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 CAN CONFIRM THERE ARE SHARES CURRENTLY FOR SALE!
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.

It's been a long time...
...Since I last blogged, It's been a long time since we've been on board TQ. We arrived at 13:30 and unloaded all the gear. Phew, there was a lot of stuff, four trolley loads, anyhow we got it all aboard and the first thing I did was to get down and dirty in the engine 'ole. Wigrams kindly supplied me with some oil and loaned a couple of empty containers to put the used oil in and I carried out an engine oil, filter and gearbox oil change. All finished in time for a celebratory home cooked meal of Chicken in BBQ sauce, home grown runner beans and new potatoes, topped off with a glass of some very quaffable Chilean red wine. X-Factor next, Lin loves it, I hate it - too much hype. Staying in the marina tonight, on the move tomorrow heading toward Braunston to meet some friends for lunch.
