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.

Quite a successful day.

We had some heavy rain this morning, but fortunately it was all gone by the time Michael Allen the BSS examiner arrived. Yes, the dreaded Boaters MoT, and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I did some research into this beforehand and there are pages and pages of impossible to comprehend text. Michael was quick to put me at ease and the test was over inside the hour. It seems 99% of all that is written doesn't apply. Anyway, the upshot is, TQ passed with flying colours.

Items inspected include the gas system, hob, grill and oven. Our Bubble Stove was checked to make sure it was bolted down and is sealed properly, fire extinguishers, type, quantity and Kite mark, ventilation mushrooms and bulkhead grilles, batteries, wiring, fuel system etc. etc.

Later we departed our mooring and headed to Braunston in brilliant sunshine only to be heavily rained on just before the junction. We could see it coming from a ¼ mile away and then it suddenly arrived, so it was out with the brolly until we sheltered under Bridge 88 and waited for it to subside. We found a mooring soon after and have settled in for the night.

Here's some pictures of today:-
