We made it to the Seine River and Paris! The boats are getting bigger and the river wider.
After 4 years fitting out the boat with mostly reclaimed material and exploring the London Canals and the Lea it is time to go. The boat is designed for "the worst weather and sea conditions" and Hamish & Ana decide to take it across the sea to France then crossing Europe, 8 km/h, on inland waterways. This is the story of how to do it!
