General comments by vendor
Weeks are always numbered from the first Sunday in January (which is week 1).
After seven years with the group we are selling our share to allow us to try other things plus we have to travel from Germany.
The beginning of November is actually a great time to be out on the waterways. The canals are quiet and the weather is better than you might expect. Whilst we have had rain, it was never more than an hour and we have always had many more sunny days than wet ones.
Meridian is very efficiently managed by an enthusiastic committee. At the AGM it is decided which projects will be undertaken during the next year so that the boat is being carefully maintained and constantly upgraded. This winter the electrics will be upgraded.
Each owner has a share certificate per week owned plus a key to enter the boat.
Owners have an AGM every year and discuss running costs and expenditure on the boat. For 2020 it has been set at £350 per week owned.
In addition, it is a rule that at the end of your week, Meridian is valeted, has a pump out and topped up with fuel and water, ready for the next owner.
