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.

Last job completed. Now I'm on holiday.

Yeah, the new bathroom extractor fan is fitted. No problem with this one, twist the bezel to remove it and unscrew the four (three in this case) retaining screws. Disconnect the wires and connect the new fan. Refit the screws and bezel and swap the halogen capsule for the LED. Job done.

The Kenwood mini mixer we use for Lucy's food developed a bare wire where it enters the cable strain. The conductor wasn't exposed, but the inner insulation was.
It's held together with two normal screws and one security screw which meant a modification to a cheap (Christmas cracker) screwdriver. The cable is soldered into a circuit board so it was out with the soldering iron to remove the old wires and re-terminate after cutting off the damaged cable. Another one done, almost as good as new.
Lucy's mini mixer.

This is where the damage was.
