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.

Lazy day.

The Sun was up before we were this morning, and after a good night's sleep, showers and breakfast all round we waited for the Red Cross parcel to arrive. One can of coke had punctured so they let us have the eight-pack for free.

Haven't done much today other than re-drill and tap the holes for the centre cleat and the control panel door was falling apart so I've glued and screwed it back together.

Cleat refitted. I'll need to change the screws for brass ones.
Control panel door repaired.

No word on when the Starter Motor and Travel Power Pack are likely to be returning, I'll have to see Sandy to find out if he knows anything.

The internet connection here is dire on 3, I have to mount the tablet on the rear sliding hatch to get a signal and then it's only just a signal, uploading takes for ever. The local wi-fi doesn't work, being maxed out there's not enough bandwidth, and there's no mobile phone service whatsoever on EE.

One thing, the weather has been very kind.

More tomorrow...
