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.

Off again soon. (KLT)

TQ has been repainted and with a change of colour too. We've decided on Brunswick Green as the main colour and Cream for the panel and roof. There'll be some photos soon as it's our turn on TQ near the end of this month.
As usual the weather has been good for the last fortnight, and I'm sure it'll be good for the coming week, but after that I fear it's going to break down (according to the Countryfile Weather forecast). We decided to take our holiday earlier this year to coincide with the better weather which has preceded our holidays for the last six years, but it looks like it has beaten us again by peaking even earlier. I'll be viewing the latest BBC monthly outlook when it appears tomorrow. It would be nice to have some fine weather for a change, but as long as TQ performs well and the Webasto keeps us warm I don't mind too much.
Not sure where we're taking TQ this time, but it looks possible that we're going oop Naath. However, if the weather forecast looks poor, then we could be heading dan Saaf.

Spring has sprung?

This sailed past my works when I was having a lunch break yesterday. The last time I took a photo of the Bridgwater and Taunton Canal was back when it was frozen over and there was snow on the ground. See the video in the previous log below.
