very doo-able, once the canal linking the Rhine to the Danube was built it became possible to any yachty with an appropriate vessel to do. Great book by Tristan Jones taking a trimaran up the Rhine and down the Danube, (before the linking canal was finished) when many of the countries bordering on the Danube were still under communist influence. Corinth canal is now pretty expensive to transit, used to be $25.00 in the early 70's.
