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.

...And in complete contrast...

...Cold, wet and windy, that's what it's been like today, But we knew it was coming, so we waited until the rain stopped, or at least slowed, and we made a run for it. Once we got under way it emptied down and I struggled all the way from Bridge 28 to Bridge 16 in torrential rain. I just had to stop, I was soaked. But when we did stop so did the rain. Then later it drizzled heavily 'til 15:30 when we decided to make another run for it. A bit better this time, we arrived at Bridge 3 by around 17:30 just right for joining the main line tomorrow.
Whilst waiting for the rain to stop I fitted a cover for the control panel. I had to drill and countersink six holes for the attachment screws. No pictures yet, you'll have to wait for the unveiling ceremony, but first I need to buy some M5 x 25mm slotted countersink brass screws and attach it properly.
Sorry, only one picture today, the weather has been far too...

The sun finally shone.
