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 holidaysUp to 2 special shares:-

Special share owners are sent the booking chart before any other owners and can 
choose school holiday weeks.

General comments by vendor

Pendeford is a well maintained semi-trad narrow boat.

The boat is operated privately by its share owners, who are a friendly group and share the tasks involved to provide very enjoyable and economical holidays for all.

Pendeford is professionally maintained both annually for the main 'winter service' and at regular nominated times during the cruising season. (Engine services are approx. every 6 weeks and noted on the annual booking chart.)

At the beginning of 2019 we moved the boat to Aqueduct Marina and this gives easy access to a large number of cruising routes including the Llangollen Canal and the Four Counties Ring. 

When the engine was reconditioned in 2012, an Axiom high performance propeller was fitted which significantly improved the boat handling performance and stopping distance. This also gave an estimated 10 to 20% improvement in fuel efficiency.
