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 stayed put.

Loads of work done today, polishing mainly. The paintwork hasn't been polished for some considerable time and it showed. It needs doing again very soon to build up a more permanant shine. I have to confess though, I've done the port side and a few bits and pieces here and there where it was particularly bad, but i've not done the starboard side yet. All the outer doors have been off and the hinge pins cleaned and lubricated and most of the brass polished too, including the bits often missed...

The fuel boat Southern Cross (Jules Fuels) came by this morning and I flagged him down. We filled with diesel at a very reasonable price and another moorer nearby bought a couple of bags of coal.

Breasted up alongside TQ.

Sorting the paperwork.

...And on to the next customer.
Many thanks, see you again.
It came over all dark at tea time and we had a few spots of rain. Actually it looked like there was going to be a massive flash and a bang, but it didn't happen.

That's gone over.
...And now I'm having tea listening to Pink Floyd's The Division Bell and my glass is...

...half full.

Doing what she does best. x
