Testimonials for the Linssen 34.9 Aft cabin

J McKay. Canal du Nivernais

4 points about the boat we liked:
The kitchen was well stocked with crockery, cutlery, etc.
There was plenty of storage for suitcases.
The two ensuites made it comfortable for 2 couples although our friends who had the ensuite under the back deck found it uncomfortable having a low ceiling.
The bimmy made it comfortable to dine and to sit in the shade whilst boating.

4 points about the route we liked:
We loved the Nivernais - scenic, calm, green and gold fields.
We enjoyed visiting Cravant and viewing its history.
We loved berthing at the scenic spot at Vincelles and being able to walk to the bakery and the supermarket.
We loved Auxerre - the history and being able to berth with the cathedrals as backdrop.
However, we did not enjoy the Bourgogne Canal around Migennes (sewerage or chemical smell) on our final leg to St Florentin.

5 points about Hotels Afloat:
We appreciated your promptness in replying to our emails.
We appreciated the extra help you gave us with train timetables.
We appreciated being able to contact your technical support when the speedo wasn't working. However, it continued to work erratically and we used rev speed to gauge our speed on the canal.
We appreciated the blue loose leaf folder in the boat which gave additional information which was not to be found in the guide.
We appreciated having the facility to have our groceries delivered from the supermarket at Vermenton to the boat. We could not have done without it!
