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.

We've stopped early

Slipped the moorings at around 09:00, passed through the two Hack Green Locks and arrived in Nantwich around 11:00 when it started to rain. I knew it was going to rain as I'd polished the starboard side yesterday evening, although it arrived later than expected.

We walked into the town to get some provisions and all the way out to T & G Builder's Merchant for some wood and screws to finish off the front and rear locker covers. I had to buy a piece of wood 2.4 metres long which was going to be a bit awkward to carry, so I asked if it could be cut in half. Without a tape measure to hand, I balanced it out and asked the chap to "cut it here". It was within a millimetre - engineer's eye! 😉

It's a long walk into the town centre, and a long walk from the town centre to the builder's merchant and our legs were aching a bit by the time we got back to TQ.

Later I cut the wood into four lengths and drilled some holes in them for the screws. Then I treated them with Cuprinol 5 star wood preserver and attached them to the underside of the covers.

Stops the lid sliding off when you step on it.

I just have to say:- Steak for dinner!

...And Lucy?

Shhh! Zedsville again.
