General comments by vendor

Eos (who is the Greek Goddess of the Dawn) is currently based at King's Bromley and will be there for 2022 and 2023 at least. 

This is an ideal base for a wide range of cruising trips in any season. The 4 Counties Ring, the Cheshire Ring, The Warwickshire Ring, the Black Country Ring, the Stourport Ring are readily available 2 week cruising rings. Birmingham, Stratford on Avon, Coventry, Oxford, Worcester, are also readily reached either as part of a ring or on a "there and back again" cruise. 

The Eos owners are a friendly group who all communicate on a regular basis by email and WhatsApp, keeping each other updated with anything relating to the boat and the area in which we are cruising. The syndicate has an elected committee (Chairman & Treasurer) who liaise with the Management Co (BCBM) and the other Owners. 

We have an annual general meeting in the Autumn (held by Zoom the last 2 years) where everything is discussed and agreed for the following year. 

In 2018 Eos had a full repaint, and in 2020 a new engine. So she should be good to go for several years.

She has a full inventory aboard including 30" screen TV and DVD, a wood burning stove, microwave, full size cooker and fridge with freezer compartment. 

The syndicate has elected to move Eos to a new base every 2-3 years. So far she has been based at Alvechurch, Gayton, Anderton, Reedley (Leeds & Liverpool) and now Kings Bromley (for at least 2022 & 2023). 

Running costs are reviewed annually at the AGM. The cost includes all gas, coal (coke), turnaround servicing, insurance, mooring charges, licences and management fees. All you pay for is diesel and pumpout. 

The syndicate has a healthy bank balance with a reserve fund to cover large expenditure (like the new engine in 2020/21).
