Rowing in Bangladesh

 Another great post at Duckworks Magazine has a fascinating and beautifully shot film of boats in Bangladesh, taken at the end of the last millennium by cameraman Derek 'Deek' Rose.
There is an enormous variety of rowing styles captured, from forward-facing sculling with crossed blades to monster yulohs, punting and every form of paddling. The sound track is great, too.

I really enjoyed that, thanks! Many boats that are new to me. the images from the scrap yards are incredible as well.
