How do you tie two rivers together and get barges, boats and other shipping between them? If you are in Russia, you build a "float on/float off" train.
Check out the web page for a detailed set of pictures, including loading, unloading and movement. This isn’t a small device… it’s holding a full barge in this picture.
The Glass Boat restaurant is an old barge, converted to a high-end restaurant and moored on the river in Bristol, England. Of interest is that they just had the craft drydocked for renovation and blogged the process. Some interesting pictures and information concerning this beautiful old boat.
Berthed in the heart of Bristol’s historic dock the Glass Boat has been at the forefront of quality dining in the region since 1986.
Located over two decks on a lovingly converted barge the Glass Boat is one of the city’s premier venues for dining, business entertaining, partying or simply relaxing.
The Glass Boat is an award-winning restaurant that is a bastion of fresh, imaginative, & creative food & service excellence. The cuisine is modern European with a British accent & the produce is seasonal, & local.
Service is professional without being starchy & the wine list is a collaboration of the best that both the old & new world’s have to offer.
A truly unique dining experience, the Boat is open for weekday breakfast & lunch, & a la carte dinner 6 nights a week. There is also a set price menu available for parties of 10 guests of more.
An outfit in the UK creating a modern interior barge type canal boat… check the interior pictures. Its an apartment for the water, and that’s pretty much how they are marketing it.
Nice looking. I like the "modern" look 🙂
Another cruising log of a new to the boating world couple who went from no boat to a 22m (66′) dutch barge.
This is my style living 🙂
