
This is a great photograph! Almost looks like something out of a vintage book or travel poster.

Rebecca said...

I guess 'wow' is an understatement on this one! It looks like a boat 'stretch limo' I can't imagine being the captain.

Before the boat, I looked at the sky...
For the boat, it's incredible. It could be nice to play hide and seek aboard!
