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.

Day One

We had a good journey up the M5, clear all the way, arriving at Alvechurch at around 09:30hrs. TQ was available straight away so we got all our gear transferred. Then all we had to do was wait for Mr. Tesco to arrive, which he did at 11:30hrs. So it was transfer that to TQ then we were away. As I'm writing this I have realised there are a few things I've forgotten. Firstly a brass water connector for the water hose used to fill the fresh water tank. The one on TQ is plastic and is buggered, but we'll cope somehow. The next thing is the card reader for the camera, which means I can't upload any photos to this blog. The third thing is the Bluetooth dongle we bought at Christmas is missing, so I can't upload any photos from my phone either. I are a wazock! On Tuesday we should be in Worcester, so I'll see if I can get a card reader there. The fourth thing is a length of co-ax cable to connect our super duper TV aerial to the junction box on TQ. Oh! well, no telly. It gets tougher.

Anyway, had a good but exhausting trip down the Tardebigg flight, and we're moored for the night between Lock 29 and the Queens Head Inn.

I'll try to find a way to post some pictures soon.
