I sterted this to show how ships look like on the rivers, but now I realise that I AD TO THINK IN 3 cATEGORIES.
Dry freigt, Tanker and ships for sand.
Do you think to open new ones or to put other type of ships thru each other?
I think that 'Dutch inland freighters' will happily cover all the types of inland freighters, regardless of what the freight actually is or what type of vessel it is. So long as they travel the Dutch inland waterways i think this thread will cover them well.
That is my opinion, what do others think?
Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.
Yes there are several types of ships, different in length and tonnage and build for specific waterways. P.e. the Spits, a ship of 50 meter and a tonnage of about 600 ton and designed mainly for Southern Netherlands and Belgium waterways. But this years there are ships build with a length of 135 meter and a tonnage of 2000 ton
