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.

That was a long and very enjoyable day.

We started out at 08:00 this morning and finished at 17:40, stopping only briefly at Tesco in Kidderminster.

Lincomb Lock was the first of the day, followed by the two staircase locks at Stourport. We were lucky here as the CART boys were going to close one of the locks and drain it to repair a paddle linkage, and we managed to get through in the nick of time.

Waiting for a boat to exit the lock at Stourport.
Excess water outflow.
This happens when the upper lock capacity is greater than the lower lock.

Lin lock wheeling.
More lock wheeling. York Street Lock this time.

From Stourport to Kidderminster and three locks later:-
Lin took this one from the boat, it's my turn to do some locks.
And in complete contrast from portrait to full landscape, here is the view from tonight's mooring:-

Oh! And Lucy?

And then I took this by accident:-

Lovely jubly!
