Hello to all you real mariners from a softie on the canal
du midi here in the south of france
I have been poaching lots of your ideas & advice
for quite some time and I am not one bit ashamed... keep em comin'....visiting CF every day is like being able to walk into the local marine

on the inland waterways of france
and as I have been blundering about here for several years I am happy to share most of what I know about this wonderful place..rules & regs, absolutely nothing enginy, and then I thought that a simple post ( this is me doing simple, get over it) on Cruiser forum might allow me some payback to you guys.....to be continu.....
