Gallery: getting the boat ready

The three boats are tied together for greater stability. The little shelter built over two of them should provide protection from storms.

There are three motors for each of the separate boats. It was this morning that the crew attached two of them to the construction.

The motors are quite heavy and it took a while to get them to the boats.

For the next six days the engines will not be stopping, day or night until we reach our destination.

Once the motors were in place the boat had to be moved to a new location.

We travelled a little bit upstream.

Le Blanc was in charge of all the work with the boat since he is the main boat person ( I still cant find the appropriate term for his job...).
