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 CAN CONFIRM THERE ARE SHARES CURRENTLY FOR SALE!
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.

A busy day with just one lock (KLT)
First thing was to fill up with diesel and have a pump-out as we're going to Stoke on Trent to the China Garden for an evening meal. So through Hall Green Lock, all twelve inches in depth, over Red Bull and Poole Aqueducts, at Hardings Wood Junction turn right and head for the Harecastle Tunnel. We had to wait three quarters of an hour for a boat to come through, and then it was our turn. Once through the Tunnel (35 mins.) we headed on down through Longport, Middleport, and then to Festival Park where there were loads of moorings all taken up so we asked if we could stay the night in the marina. No problem, they said and at £6 a night for 58ft, a bargain. I bet a Premier Inn would be a bit more expensive.
