General comments by vendor
DASQUE was spotted for sale 20 years ago by one member who persuaded others to join in. Some of the original members are still members and others have been recruited by friends of friends. We maintain the boat between us but are GOLD RCR members. The engine has recently been overhauled by Calcutt Boats (BMC specialists).
As there are no "out and back to base" rules, the next crew takes over from wherever you end your holiday. This way you get to experience a wide range of canals and waterways. Members tend to help each with transport at the various hand-over locations. The boat is left clean, fuel and water tanks are filled and the toilet cassettes emptied, ready for the hand-over to the next members.
The day to day affairs of the group are managed by all members with reference to the chair and boat manager. We hold one general meeting each year in January to elect the Committee, discuss any matters concerning the boat, agree the maintenance actions for the winter, and formulate the holiday rota. We use email and wattsap throughout the year
