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.

At Last...

...We've waited six months for this, and such a lot has happened in that time. We (our Syndicate) has decided to go down the self managed route, and it's proving to be pretty good so far. TQ has had a new paint job and is looking sparkling. As always there is work to be done and I, as maintenance manager, have decided that this week will be dedicated mainly to maintenance. So we're not going far, and sticking to the pound between Braunston, Hillmorton and Napton. We'll not be going through any locks, saving water for the Summer, as we're heading into the wettest drought on record. (Just a thought, I wonder what would happen if (as we do) everyone paid £x for their car tax only to find we can only navigate through traffic lights from 10:00 to 16:00). Ouch!
We're moored in a quiet country spot, somewhere between bridges 111 and 112, but there's quite a lot of canal traffic about. Tomorrow looks like a write off weather wise, heavy rain and gales and I think we're going to hole up for the day.
