According to PC Navigo, there is no access to the Meuse south of Givet until 28 January.

You really don't need charts for the part of Belgium you'll be travelling. Finding an inexpensive and secure winter mooring in late October is wishful thinking. Look at the Waterways Guide and select winter moorings to show only those places that offer this service. You may find somewhere in Maasbracht or in the many lake marinas around Roermond, but I doubt it will be inexpensive. There are no winter moorings at Namur (in Belgium incidentally!) or the Lower Sambre but maybe the Upper Sambre will have somewhere.

I'm wintered at SNEF near Seneffe on the Charleroi-Brussels canal. They would fit your requirements but are unlikely to have spaces so late. Worth a try though - Arthur and Patrick both speak excellent English. www.snef.be/Port_plaisance.htm

Im two days down from maastricht... Have no maps of Belgium at all but intended arrival in France is Namur. I read a very out of date book that said the Meuse closes after a certain point and date...and that one needs to make ones own arrangements for passage. Is this so still...and what might those arrangements be.?
Any info on stoppages in that area gratefully received.. Im also looking for a winter mooring for two months... Inexpensive and secure.. No one on board.. No facilities required... Pretty much in the northern region. Thanks...
I looked in knowledge base... Still struggling with tiny screen tho.
