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 pub lunch and and a Winter arrangement

We drove the car to Braunston today to do a little shopping and some gongoozling. Driving through a place you're familliar with by canal is totally different by car, and you have the problem of parking it, often in a tight space. We parked in Bottom Lock Chandlery car park and bought some supplies for the boats' engine.

Then we did some gongoozling and took a stroll down to Braunston Marina where I made some enquiries about our Winter Maintenance programme. Unfortunately they couldn't help us until Easter next year, way too late for us, but they recommended Wharf House Narrowboats and I paid them a visit. Very accommodating and friendly service and now I have an initial idea of what can be done, how long and at what cost.

Bottom Lock, Braunston

They need to see TQ to give a more accurate estimate and I'll try and arrange that this week or early next.

We then strolled over to the Admiral Nelson for lunch which was very nice, Fish and Chips washed down with a pint of Guinness. Actually, it was better than very nice.

More tomorrow...
