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.

We have moved, but not far.

After the mornings ablutions and breakfast, I got down and dirty in the engine 'ole. All the belts needed tightening, the engine coolant needed topping up and the bilge had to be pumped. While I was down there I checked the air filter. It was in a poor state so I changed it and popped over to Calcutt to buy an oil filter and spare air filter. The daily engine checks were carried out and the engine started. (First time). The strong wind had dropped so plans were made to leave the marina and head to Braunston, but then it rained so we postponed our journey until after the rain stopped. Suddenly the sun came out so we slipped our mooring and headed towards our destination. The black clouds soon caught up with us and the wind strengthened again so we moored up near bridge 101 and the gales had one final blast before abating by dusk.
The draught proofing is working, it's much warmer inside the stern end of the boat now.
Air filters - Out with the old, in with the new.
