Red face ship queries

Hi Chaps,

Hoping you will be able to identify three vessels which I photographed last year at Terneuzen, Netherlands.The vessels are all working as inland waterway passengers ships and I amlooking for years of build, grts and any former names.The vessels are as follows:

Liberty Ann

Sailing Home-Dutch flag


Konigstein-German flag.

Photos are attached and I look forward to hearing from you.


Jim

Ahoy Jim,
The SAILING HOME was built in 1927,and traded untill 1990 as sand-barge,after refitting she became a so called Bike & Boat tours vessel.

Ahoy David,
No sweat mate,as I'm always willing to help out people with data/piccies and so on,but not always noticed directly the requested threads,as there are so many to read each day,some will unfortunaly helped a few days later if it's in my possesion.
The main thing is,I'm always looking around,even for posts that have been asked a couple of years ago.

Hi Ruud

Many thanks for your continued assistance with Liberty Ann and Konigstein.

While trawling through a site which seemed to have some connection with Konigstein I did notice that they mentioned her year of build as being 1992.

All the best.

JIM
