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 short cruise...

...from The Bridge at Napton to Wigrams Marina.

Arriving at the marina the Sun was reflecting off the water and I had a job to see where I was going, but managed to get us on the berth without too much bother from the wind. We jumped in the car and went to do some shopping in Southam. There's a nice Tesco there and Lin was in her element. We needed some essentials, but there were more than the essentials in the basket. "Where's your shopping list", I asked. "In here", said Lin, pointing to her head. We had only one basket, Lin picked it up on the way in, I elected not to have one - good move!

After a sandwich for lunch, I got down to the task of wiring up the new engine hour meter. I knew of one place for sure where it could be connected, but I really wanted to connect it to the back of the tacho and that wasn't going to be easy, so it was going to be the back of the domestic alternator. I checked out, using a meter, which connection to use, threaded the wire around the engine and terminated it using a crimp. Then I connected it to the appropriate connection. Switched on the ignition, hour meter not working - correct. Fire up the engine, hour meter working - also correct.

Rain is forecast for tomorrow - what a surprise!
