An AGM is held in September/October in the Midlands; usually Alvechurch Marina, Redditch. One item on the agenda is the drawing of weeks.
The year is divided up into 4 seasons; Spring- March to May, Summer- June to August, Autumn- September to Mid November, and Winter- Mid November to February. We draw at the meeting for all our 4 weeks; one week per season.
We then spend the next 20/30 minutes circulating with other owners to exchange dates to find the most suitable for everybody. Cordiality and camaraderie always prevails amongst everyone.

|Reason for selling||
Have been an owner on this boat since new. Enjoyed every moment and never thought the day would come when we thought we would be thinking of curtailing our Black Watch activities. However have become much less agile after a replacement knee operation, and am having to place more onus on my wife for mooring and lock activities.

General Comments by vendor
The boat has been well maintained throughout the 13 years we have had a share in it.
In December 2017, it is having a complete repaint at Anderton Marina at a cost of approx. £9000. This is already held in our reserve account.
As a syndicate, we believe in funding a reserve account and this is why our monthly payments are being kept at £110 per month to help fund that reserve account. However, this level of contribution is reviewed every year at our AGM.
On selling our share, our contribution put in the reserve account simply hands over to the new owner. We anticipate having to renew the engine in approx. 3-4 years time; although we are told it could be longer, but the funds in the reserve account should be sufficient to fund that without having to contribute extra.
An owner, subsequently finding
he/she is unable to take their allocated week, will notify
the managing agents, who will then offer it by e-mail to the
other owners. This more often occurs in the winter months
