Some boats from South China - 2 Ferries
« on: February 22, 2010, 06:30:17 AM »

There are a variety of ferries, from small and fast speed boats carrying 6-8 people, upto monster ferries carrying hundreds of people.

Start with a fast ferry with an almost aircraft shaped fuselage.

I seemed to cover the water quickly, but it rolled a lot in the slow turns in the harbour.

A much faster boat was this one

Thanks for sharing, very exotic for someone living up north where there is -25C, ice and snow everywhere! Some really nice, odd boats there.
All the best!
