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.

Cruising day.

After heavy rain this morning I carried out the daily checks, started the engine (first time) and we slipped our moorings at around 10:30 and continued our journey toward Braunston. Stopping at the water point we filled the tank, and then winded and headed for the empty mooring we spotted on the way outside the The Boathouse. Lin posted a parcel and then we had lunch, well, having moored here it would be rude not to. We had Steak and ale pie, chips and peas, and very nice it was too, all washed down with a pint of Hob Goblin.

With lunch firmly packed away we headed off up the Grand Union toward Hillmorton. The intention was to find a mooring spot on the way to the winding hole just the other side of Bridge 74, turn and moor up. By this time daylight was getting in short supply and we just managed to find a spot near Br. 75 before it became too dark.
