BADGER was built as an FMC Josher, a narrow boat of composite construction with a Gardner 2LW diesel engine which was fitted in the 1970s as a replacement for her original 15hp Bolinder engine. She was built for the Fellows Morton & Clayton fleet and spent her entire working life in the North West fleet and spent many years paired with the butty NORTHWICH which is now in the Gloucester Museum.
At the time of registration, BADGER was in private use based in Furness Vale Upper Peak Forest Canal.
