OH and don't forget the blue square board with a flashing white light in the centre that tell you to pass Stb to Stb and not port to port!

Yep, blueboarding..
I was finding the signage, lights and shapes very confusing but it's starting to make sense now. But how about the port hand side of the canal or river with its lights, shapes, signage is on your left when going down stream, which puts it at odds with the international system of buoyage which puts the port side on you left when coming from sea - and often the the two systems overlap each other.
Confused?

If you're going to Europe you'll have some great options not widely available here in NZ including an older bullet-proof GRP boat or aluminium with lifting keel (useful in canals) or even aluminium hull with GRP deck and superstructure!

You can judge a person by how much they help someone who can do nothing for them in return.

Thanks for the replies - have to make our minds up as we are flying out pretty soon.
Now back to CEVNI study. It a licence needed to operate a vessel on the waterways. Studying lights at the moment. One yellow light indicates two way traffic - two yellow lights indicate one way traffic. Makes sense to the French, I suppose.

 

A very large tick in the "steel" box, right there

No one is going fast enough to worry about material strength because of bumps in the night.
