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.

I paid a visit to Tranquility today to get a few maintenance jobs done. There's been some embarrassing smells emitting from the tank vent when the loo is flushed and I discovered that there's no charcoal filter fitted, nor a housing to put it in. I'm thinking that perhaps we ought to get one...

It's that big white pipe in the middle.

Our dashboard has been looking a little "old" lately and so it was decided at the AGM earlier in the year to replace the gauges worst affected...



The last person to use TQ reported that the flue needed resealing - Job done.

Just needs some black BBQ paint to finish it off.

As always with TQ the bilge and engine bund have loads of water in them and I took my wet and dry vacuum cleaner with me and sucked it all out and made it all a bit cleaner. I also gave the firewall a wipe down, it was black with soot after the holed exhaust escapade two years ago.
Clean - ish.

Also on the list, I filled the stern tube greaser, fitted a new Co alarm, cleaned out the deck gutter and drain pipes and glued and sealed the trading hatch inner frame, though it requires a little more work, that'll be done over Christmas.
