Riggy-back

small outrigger canoe attached to the outrigger of a bigger canoe A tiny outrigger canoe attached to the outrigger of a larger canoe that serves as a ferry between islands. We call all outrigger canoes bangka in Tagalog, whether they're motorized or not, or whether they're big enough to carry 60 passengers or just two.

I really like the blue of the small outrigger and that island on the horizon. This is a beautiful shot.

Just gorgeous. I love the colors and the way the boat is pointed towards the open water.

60 passengers. I wouldn't have imagined such a thing. I guess I've only seen small outriggers. Love the way you composed this.

So sorry to hear of the ferry crash...very sad!

I think is one of the safest kind of boats in the world. Very nice picture, by the way!
