Meet the Captain

Lancha Colectivo, Captain of a Classic Wooden Passenger Boat in Tigre near Buenos Aires, Argentina
Meet the captain of this motorized lancha colectivo in Tigre near Buenos Aires. These classic wooden passenger boats are a popular ride for tourists and locals alike. The launches run on fixed routes through the canals and creeks of the delta. By boat is the only way to travel the huge Paraná river delta. During the trip you will have all time in the world to watch the pleasant surroundings. I just watched the captain who still seemed to enjoy the ride, even though he had probably made this tour many times before. For sure, this gentleman knows his business.

Wow this is a fancy boat. We call ours lantsa, derived from and almost sounds similar to lancha.

There's too much room here almost looks like a cockpit to me. :D
