The Canals of France.

This is mostly for me. Here's hoping none silt up too badly in the next few years. Gandalf draws 1.2m in salt water, a little more in fresh.



Port-St-Louis to Lyon - 310 km - 13 locks - 3m deep - 6.3m clearance
Lyon to Saint-Symphorien - 213 km - 5 locks - 1.8m deep - 6m clearance



St-Symphorien to Corre - 159 km - 22 locks - 1.8m deep - 3.5m clearance
Corre to Neuves-Maisons - 122 km - 93 locks - 1.8m deep - 3.5m clearance
Neuves-Maison to Apach - 152km - 15 locks - 2.5m deep - 5.8m clearance

So that's me visiting my friend on the Lux border, now to get to Paris.

Toul to Vitry-le-Francois - 132km - 97 locks - 1.8m deep - 3.5m clearance.



Vitry-le-Francois to Epernay - 66km - 18 locks - 1.8m deep - 3.5m clearance
Epernay to Charenton - 182 km - 18 locks - 1.8m deep - 4.1m clearance
Charenton to Paris Arsenal - ???km - ??? locks - 2.8 deep - 5.5 clearance
Paris Arsenal to Paris to Rouen - 242km - 6 locks - 3m deep - 6m clearance
Rouen to the Atlantic - 105 km - no locks - 4.5m deep - 4.5m clearance

So doable. Very doable. The only downside being that I would not often be able to sail, and would have to putter the whole way under power, except maybe in the wider rivers.

Distances:
Med to Lux = ~ 956km, or 594 miles
Lux to the Atlantic via Paris = ~ 900km, or 560 miles
