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've arrived at Wigrams and I had no trouble mooring on the jetty. As I thought, the wind direction compensated for the strength. The only thing is TQ is facing the wrong way for diesel and pump-out tomorrow morning. We'll tackle that problem when it arrives.
Windy 'ol Wigrams.
Tomorrow we head back to Braunston where TQ is going to be having some work done. More on that another time, but first we have to sort out our transport arrangements.
We saw in the New Year, something we rarely do, but last night at midnight the skies erupted with colourful firework displays all around.
This morning it has turned mild and windy - very windy, from the South-South-West. It's not the worst direction to have the wind from, I should be able to get back onto the jetty in the marina without too much trouble.
