    May want to enter the Rhine at Rotterdam, unless you want to run the Amsterdam-Rhine canal for a long straight run...... (Rivers and cities are capitalized in European......) ;)

    I know the history of that yacht somewhat. My father in law George Sission founded JW Aluminum, a subsidiary of the Jim Walter Corporation in Tampa Florida. in the late 80's we used to to pass Jim's yacht after fueling and going out in the Gulf to fish from Tampa and he told me that Jim named the yacht TICA meaning This I Cannot Afford.

    I just thought you would like to know this.

    Several years ago around 2003, George had passed and we were in Destin and I saw the TICA docked behind or close to AJ's. I didn't know who owned it then , but it clearly wasn't Jim Walter at that time. We have since moved here and my my wife saw the name in an article and brought it to my attention.

    I hope you have good luck with this yacht and I wish you all the best!
