Coastal and inter-island shipping barges P9025815

P9025815 Barges, coastal shipping

These two barges maneuvering to dock for loading at Takubar beach east of Rabaul demonstrate why vessels of this type are popular with small ship owners despite being pigs in the water. They can put ashore virtually anywhere and can load and unload all kinds of cargo, including passengers (bring your own seasick pills, maximum strength), right off the beach.
