Photographer's Note

The long-tail boat is a type of watercraft native to Southeast Asia, which uses a common automotive engine as a readily available and maintainable powerplant.

A craft designed to carry passengers on a river may include a lightweight long canoe hull, up to 30 meters, and a canopy.

There is much variation among these boats, and in rural areas they may be improvised from bamboo and traditional materials—the sole defining characteristic is a secondhand car or truck engine.
