Booking system
Four seasons are identified: 
Spring (Feb/May), Summer (June/Aug), Autumn (Sept/Oct) and Winter (Nov/Feb). 
Each owner is allocated one week in each season.

Each year a ballot takes place and each owner states their order of preference 
for the weeks in each season. 

Each owner has for each season an allocated preference order for that year from 
first to last. Each year that preference moves up until 1st then it drops to last 
the following year.

Weeks are then allocated according to the preferences and the order of priority. 
So the person in that season with first choice receives their first choice and 
the person with second choice receives their first choice if available or 
their second choice if not and so on.

After allocation owners can exchange weeks.
Priority for school holidaysNone other than cooperation between owners

General comments by vendor

This is a friendly, seasoned group of boaters who maintain the boat between them. Several members have taken leading roles to organise maintenance, ballot for weeks and twice yearly owners meetings. The present committee have been in place for a long time and perform a job of keeping the syndicate running smoothly and efficiently. At the owner meetings items for maintenance and future moorings are agreed between the owners.
The boat is well-maintained and equipped to a high standard. Over the years the syndicate has organised a wide range of improvement works ranging from refurbishing the galley and bathroom to a full external repaint. The boat was given a clean bill of health in a recent BSS survey and an independent insurance inspection.
The regular payments to the syndicate are used to build up a contingency or reserve fund. These are currently in a healthy position. As a result payments have reduced to £50 per month per share.
The boat is usually moved every 18 months to two years to a new mooring by mutual consent. This gives a variety of boating. Members arrange between themselves if they wish to make a remote handover so that one owner can take the boat out in their week and the other owner bring it back in theirs. Otherwise owners do a round trip finishing back at the base.
The boat is warm and comfortable with plenty of equipment on board. There is a satellite TV, DVD player and a traditional wood burning stove as well as a gas boiler radiator heating system.
