|Booking system||A booking chart for the following calendar year is circulated in |
agreed priority order before the owners’ annual meeting, 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,
so having last choice originally does have its compensations.
These extra bookings are confirmed on the first day of the
month before the month of the booking
|Priority for school holidays||Two designated "special" shares have priority booking |
of school holiday weeks and pay a higher proportion of
the costs than "ordinary" shares at a rate of 120%
thus reducing the other 10 shares contributions
General Comments About the Boat
Winthorpe, built by Hexagon, is a semi-trad boat with bow and stern thrusters. Gas bottle and lock operating equipment storage is in a locker/seating area on the left-hand side of the rear deck, under which is a well-serviced 4 cylinder Nanni Diesel engine (powering a hydraulic drive system meaning it is very quiet), with the calorifier and battery banks.
Down the cockpit down steps, you pass the en suite rear toilet with wash basin. To the right of the toilet is a cupboard with hanging space. You then reach main bedroom with a double bed with drawer storage underneath. There is a satellite TV and DVD player, and a radiator. The controls to the Alde boiler are above the bed.
Next is the main bathroom, which has a wash basin with a storage cupboard underneath, shower, pump-out toilet and a heated towel rail.
This is followed by another cupboard with hanging space, below which is the freezer.
Then we enter the galley with the oven below a work surface, followed by the stainless steel sink unit. Next to the sink is the hob, surrounded by further work surfaces, underneath which is the fridge. There are cupboards beneath the work surfaces, as well as on the wall facing the sink, together with wall cupboards and a microwave. The kitchen is well equipped with a full range of saucepans, utensils, cutlery, crockery, glasses and basic cleaning materials.
The dining area has a glazed opening side hatch in the right-hand wall. There is an L-shaped dinette on the left, which sits six when using the two collapsible chairs that are kept on board. This also pulls out to make up into a double bed and has locker space under the seating, containing the relevant duvets and pillows and stored underneath are 2 blow up mattresses with electric pump, providing 2 extra occasional beds, with all necessary bedding. Going towards the bow there is the solid fuel stove to the left, and a further radiator on the right hand wall, past which is the lounge. This features two "Captains" leather chairs, and a TV, radio and DVD player.

General comments by vendor
The boat is equipped to a high tech level. There is a self-seeking satellite system, with TV and DVD capability in the lounge and main bedroom. It was completely repainted in 2018 and looks a picture - she turns heads and draws nice comments on the canal. All routine maintenance equipment is kept aboard, including a tool kit, touch up paints and brushes.
There is a website accessible to owners through which relevant information is distributed to owners, including accounts, service dates and similar useful matters. There is also an annual AGM for owners to hold discussions and socialise.
The boat has bow and stern thrusters. All ropes and fenders are in good condition. The boat also has Gold Standard RCR membership.
