The new look on the river is aluminum boats, I own one similar to this one. It is like a new fashion statement on the river. These little 24 ft aluminum boat are popping up all over the river. Many have a 20hp Yamaha outboard motor or a Habeta as seen in this photo. It is a small lawnmower engine with a prop attached at the end. These are quite dangerous but common in our area. The next question is how many people would you put in this boat? I have seen these boat packed with ten people with gear. Life on the river is very different from the city. Pray for us as we try and reach these river people with the God News.
