Decize has a large modern port. It is very nice as long as your boat fits on the short finger pontoons. We have encountered this problem–a port set up only for cruisers and hire boats–a little too frequently. Fortunately in Decize we were able to improvise. With the port less than 30% occupied, the capitaine didn’t object to Wanderlust creative mooring blocking a few unused mooring places.
(Five locks and 23 kilometers after leaving Nevers Wanderlust stopped at the halte nautique in Fleury-sur-Loire. The next day she traveled 12 kilometers with 3 locks to reach Decize on the 23rd of May 2015.)
