Propeller Trial Run

Making propellers for fishing boats is one of traditional jobs in areas close to the Ham Luong River in Ben Tre province, Vietnam. This photo shows a man testing a large-size propeller to see whether it operates smoothly and is balanced. This job depends heavily on manual operations, and the testing equipment can be dangerous for mechanics.
