Some are more "showy" than others. There are passenger vessels, cargo vessels, and work boats of many types. Today we're taking a look at a topo.
William tells me that "this topo was built around 1900 in the Giudecca Canottiere. Previous owner was a Giudecca fisherman that used it for.. fishing! and sold it to a buddy of mine years back. It has all the original oars and forcole from the former owner, I actually completely redid and repaired one of the oars with my buddy Paolo Brandolisio".
The photo above was taken in Venice.
Following are two more shots from somewhere in the Venetian Lagoon.
And while William rows from a precarious position, his wife Elsa reclines while enjoying the views of the lagoon.
