Long Hulls

Another shot of the extra-long motorized dugouts of the Fly River.  These types usually serve as the public transport between riverside villages and Kiunga, the commercial center of the Western Province.  There are no seats so passengers have to squat or kneel in a single row on the hull’s floor which is probably wet.  Notice the patches that cover the holes on the first one.
