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.

Rain, sun and showers, and the Spanish GP.

Woke up in the night to heavy rain, and mooring under a tree didn't help, it made it sound heavier. And then there was the mess washed off the tree onto the boat, we left it to dry before cleaning it off, it made it much easier.

The day started with brilliant sunshine and warm with it too, but later it slowly clouded in and we had a few showers in the afternoon.

The obligatory photo of Bridge 39.

Before setting off I repaired the tunnel light. I thought the lamp had blown but further investigation showed a broken connection. The wiring had gone brittle inside so I replaced it with new and also with new connectors.

We left Wheaton Aston and chugged up the cut to Bridge 47 where there are ringed visitor moorings, and although the old Shroppie Shelf is here, it didn't pose a problem.

Along the way...

Norbury Junction.

It was packed with gongoozlers.

Settled in for the evening and watched a fairly exciting Spanish Grand Prix.
