A Bit of a Lean to Port

Here's a nice shot of the gondola we call "Stella", 
with a couple ready for their cruise to begin.

"Guy on the right vs. guy on the left".
Each gondolier has their own preference. 
It depends on how heavy the gondolier is,
and how much of a weight difference there is 
between the two passengers. 

In this case the gondolier chose to seat the gentleman 
on the right/starboard side.
Because the gondola is built asymmetric, this gives the boat a bit of a lean.

Like all gondolas, Stella has quite a history.
To learn more about her, and those interesting stickers,
