Booking systemA booking chart for the following calendar year is circulated
in agreed priority order before the owners’ annual meeting,
where the bookings for the next year are confirmed. 

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-three weeks are
 firmly booked before the year begins. 

Allowing for time for winter maintenance, the remaining seventeen
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 holidaysSome shareholders have "School Holiday" priority.

General Comments About the Boat

This rear is a semi-trad layout with enclosed area and gas locker/ seat. 

You descend steps into the galley, with oven, hob, fridge, microwave and good work-surface area which is an open plan area with the rear saloon containing a multi-fuel stove in addition to three radiators, fold away table, hinged side hatch, reading lights and TV point. 

The L shaped seating area converts easily to a double bed, and there are sturdy storage drawers beneath. 

A doorway leads onto a short passageway with an entrance to the rear bathroom and toilet. Here there is a hand-basin, pump out flush toilet, and corner bath with shower over and tiled/ mirror surround. There are three storage cupboards in the bathroom, radiator and extractor fan. 

In the passageway there is a recessed Alde gas central heating boiler, and a second door leads to a fixed double cabin. There are reading lights, two clothes cupboards, two storage drawers, and a wardrobe. The bed is longer than a standard mattress. 

The self contained forward cabin has an en-suite toilet and hand-basin; two single bunks that very simply form a double, There is a TV / DVD player, and a cabinet under, radiator and reading lights, with a wardrobe and ample under bunk storage. 

The forward glass doors hinge backwards to form a boat-wide 'French Window' and access to the 'cratch' area. 

The front is glazed, and the cover has a window on each side. In this forward area there are 4 under-seat lockers for storage of fuel, extra fenders, folding chairs etc. The large capacity water tank is under the bow deck.

General comments by vendor

Honeystreet is run by a very conscientious and loving syndicate who really care for the boat. 

Honeystreet is moved every so often around the cut, the destination being decided by majority vote by the syndicate members. She is regularly maintained; her engine was replaced in 2013.

We have found her a lovely boat to use.
