A booking chart for the following calendar year is circulated by e-mail in agreed priority order in the autumn. 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 September 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.
The boat "year" for bookings is April-March

General Comments by vendor
Shelton is a fully managed boat with a group of friendly and enthusiastic owners. We keep in touch mainly by e-mail, where any problems and suggestions may be raised. Each year there is an AGM when matters are discussed in more detail.
Regular maintenance and servicing is covered by a contract with the marina, who also carry out the winter works. Most owners, however, deal with minor repairs themselves.
Before changeover day, owners must ensure that the toilets are pumped out, and that fuel, water and gas are replenished ready for the next owners. All this can be done in the marina, whose staff are ready to assist if required. We have an arrangement with a local company for an internal valet on each changeover day.
Shelton is a comfortable, modern boat fitted with light wood panelling and kitchen cupboards and has modern wall lights, fitted with LED bulbs for economy. The head room is particularly good, and there is no “ducking”, even in the shower!
Mains 240V electricity is available from an inverter using battery power or from a shore supply, if connected. 12V d.c. cigar lighter points powered from the domestic batteries are fitted at various locations.
Domestic hot water is heated by the engine, gas boiler or shore electricity. Central heating is from the gas boiler or shore electricity. The gas bottle and a spare are located in a stern locker.
In fine weather it is very pleasant to make use of the comfortable sitting area in the bow, where there is a removable table.
(Correct for 2016 location, this marina may change)
In the marina at Anderton, we have our own berth, with individual access
to shore electricity, covered by a pre-paid card. In less
congenial weather, therefore, it is possible to stay in the
marina, using the boat as a base.
