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.

Heading back to base

Had a lazy morning just doing some odds and ends. It was frosty and foggy so going anywhere early would have been a little less enjoyable, but we're in no hurry, so waiting 'till after lunch was the decision. N B Serendipity moved off before 08:00hrs to our surprise so no gossip - shame. I finished off the draught excluding and touched up some paint which peeled off when I glued the tunnel light in place.

Early morning fog
Approaching Braunston
 We took on water just before Braunston Junction and I spotted Halfie on N B Shadow going back to Wigrams Marina.

Spotted just outside Braunston, from my home town. What's it doing here?
 At first we thought we'd go into Braunston and find a mooring, but after the number of boats heading this way decided against it and headed out toward Napton Junction. Now moored about two miles out in quiet countryside, but it's been very busy along here, with many hire boats heading back to their bases after the Easter break.
