Booking System
A booking chart for the following calendar year is circulated, starting in August, in agreed priority order, and bookings are confirmed at the owners' annual meeting in October.

Each owner has a priority and moves up a couple of places each year, reverting to the bottom of the list after a year at the top.

Each owner chooses two weeks, separately or as fortnight, in the 'high season' (April to September, based on change-over days) and one week in the remainder of the year. Subject to a period designated for winter maintenance, the remaining weeks are offered with priority in reverse order to the original chart.

Extra bookings outside the above are confirmed on the first day of the month before the month of the booking, priority again being in reverse order if more than one owner requests the same date.
Priority for school holidays
A maximum of two 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 ten shares' contributions.
General comments about the boat

Starting at the semi trad stern, down the steps leads to the rear galley and dinette area where you will find a gas oven and hob, full size sink/drainer with storage underneath, 12volt fridge with freezer compartment, separate storage cupboard, solid fuel stove, side hatch and dinette that converts to a double bed. This is the heart of the living area offering a cosy area even on a windy winter's day.

Beyond this area a corridor (where a see-through 'window' is stored that can be fitted into the side hatch) - a door on the right leads to the bathroom with its corner bath with shower over, pump out toilet, hand basin with storage underneath and wall storage cupboard'
Another door now leads past the Alde central heating boiler into the master double bedroom which can be extended to full King size if required. Storage is provided with a wardrobe, two under bed drawers and two over bed lockers.

Moving forward again is a cupboard, then a second pump out toilet and washbasin on the right, then into the lounge area which has bench seating on either side that can be converted into single beds or a very large double across the full width of the boat. This area also has a 12volt TV, plus separate 240volt DVD player that is operated from the Inverter - these can be moved to the dinette area if required.

French doors at the front open out into the cratch area with its cushioned seating with storage underneath.

The steel was built by Graham Reeves and the internal fitting out was by Milburn Boats.

General Comments by vendor

If required an incoming owner can elect to have the share changed to one where each year going forward a school holiday priority can be secured. Please contact the vendor if this option appeals to you.

Tottleworth had a new engine in 2010 and a complete external repaint two or three years ago. The owners are currently upgrading various aspects of the boat during each winter maintenance period - last winter (2014/15) the galley work surfaces were renewed and a new gas hob and 12volt refrigerator were installed, the previous winter the bathroom was upgraded. This winter (2015/16) the floor coverings are to be renewed.

The 58ft length of 'Tottleworth' means that it can cruise to any part of the connected waterways - I have personally taken it to the Lancaster canal, Bristol, Basingstoke Canal, Wey navigation, Lee & Stort navigations and across all three trans Pennine routes and up the tidal Trent. These trips usually require arranging 'remote' changeovers but several owners are willing to consider such arrangements - I certainly am.

Tottleworth will be moored at Springwood Haven, near Nuneaton, for 2016 and a move to another location is likely to be discussed at our annual meeting - booked for Saturday October 29th near Northampton.

Most of Tottleworth's owners have been with her since she was launched in 2004, and several of us had shares in 'Sovereign' before that date.

We are a very happy group of 'Owners' and have successfully managed the boat ourselves since the demise of 'OwnerShips' in 2010 - we look forward to you joining us!
