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.

Visitor moorings between Bridges 26 and 27 to a spot between Bridges 9 and 10.

Achieved a lot today, although again not traveled a great distance, it was a day of two halves. The first half got us into Kidderminster where we moored under the Church...

A prime photo spot is this, I tell thee.
Some shopping was done (don't be surprised) by us both. Lin bought two waterproof coats for us in the hope that there will be no more rain, and some steak and a disposable BBQ.

I bought a clamp (£2.99 in The Range), all will become clear in the next few days, and a power polishing mop. TQ's paint is really dull, it's the worst I've seen it, I've tried to polish it by hand but it's such hard work, I'll be here 'til Christmas.

We moved out to a mooring between Bridges 9 and 10, dropped the hooks in and got down to some polishing. Well that's the machine for the job, one whole side done with T-Cut. I'll put some carnauba wax on tomorrow. Looking good.

Just a cheap one from Argos, but does the job admirably.
More tomorrow...
