Alleppey/Kottayam State Ferry

Is there outdoor, open deck seating on these ferries or is all seating inside. I've not been able to find any photos of these boats; can anyone direct me to any? If none are available a description would be greatly appreciated - one level or two, seating capacity, age of boats, toilet facilities, type of seating, etc.

hey chaps

From the above conversation I'm guessing that there is a ferry from Alleppey to kottayam. I was just wanting to know where do you get it from in Kottayam if anyone knows would love to take it as I'm in Kottayam and will definitely do that next weekend.
