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.

A quiet day, non-eventful and normal.

I must say it's good to be back on the canals, you can moor pretty much anywhere and you don't have to plan your stops/moorings and have a contingency plan if plan "A" fails for what ever reason.

We popped into Whilton Chandlery at the bottom of the Buckby Locks and got ourselves a new aerial. They had one at a knock down price, so we had to have it to replace the old one which gave up the ghost and it's now up and working.

Our new aerial, installed and working.
We're back in Braunston again and, as luck would have it, moored outside The Boathouse. There was just enough space to get in. It's quite a nice pub for a chain pub, very clean, not what I'd call a sticky pub, (where the tables are sticky), it has a friendly service and the food is good too. Lin had Hock of Ham and I had Pork Loin served with mashed potato and vegetables, and the sweet was good too, Apple pie and Custard for me and Soft Centre Chocolate Pudding for Lin.

Later, back on TQ, we watched TV. Well, the new aerial had to be tested.
