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.

The half way point

Today I'm half way through a two week holiday, spent so far rebuilding our bathroom into a shower room. It's been one of those jobs where you open a can of worms, literally with the state of the floor boards, and the joists didn't fair much better, so the whole lot came out right down to bare earth. Everything has been renewed, the plumbing, drainage, soil pipe etc. etc. Now there are tiles on the wall, the basin is fitted and working as is the toilet. But I've had to leave it all to go on holiday!
Not that I'm complaining, you understand...

Well, I've torn myself away from all that to spend the second week aboard TQ. Lucy, our cat has come with us and she's settled in really well, so no complaints from her.
This week there are some jobs to be done, tomorrow we cruise all the way to Calcutt to have a detent ball and spring fitted in the gearbox, and on Tuesday we're having the BSS examination done. Already I've repaired the hob ignition button - it was full of fat and needed cleaning, but really needs replacement. I'll see if I can get one later in the week.
