Long-Tails are a DIY
, semi-Mad Maxian, sort of boat common all across South East Asia. The typical blueprint for a Longtail is a normal canoe with a secondhand automotive engine attached to it. You see them all over Thailand and Myanmar and, if you ever go there, would probably end up paying a couple bucks to someone with a Long Tail at some point just to get where you're going. They're like water taxis.
But they’re also like racehorses. Each Long-Tail is different, the only common thread between them that each one is a fusion of a normal boat with an automotive engine DIY’d onto it.
It’s hard to say who these two actually are beyond the fact that they're clear visionaries in the field of Long-Tail design, attaching a gigantic diesel motor to their boat and going for a test drive. This s**t gives you sweaty palms just looking at it.
