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.

What's that noise?

"That's a bit weird, I've not heard that before." It got louder and louder and then tailed off as a canoe paddled by in the ice. ICE? Oh! no, Yes, the cut was iced up, only thin ice thankfully, but it's enough to scare you into believing it could be thicker further on. The Sun was out in full glory but the air wasn't warm enough to do much melting. We had to make way, and so we ventured out into the now slushy stuff and it wasn't long before a boat came the other way making a nice track through it for us. It only lasted a couple of miles and then returned to water and that was the last we saw of it all day and the boat we saw ice breaking for us was the only one on the move.

We moored up just East of Br. 143 ready for Claydon Locks tomorrow, and two boats have now passed us, but it looks like the weather is going to play its part first thing.
