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.

Back to Base

We waited for our friends aboard N. B. Kernow to catch up with us this morning and then we toddled off together in convoy to Wigrams. I say in convoy because it was very busy along this stretch of the canal, we were last in a long line of boats all heading toward Napton Junction. While we were moored up, about half of the passing boats didn't slow down at all and most of the rest only dropped back to half throttle once they'd got here, and then opened up again before having passed. No respect at all, but our spring line put a stop to all the bankside bumping which occurs without it.

I took our friends Dave and Anne to Braunston to collect their car and when I got back I polished TQ to within an inch and now she looks like a new pin.
Front and...
I have to say, we have experienced the best weather ever aboard TQ this holiday. Usually for us the rain is horizontal, and the temperature rarely rises above 10 Celsius, but this time we've hit it right. Hopefully our fortune has changed.

Tomorrow we take the long sprint all the way back to Zunny Zumerzet.
