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.

And the maintenance continues.

Today has been better weather wise, but not quite so much work has been done. We've moved to Braunston, taken on water and done a self pump-out. Phew, it's hard work pushing sh!t up hill. Then we had a late lunch in the Boathouse and rather than crash for the afternoon we went for a walk toward the locks. There were some bits we needed for TQ so we went in the chandlers there and picked up some grease for the stern gland and some sealant to stick down the tunnel light which had come adrift - job done.
There's not been many photos so far and I'll edit some of the blogs later and put some in.

Braunston - last lock of the day, and it's only 3pm
 Some considerable time ago, when TQ was blue and red, we met up with someone Lin knows through crafting/Facebook etc., Anne and Dave from NB Kernow. We bumped into them today on the bridge where the above photo was taken. What a coincidence, it was great to see them again and have a natter.
Back in the Boathouse for our evening meal tonight, and as yet, even after extensive discussion, we're undecided where to go tomorrow. Ahh! I love this life!
