Ramble on is a 47ft Traditional Narrowboat, that was built in 1979 by Hancock and Lane. She is offered as a project boat, due to the condition of the hull. A hull survey was undertaken in November 2021, which shows that extensive over-plating is needed, the boat has been priced accordingly to reflect the works required.
