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.

Busy day.

This morning woke bright and sunny and there were a lot of boats on the move. Some came flying past us and one in particular pulled the hooks through the armco on the pilings and jammed them in solid. I had to beat them with the club hammer and a mooring pin to free them. Some people have no respect.

I always set up a spring line wherever possible.
It helps prevent boat movement when the idiots go flying by.
We arrived in Braunston and we moored on Midland Chandlers wharf and purchased a new bow thruster battery. I fitted it straight away and sent the old one back, now we have some power at the front end.

We moved TQ away from the wharf and moored up on the opposite side where there was just enough space to get in.

Then we took a stroll down to The Admiral Nelson for lunch which was very nice. We had a hot dog each with a side dish of chips - delicious and we sat outside in the warm sunshine to demolish it.

We did a bit of shopping in the village and when we arrived back to TQ we reversed back beyond the junction then turned right toward Napton Junction. 

Along the way we were hoping there were going to be some vacant pilings to moor against but two of our favourite spots had been taken, so we found a nice little spot further up and we moored in there near Flecknoe.

Near Flecknoe.
There's been a lot of traffic on the canal today, It took about fifteen minutes to get away from last nights mooring, just as I was almost ready to leave, another boat would come round the corner and I'd have to tie up again and let it pass.

This evenings sunset.

And Lucy?...

More Zedsville!
