Working Men in their prime...
Picturit: with the emphasis on 'prime' smile
Astrid.
My goodness - no kidding!! But they look like they've done this before...
Great capture, Astrid!
Picturit: I was kind of waiting for the moment they became 'a submarine'.... they laughed after I took this shot...

Le monsieur à  l'arrière est trop lourd, ils sont à  la limite de couler.
Picturit: I was kind of waiting for that moment they went 'under'grin...
Astrid.
I'll never ever forget that magical fishing village! But I did NOT see this one. HA! Totally up your alley. smile
Picturit: I just happen to see them between all those wonderful boats. I will post those later... this was too good not to capture.
Thank you MLS.

Je ne serais pas rassuré à  leur place
JP
Picturit: Neither would I.... I rather be safe than sorry smile
Astrid.
...better not Astrid...I bet bet he was rawing very carefully. Great capture!
Picturit: They had a laugh after I captured them... maybe they want to live 'dangerously' grin...

Not the sort of boat for a rough sea. I though at first that was a keg of beer that he hadwink

Thinks of boats with little freeboard, I believe your and Ginnie saw the London Boat Race with the Cambridge ladies boat sometimes under water such were the waves on the river?
Picturit: I was waiting for the boat to sink. Yes indeed we saw the Women Boat Race and it was a miracle that that one boat did not sink. My admiration to that crew that kept going...

OMG - precarious stuff Astrid!
Picturit: I was just waiting for it to sink..... wink
Astrid.
Good grief Astrid, their weight distribution is none too clever. Also, is the face of the rower as dirty as it appears?
Picturit: I might have done too much twiddling.... and it might have been some shadow. They were not clever at all.... one sneeze and it was a submarine smile

A very nice scene - and Malta is full of boats!
Picturit: I love boats... Malta have a lot of those.

He doesn't appear to be at all concerned, Astrid - I bet they do this every day
Picturit: I think so too and maybe they like to live 'dangerously'grin....
Astrid.
Picturit: They almost did, Mary.... that would have been THE shot of the year smile

I think that they plan to fill those boxes at the back and then they will be back on even keel.
Picturit: I don't know what they were doing, I thought it was kind of not that smart to sit like that in that boat...
This was the third day, after a few more days I would say 'this is Maltese behavior'... Like 'time' just give it 30 minutes more or less.... smile
Astrid.
It almost looks as though the boat is being rowed downwards instead of along.
Picturit: I was glad it did not sink... I think they knew what they were doing.....
Astrid.
if he sneezed his pants would get very wet Astrid smile... thanks for the link... i'm sure that the luzzu (eyed fishing boats) have not changed for a few millennium....petersmile
they are cutting the safety margin really thin here, Astrid. i like your processing here, adds a bit more to the gritty, grimy look.

Oh my gosh! A sneeze is right! It would definitely put them under! Great capture!
Picturit: I was kind of waiting for some disaster... wink
