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.

Not quite a total write off.

The weather is what I mean, yes, it has rained nearly all day, but I've managed to get quite a lot done. The first job I did was actually yesterday while we were in the marina. I had to find out why there was no mains shore power and it didn't take long to find a fault. The live connection had become severed in the inlet socket and now I've reconnected it, all is working as it should be.

This is as I found it.
We now have a Carbon Monoxide alarm fitted properly instead of it knocking around in the boat somewhere.
There is some draught excluder fitted to the front doors, though I couldn't find a way of making them easier to close, they appear to be warped a little and the door frame being a very close fit doesn't help.
The bathroom light switch - we have a new one.
Oh! And the all important dog lead ring - fitted.

Here's one I made earlier.
 TQ will be brand new by the end of the week!
