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.

A dash for home to beat the weather.

After seeing the weather forecast, we decided it would be a better idea to call it a day and make a dash for home.

A dramatic sunrise.

Looking ominous.

We called in to Venetian Marina to fill with diesel but they couldn't do the pump out because it was on the wrong side of the boat, so the pump out had to be done at Aqueduct.

Everything was packed away into the car and we made the mad dash down the M6 and M5. Hell, it was busy, lane closures, accidents, speed limits, (made pointless because the traffic was at a standstill) 30mph through Brum, but you'd be lucky to do 10. It took four hours to get home, but I was very pleased with the fuel consumption, there and back on a full tank with a drop to spare, about 34 mpg. Not bad for an 18 year old 2.5ltr V6.

And Lucy was as good as gold...

Pleased to be home.
