DEN HELDER A Dutch entrepreneur and his wife are traveling through the Netherlands and other parts of Western Europe aboard their floating castle, Museum ship Vlotburg. The barge has been outfitted as a medieval castle, complete with a copy of a defense wall with parapets but without cannons or other weapons aboard. Owner Knight Len Vries built the structure himself with the help of a carpenter and has been traveling the waterways with his wife and two horses, welcoming children wherever they go.
