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.

Back in the same spot, but where have we been? Read on...

I was caught proping up the bar in the Bottle and Glass

I couldn't blog yesterday as there was not enough signal strength on the 3 dongle thingy. We left Oozells Loop and cruised up th New Main Line and detoured up the Gower Branch through the three Brades Locks where we encountered two minor problems. The first was ice as we approached the first lock but we managed through that OK, the second was the staircase locks were completely empty - both of them. I had to fill the top lock first and then empty it into the next lock and move TQ along one then fill the top lock again and move TQ out. We made it to the Black Country Living Museum and apart from the two museum boats we were the only ones there. We filled with water when we arrived then winded and reversed back to the moorings. Had a look around the museum again today before setting off and heading back to Oozells Loop, via Oldbury and under the M5 Motorway arriving at around 17:00hrs.

I've been discovered, it seems. 88 in the boating sites ratings. Can't be bad.
