I've just uploaded 3 of the helmet camera videos I took of bamboo boats during my Vietnamese trip last year. Don't expect high production values :D but they do give a good idea of how they are fitted out.

One of them shows a boat with a guy working on its engine. The last video is a bit longer... but bear with it until I get off the bike and have a look at some work being done... it shows a couple of the locals sealing a stripped out boat with some foul smelling concoction. Rick (RFNK) has mentioned before there's a few different variations on this. These boats are all at Da Nang.

I hired Hien of Da Nang Easy Riders to take me from Hoi An to Da Nang and show me around a bit, as my bike was on a train from Nha Trang to Hanoi at this stage.
