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.

Sunday, 2 October 2011

The heatwave continues and we make up some distance.

An early start and we topped up with water and slipped our moorings at 07:50hrs. Thats early for Lin, half the morning's gone for me.

Early morning mist at Wadenhoe Lock.
The sloes are in the hedge at the lock landing.

We made passage through ten locks today, and there was low water along the stretch between Titchmarsh and Islip Locks, apparently an automatic weir had acted on a malfunction and lowered letting thousands of gallons of water out of the pound overnight. Some boats tied up at moorings had a bit of a list on.

Big locks here.

This is the biggest - Irthlingborough Lock

Our stop for the night comes shortly after this lock.
I tried to get our new satellite system working again today but it seems to be configured for the foreign market as reception from the Astra 2 satellite is not possible. So its back to the old piece of welding rod bent into a circle. It works.

I'm going to watch the rest of the Star Trek film - more tomorrow.
