Some old boats lie moored in Port Vila Harbour. These boats run regularly between the many many islands of the Republic of Vanuatu and one has to wonder just how seaworth some of them are. Some of these old 'rust buckets' are landing craft which, because of their shallow draft, will run right up on a beach to unload. Others are older copra boats.

if I am not wrong, this one is your 100th presentation here. Congratulations!
This composition has a great graphical wealth and a great sharpness, I like the elements of the old boats, its textures, its colors, and the vitality provided by the men in the boat in foreground.
A good management of the light, in a beautiful work.

I think it is your 100th shot. Congratulations for the first milestone!! These boats look old and I would be afraid that they would sink. Nice colours, some vivid, some rusty. Interesting photo from the far away place, for me just the other end.
