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.

Home again.

Well, that's another holiday over, back to work tomorrow. I have to say it's been really good despite the weather butting in and changing our plans for us. And didn't it go quick, three weeks gone in a jiffy.When I look back it was a bit risky knowing TQ had to be back at base by a certain date, but at the time we didn't know we were going to be caught out by the weather. Twenty-six hours of heavy rain made the River Soar rise by at least eighteen inches over night, and at Kegworth Lock it almost went above the red level marker, stopping short by an inch. After four days waiting for the level to drop back into the amber we decided it was too late to go on let alone do the Ashby Canal as well, so we turned back the way we came.
This morning we were up at 05:30hrs. to prepare TQ for the next owners and the syndicat walk-through before the AGM, all of which went very well and now I have a lot of work to do arranging the Winter maintenance programme.
