“RAM” makes its entrance onto the Ashby Canal

Further to the post on 2nd December, the ACA has now completed the purchase of a workboat. Because its engine is included but not installed, ex-Rothern Group’s workboat “RAM” has to be towed to its temporary mooring at Ashby Canal Centre, Stoke Golding. There, ACA member and marine engineer, Martyn Plant, will restore and replace the engine. In addition RAM will be tidied up and painted in ACA colours of cream and red.

The photos below show RAM entering the Ashby Canal at Marston Junction on 20th December 2020.
