General comments by vendor

In April 2018, EOS has just had its first complete bare metal repaint and is repainted in its original colours of greens with a cream detail lining. New artwork depicting EOS (Goddess of the Dawn) has also been sign-written on both sides. 

The Syndicate itself appoints a Chairman, Treasurer and Technical Support from within its members, to monitor the Service provided by BCBM.

The Syndicate has elected to move Eos every 2-3 years. Having started at Alvechurch, she moved to Gayton and is now based at Anderton. Following some research by one of the Syndicate members, we have now voted that our next Mooring will be at Reedley Marina on the Leeds Liverpool canal from 2019-2021.Running costs are currently £125pm and are reviewed at each AGM held in the autumn each year. This cost includes all gas, coal, turnaround, servicing charges as well as insurance, mooring, licences, management fees etc. The only other costs incurred for cruising, are fuel and pump-outs. This level of monthly fee allowed a fund to be built up which covered this year's bare metal repainting with no call for cash from Syndicate members. 

An AGM is held each Autumn, where members meet to discuss plans for the future.
