Filipino Fishing



The Banka, a type of Filipino fishing vessel, also known as a pump boat, is seen all over the Philippines. Pump boats are made up of a central hull, like a canoe with outriggers on both sides. I came across this colorful fishing boat while taking a ferry boat from Cebu Island to Bantayan Island. Its cluttered deck and rusted hull speak of a seasoned vessel, experienced and well prepared for yet another long day at sea.
