Booking systemEach owner chooses three weeks per year,
two between April and September inclusive,
and one from any other month.

The list of owners rotates in pairs each year
giving everyone a chance to choose their weeks
first or second over a six year period.

Apart from two weeks put aside over the winter for maintenance,
all other weeks are available as extras, priority being given to
those at the bottom of the list. In fact, there is seldom competition
for the extra weeks.
Priority for school holidaysAt present, one owner has special arrangements
for school holidays.

The rules allow for up to two
owners to have this status in any year, for a
slightly higher contribution to the running costs
(correct as at 2023).

General comments by vendor

The other shareholders are a considerate and conscientious group with many years' experience of operating a narrowboat. The home marina is reviewed periodically and can change, by concensus, to retain novelty and explore new waterways.
