Dry-docking in Toulouse

Every 5 to 10 years, depending on what type of water has been navigated, barges need to come out of the water to have their bottoms cleaned and painted. After thinking about it for the past couple of years, we have decided that 2018 is the year for Kanumbra to undergo the beauty treatment, so we have booked her into the covered dry-dock at Toulouse in late-August, soon after the Fêtes des Plaisanciers is completed in Moissac. It was reassuring to see her name appear on the online booking form for the dry-dock for August 23 - September 3.
