A booking chart for the following calendar year is circulated in priority order before the owners’ annual meeting. Each owner has a priority for that year, and moves up a couple of places each year: after a year at the top of the list, the owner then starts at the bottom, and after six years the cycle begins again.
Each owner can choose two weeks (separately or as a fortnight) in the ‘high season’ (April to October inclusive), and one week in the remainder of the year.
By this route, thirty-six weeks are firmly booked before the year begins. Allowing for time for winter maintenance, the remaining fourteen weeks are booked with priority in reverse order to the original chart, so having last choice originally does have its compensations. These extra bookings are confirmed on the first day of the month before the month of the booking.
|Priority for school holidays||
Up to three designated "special" shares have priority booking of school holiday weeks and pay a higher proportion of the costs than "ordinary" shares thus reducing the other nine shares contributions.

General Comments by vendor
Launched in July 2003 as part of the Ownerships fleet then Managed by BCBM and then ABC, Kinver is now self managed.
The boat has been very well maintained with regular servicing and full annual maintenance, blacking and painting where necessary.
The engine was replaced with a Beta Marine 43 in August 2013 a 2500W/80A inverter/charger was also fitted that year to help maintain the battery bank. New batteries fitted (2016).
The very friendly and co-operative syndicate decided to self-manage from October 2014 as we felt we had enough experience, time and know-how between us to take Kinver into her next decade of canal and river cruising.
