Two of our gondolas were out tonight on a group-cruise.
Eight passengers in two boats.
We call it a "flotilla".
The two gondolas here are motorized vessels - there are only three of these in existence (the third one can be seen in the shadow of the bridge in the background).
These were custom-made in '96 and '97.
Just as we've seen with several other variations on the gondola theme, these vessels are uniquely suited to the waters of Newport.
