Further upriver we find this free mooring near the lock at Hastiere. It's provided with free electricity too and is used mainly by commercials, this one (white and blue, all one boat) enjoying a short holiday. All the family liveaboard and this boat had two cars,quadbike and small speedboat on the deck as well as a fenced in children's play area.
We are in between it and a Belgium 'spitz' behind us. The spitz are now, at 350 tons, the babies of the commercial world here. They continue to have work as they can go everywhere in France, an option not open to larger boats.
