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.

The beautiful Shroppie.

There's some lovely scenery along here, but before we arrived at Brewood there were loads of moored boats so it was tick-over all the way.

Through the lock and we filled with water and disposed of the rubbish, and then we pootled on up to Turners and filled with diesel. Well it would be rude not to at 58.9p a litre.

Leaning Ash Cutting

We managed to moor right opposite the pump on the 48hr visitor moorings, a nice spot handy for the Hartley Arms, need I say any more?

Our bow thruster has been making some odd noises lately, so I just had to investigate. When the impeller was replaced the weed hatch wasn't sealed and was suckling air in one direction. Now it's sealed and the odd noise has stopped.

Sealed properly.

I bailed out the water in the bow thruster hold and attempted to seal the lid with silicone. Don't know if it's going to work, we'll have to wait and see.
