Maneuvering a Boat near Tigre

Man Maneuvering his Motor Boat in the Paraná Delta in Tigre near Buenos Aires, Argentina
The first thing you learn on a boat is boats don't have brakes and you better have an opposite force to stop. Don't let that scare you off. Driving a boat is fun especially in the wide Paraná delta near Buenos Aires. The people of the river swing through the water like they had never done anything else in their lives. Watching them was really enjoyable.
Have you ever driven a boat?

Your boat picture is very nice to see. I guess the blue tarp is like a place to sleep or get out of the rain under. Nice shot.

It sounds like you are a boat driver...It is fun. But takes a certain amount of training and practice to become proficient at it.

I like this photo a great deal...it's got color and motion and interest, is sharp and the exposure is right on!

Have a great weekend!

As it happens we went sailing with the kids 2 days ago. Thanks for stopping by Rotterdam DP!

I remember well our ride on that river
and our boat was a beautiful wooden one!

Great photo. I wish I had been there with you watching. I love people watching -- and watching on a river is probably twice as fun!
