A booking chart for the following year is circulated before the owners annual meeting. Each owner can choose two weeks (separately or as a fortnight) in the 'high season' (April to September inclusive) and one week in the remainder of the year. Each owner has a priority for that year and moves up a couple of places each year. Allowing time for winter maintenance, the remaining weeks are bid for with priority in reverse order to the original chart. After six years the cycle begins again.
|Priority for school holidays||
Two designated "special" shares at present (correct 2013) have priority booking of school holiday weeks and pay a higher proportion of the costs than "ordinary" shares thus reducing the other ten sharers contributions.

General Comments by vendor
Huxley is a well thought out narrow boat built by Milburn boats to a high standard nicely finished off interior with diagonal planking. Sleeping for six if desired in three separate areas. NB. the boat is easily handled by two and as such provides spacious accommodation.
The boat has a Webasto diesel fired central heating radiator system, with push button control. When not using the central heating a traditional multi-fuel stove burning wood or coal brickets provides ample heat in the saloon.
Huxley has a Victron twin charging system installed, after it was built, which allows charging of the batteries when moored as well as 240 volt power from a shoreline.
The bow thrusters are hydraulic and make for easy manoeuvring.
The satellite system mounted on the roof is self seeking and provides a good picture to the flat screen monitor, there is a position in the saloon and a TV point in the aft cabin.
All in all Huxley is a very comfortable and up to date narrow boat.
