A booking chart for the following calendar year is circulated in agreed priority order during the autumn and before the owners’ annual meeting in November, where the bookings for the next year are confirmed.
Each owner has a priority for that year, and moves up a couple of places each year: after a year at the top of the list, the owner then starts at the bottom, and after six years the cycle begins again.
Each owner can choose two weeks (separately or as a fortnight) in the ‘high season’ (April to October inclusive), and one week in the remainder of the year. By this route, thirty-six weeks are firmly booked before the year begins.
Allowing for time for winter maintenance, the remaining fourteen weeks are booked with priority in reverse order to the original chart.
|Priority for school holidays||
Some shareholders have "School Holiday" priority.

General Comments by vendor
Honeystreet is run by a very conscientious and loving syndicate who really care for the boat.
Honeystreet is moved every so often around the cut, the destination being decided by majority vote by the syndicate members. She is regularly maintained; her engine was replaced in 2013 and upholstery/bedding for 2017. We have found her a lovely boat to use.
We were totally new to narrow boats before becoming owners of Honeystreet but found it a joyous way to enjoy the countryside.
