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.

A Beautiful Day.

Steamy Windows.

Every morning the windows are thick with condensation and a quick flip round with the Karcher pressure washer Window Vac cleans it all up. The problem is the frames get laden and they drip onto the wooden surround and then onto the floor or bed, so it's essential to clean it up every day. Today is not too bad as the Suns heat has helped to keep the condensation at bay.

Back to Base

We're back in the marina now, as the weather forecast for tonight and tomorrow is heavy rain and high winds - more of the same, then. At least here we can hook up to the mains electricity and there's water very close by.

Battery trouble

Checking the domestic pack on the control panel volt meter prior to switching on the Webasto showed a reading of less than 11 volts. The engine was switched off after 20:30 hrs last night and the TV only had an hour and a half after that. The fridge ran all night as usual and nothing else was on. I suspect there may be trouble ahead! I'll do some further checks and see if I can suss out what's going on.

Poo Stop

I fitted the Lee San Micro Vent today, so hopefully there'll be no more embarrassing odours emitting  from the poo tank especially in the Summer.

With charcoal filter installed.
