Commercial traffic

This ship from Sliedrecht Holland is one of the biggest single we have seen on the rivers at 135 meters overall.

He is loaded with soya and headed for Hungary. 

One problem!!! he is loaded so heavy that his draft is to deep to transit some part of the Danube.

If the water level in the  Danube doesn't rise in the next few days he will have to off load some of his load before he can continue.
There is a good chance that it rose a little last night as a storm came through with lots of rain.

We had a nice chat with the captain and he gave us some "heads up" about the Danube and the various countries we have to transit.
