I am very interested in Dutch Barges - not only the 'old' ones from the late 1800s and early 1900s but also those that are built today. I can't think of a nicer start to retirement than cruising continental waterways in a 'proper' Dutch Barge - a 'proper' one because they just have such nice lines and look right.
