Matte Black Batela

photo and video by Nereo Zane
 
There always seems to be something interesting going on
in the shop at the GSVVM rowing club.
Maestro Marcuzzi is a remarkable boatbuilder,
and a true asset to the club.
 
Nereo Zane sent me the above photo with the text:
 
Here is a shot of the new "batea a coa de gambaro"
taken today, almost ready to be launched.
Built by Maestro Luigino Marcuzzi.

Later, Nereo sent me this nice little walk-around of the new boat.

Most of the GSVVM boats are orange with blue trim and/or rails.
Some also have varnished wood in certain places.

But the batelas that Luigino has been building lately have been finished in a very cool matte black.

Next time I'm in the Veneto, I look forward to rowing this beauty.
She should have her official launch soon.
