Now there's a tight fit!! I like the look of the water being churned up!
Richard Standley: In France the barges are huge Elizabeth!
They certainly must have measured that boat to make sure it fit. Very cool shot.
Richard Standley: They are built to fit the locks Michael. Thank you

C'est tellement étroit que j'ai toujours l'impression que le bateau va rester coincé.
Richard Standley: Il faut dire que les péniches sont construites sur mesure pour traverser les écluses Martine!
Bonne soirée

Moving on through...good thing there is no bend in the canal...
Richard Standley: In France the barges are built to fit the locks Ray.
This reminds me of our Viking River Cruise through the myriad locks in Germany, Richard. We could actually reach out and touch the walls on either side as we went through. We found out later that the boats are precisely measured/built for the locks.
Richard Standley: They are indeed Ginnie!

Yes, really made to fit - I recall many a situation in the locks. Is EBENE a ship's name?
Richard Standley: C'est le nom de la péniche Philine.
Bonne soirée

Jolie prise. J'ai passé un WE sur une péniche et c'était très agréable

Richard Standley: Merci JP.
Bonne soirée
On se demande toujours comment ça va passer et si ces péniches ne vont pas accrocher le quai. Belle lumière
Ça passe tout juste, faut bien manœuvrer ! La balade doit être sympa.
Bises, bonne fin de semaine.
Richard Standley: Les péniches sont construites sur mesure pour franchir les écluses Evelyne.

I agree with Michael. A good thing that locks don't come with bends smile

Ooh that's a tight squeeze Richard.
Richard Standley: The barges are measured and built to fit the locks Chad!
Woo - that's a big barge!
Richard Standley: It is indeed Tom. In France the barges are measured and built to fit the locks.
