To answer the questions -
@angloof. Sorry - limited time to explore Dutch waterways this year. Want to get her back over the Channel before the weather
@stark. She has 2 x 110 DAF six cylinder engines. Plodding down rivers and canals at 1,200 revs (6 knots) she should consume around 10 litres (2.5 US gallons) per hour. Push her up to 2,500 revs (10 knots) is would be closer to 30 litres (7.5 US gallons).
@palarran. She carries 600 litres giving us a inland cruise
range of around 600+ miles. But lots of places to refuel if one goes (as we plan) inland waterways. So it is a yes to a Med trip.
One could cross Holland
, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and pop out into the Black Sea - and motor
down to Turkey
- but getting back would be a bit more difficult........
But we certainly want to cruise her inland down through France
to exit into the Med in the next year or so, and explore the Carmargue and French Riviera at a leisurely pace - and then consider a journey back across the Canal
du Midi to the French Atlantic coast and South Brittany a year later.
Again - thanks for the compliments on her.
Now just waiting to go get her and see how she (and we) go on the journey back across the English Channel
