River Rhine can be pretty fast before you come to Mainz...
...do you expect anything on the reverse trail ?

power do you have in your Catalac
- What did you do with your mast ? (and where?)
We had 2 three cylinder Yanmar
diesels for our trip with 37 hp in each. It was barely enough in our opinion and we had to hug the turbulent waters next to wing dams going up the Rhine. After Bingham, Germany
it gets easier going upstream to Mainz, as current
speed drops off.
I would not like going opposite direction...up Danube as it seems way too long upstream to us and would likely have fuel
We stowed mast in specially built cradle
. Put on deck
and removed in Port Tomas, Romania and used mobile crane.
