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.

Lots to do and an early start (KLT)

Well, early for us, so we took on water at the top of Bosley Locks and then made the descent through the locks, all of which were in our favour. Had a stop in Congleton for some shopping (Morrisons is about 15 minutes walk), and then back to TQ for lunch. The rain wasn't as bad as forecast but its been quite cold and breezy, and by the time we moored up the rain had stopped. I took advantage of the weather window and polished the brass, and then I found some matt black paint and touched up some of the scrapes along the gunwale. I just need to do the port side, and it'll be a job well done.
