Titanic without deck chairs

There aren't any bridges over this stretch of the canal, so a few enterprising people operate water taxis. If you look at the upper right-hand corner of this one, you can see its name: Titanic.


The boatman pulls the ferry along on a cable strung over the water. I don't think we were in any danger from ice, but the water was full of garbage -- I suppose a big crapberg could have taken us down.

I guess the cable pulling device kind of prevents one from gaining enough speed to lean off the bow into the wind like that woman in the movie....
