Default Euro Boats

Carmen,

Thanks for the pictures of very romantic-looking scenery. That canal barge really picqed my interest. It's just too bad that something like that wouldn't work over here. Do the boatmen still live aboard with their families; or is that all a thing of the past? My brother lived in Brussels, and he fell in love with the canal boats. Thanks for bringing European boating to our attention. There are so many beautiful boats stiil operating "across the pond". What we see here, mostly, are plastic-trailers-on-a-raft sort of thingys. Keep 'em coming.

Attached is my fav steamboat from your side of the world. Note how the boat and the Captain both mave moustaches. Now that's what I call the perfect match between boat and man.

Sam
