Born in Germany, married to a Dutch, now I live in the South of the Netherlands for more than 35 years beside the river Meuse.
After the River Meuse has visited us twice (in 1993 and 1995) in our house, we bought our first boat.
It was a Boekanier kruiser, 1975, 7,15 m x 2,45 m x 0,80 m, steel with the name 'IJsvogel' .
And then ... also boats grow up ... it became the ALK.
