The small fishing boats seem like they would be fun to cruse around in. It's difficult to see but there is a small prop out the back end of the boat. At first I thought they were 'paddle' style boats.
I guess I should also note that most people consider fish from the Brindisi side of the boot to be more safe to eat than fish from the Taranto side. Taranto is known as a steel mill town and many of the chemicals have washed (or been pumped) into the sea. Many people have concerns about mercury and other toxins being present in the fish from that side. After learning this I kind of avoided fish from Taranto. But I look forward to fish from this side, because I'm sure toxins, water and fish can't flow or swim around the heel over to here!
