Here’s our speedboat or “voadeira” in portuguese, the Lucas Huber – named after Ruth’s uncle and founder of Project Amazon. This little boat was our home for 30 hours. No padding on the seats and some very rough sections of water makes for a long ride! The advantage is that you can cover at least 3 times more water than a normal barge or boat. It’s a great way for river workers, pastors and supervisors to get around.
