General comments by vendor
Weeks are always numbered from the first Sunday in January (which is week 1).
We have enjoyed 14 years with our 1 week on Meridian, it has scratched my "boat itch" without the cost/worry and responsibility of owning an entire boat
Easter is usually over so the waterways tend to be quiet but all services/pubs/wharfs etc are open for business and the weather can be kind too.
With spring in the air the fields are full of newborn, the canal teeming with ducklings and cygnets and trees bright green with new leaf and it's a lovely time to witness the beauty of the UK.
I have served on the committe as secretary and then treasurer and the owners group is very active and keen to continue investing in Meridian to ensure she maintains her value and attractiveness.
The October AGM is well attended and every few years Meridian is moved to a new marina to enjoy a different cruising area.
