General comments by vendor
Booking slots move spaces annually to ensure fairness.
Private swops allowed and weeks not required can be sold to another member at going rate of 3 x monthly payment.
Having been owners since day one Madge has provided us with many fantastic holidays. The group has had many changes but always managed to run Madge in a friendly and sensible manner.
The AGM at the end of Jan. is normally held at a location not too far from our base and usually ends up with a social evening for those who decide to stay for the night .
Over the years Madge has been well looked after and improvements made.
We have membership of River Canal Rescue (RCR) which is effectively the AA of the canal network.
The only spend on the horizon , other than routine, is a possible paint job but nothing finalised yet. We usually have an annual paint touch-up which has served us well in maintaining the overall appearance of the boat.
Every effort will be made to arrange a viewing but will need to fit in with members use.
