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.

The end...

But there'll be a sequel, we're back on TQ again for Christmas next year. In fact we're on again in January and September as well. In the mean time I had to get her over to the quay side for fuel and pump-out. The wind was quite strong from the South-West which meant I had to face the wind whilst reversing back, and to gain some shelter, I had to move over to be close to the hire fleet moored nearby. I took quite a while to get back the fifty meters or so because I couldn't afford to get out of shape with the wind direction. When we got there, there was no one available to service TQ and we had to wait half an hour for a staff member to turn up. Anyhow, once dieseled and pumped, we took TQ back to the pontoon which was easy considering the wind and managed to turn her around to face North-East ready for the next owner.

...And I didn't find the cooley hat.
