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.

Roll on Summer (KLT)

Yes, it's all very pretty and fun for the kids (and some adults), but its been hanging around for long enough and I can't wait for it to thaw. Tranquility is still iced in at Barbridge and there is no sign of a rise in temperature to melt the ice. There is some work to be done on TQ before she embarks on her next journey, a new alternator is required for charging both the starter and bow thruster batteries, and another for charging the domestic pack. Also the Webasto heater requires looking at to prevent it flooding with fuel. Hopefully all this can be sorted once the ice has melted and TQ can be taken to Aqueduct Marina.
I find it a bit ironic that you don't hear much about Global Warming these days, but you hear so much more about Climate Change instead. Is it because the "Authorities" have changed their minds and are now not sure whether it's going to get warmer or colder? I think cleaning up our act and reducing emissions is the right thing to do but it's become a band wagon for certain "Authorities" to jump on and make multi millions out of us.
Lin and I took a stroll down to our local canal today, the Bridgwater and Taunton and although there is some ice it looks navigable. Here's a short video:-
