General comments by vendor
Jemima D is a 34ft, four (possibly five) berth, simple narrowboat with no frills (no shower). She has a permanent mooring in rural Staffordshire, but normally travels around the system during spring and summer, returning to her winter home in autumn.
We have members from across the country, from Brighton and Somerset, up to Middlesbrough.
Jemima is owned and run by a co-operative. What this means is that all members have an equal say in what happens in the co-op, and have to be willing to work together and to participate in decision making.
It also means that everyone has an equal responsibility for running the co-op and maintaining Jemima, within the limits of their skills, ability and circumstances.
There are a few particular roles, such as bookings coordinator, webmaster, treasurer and maintenance co-ordinator, that members may take on for a while and then pass on to other members.
Twice a year as many of us as possible meet up, bringing food to share, to socialise and discuss co-op business (but recently we have been meeting via Zoom). There is also an e-mail list and a WhatsApp group for discussions and messages. And you can find us on Facebook
The Jemima D Narrowboat Co-operative's Aims and Objectives are to own and use the boat co-operatively for members to have non-sexist, non-racist, non-ageist, non-etc, enjoyable holidays on the canals.
There are 12 shares, each costing the price as shown above (a one-off payment), plus annual subs, again as shown above, which cover regular maintenance, Canal & River Trust (CaRT) licences, mooring fees and insurance.
There is also a modest usage cost of £50 per week, or £10 per day, although any consumables bought while on board, such as gas, diesel, etc can be reclaimed from central funds.
The boat had a full survey in 2022 and a copy is available for anyone to read should they request it.
We have our own web site at http://www.jemima-d.org.uk/
