Hello Volker, glad you like it, a coaster is always a nice sight on this river. Unfortunately they can't be seen too often south of the Duisburg area and so this one was are a very welcome addition to the numerous inland vessels here.

Have a nice evening, my friend, and stay healthy.

Cheers, Hans
