At 58 feet length, TQ (as we call her) is a steel hull narrow boat built by Colecraft and fitted out by Elton Moss Boatbuilders. Currently based at Aqueduct Marina in Cheshire we're able to cruise some of the most popular waterways in Britain. The Shropshire Union, The Trent and Mersey, The Llangollen Canal, The Four Counties Ring and Cheshire Ring and more.

Our friendly Syndicate decided to go down the Self Management route on 1st March 2012 and so far it has been very successful. Please visit the other pages in this blog to see the new Web Site and if shares are available for sale. (There'll not be many).

I am having to place a watermark on the blog content as someone on Facebook is stealing photos and claiming them as their own. I wouldn't mind if they asked first and attributed it to my blog. If it continues I will name and shame them. I hope it doesn't spoil your enjoyment.

About us

We are Kevin and Linda Trott from Somerset, and yes, you've guessed already, we're wurzels, swede bashers, turnip cutters etc., and we even have the proper accent.

I work shifts in a local factory doing maintenance and breakdowns, and occasionally some design and development work which is far more interesting. I have a machine shop at home where I can pursue a facet to my other interest, radio controlled model aircraft, where I make my own engines.

Linda is retired and she makes sample greetings cards for a TV channel and cards for sale in a local market and at car boot sales. Those that don't sell go to charity. She also looks after me, feeds me, washes my clothes, cleans our house, tends the garden etc., she tells me the list is endless.

We became involved in narrowboats way back in 1979 when we hired a six berth boat on the River Wey for our Honeymoon. It was brilliant, and we've been narrowboating most years since.
