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're here at last.

It's been a while since I last posted, Three in their wisdom wouldn't let me upload credit to my account last time, but this time they've updated their website and made it a little easier and managed to load up without a problem.

Had an awful journey up the M5 and M6, heavy rain all the way, started out at 04:40 and arrived at around 08:00. Couldn't do much more than 60 in most places due to spray and visibility, and then there were 50 mph limits in various places and 30 mph through Brum.

We unloaded the car and loaded the boat and went through the usual checks and got ourselves under way.

Through Minshull Lock, Cholmondeston Lock and ended up moored outside the Barbridge Inn where we met a couple who were interested in purchasing a share. We showed them around, explained the detail, and I think they went away with their heads full of info to mull over.

What's next? Into the pub of course, and we started with a curried parsnip soup followed by a Butchers Platter and very nice it was too.

Later, back in TQ, we crashed...

Nice and warmy.
