I should explain why the two Lake Victoria Ferries look so different. They had the same stock plan set and are the same beam overall.
They look so different.
First, I had hoped that they would be built in Uganda. That didn’t happen. They were to be sent over in containers. For the second boat, I streamlined the process by lowering the freeboard so that the hulls could fit in the containers without more surgery. Amani needed 7 containers; Bluebird, 4.
Again the beam overall is the same. Amani is open ocean and Lake Victoria is a lake.
