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.

Things have gone awry with my mobile broadband - and I ain't 'appy.

I'm sorry this is all a bit late, I've been having some trouble with "3" the mobile network. I tried loading my account with a gigabyte of data allowance and sure enough it appeared on their website as having been credited but it wouldn't allow me to go to any website stating I had run out of data and would I like to top up. (No, actually). However I have succumbed to their demands and topped up again in order to be able to use data. Now, not only do I have 1024mb allowance, but an extra £10.00 credit... Aarrgghh!

A Wet Start

For some reason the car gets fuller each time we take a holiday on TQ. This time there were talks of taking two cars! With the Omega filled on Saturday night, there was more to go in on Sunday morning and so the logs had to be left behind to make space for Lucy and the food despite us having another load delivered on Monday! Talking of Lucy, (our cat) we dundled her into her transit basket and carried her out to the car and she complained bitterly. It was then I discovered she'd wet her panties, so it was back into the house to change her dyper. The  journey was by enlarge, quiet with little traffic the whole way, and the sat-nav didn't play up this time which helped.
On arrival we found TQ cold and damp, not surprising given the recent weather contitions, so it was on with the central heating to help air the boat out and get Lucy's sleeping, eating and …[too much information]… arrangements sorted. Then it was our turn, to bring our stuff over - four trolley loads would you believe?
All my tools, oil for the engine service, empty oil containers for waste oil, parts for fitting i.e. ignition switch, draught excluder and all the usual boaty stuff plus Christmas stuff.
We're now all settled in, and looking forward to Christmas.
There'll be pictures tomorrow, see you then.
