Malanka started off as Manka (names get shortened over the years but this one got longer) in 1953. I was told the name was changed because Manka looked too much like another name Evil Grin  I can,t be 100% sure that this first picture is Manka but I am 99% It is when all 3 boats were just built and are awaiting final completions.

It must be lovely to have people post really old pics of your boat, seeing them through the decades and their hire boat carrier.

It is. Garry's grandfather owned our boat for 15 years, which is fantastic. He tells us she was never in the hire fleet. One person has owned her three times on different ocasions.

It really is a huge bonus for us to know Garry and the others. We met at Wroxham earlier in the season had a great afternoon....

That afternoon in
Wroxham was
great for us too,
been onboard
again after 30
years, although I
did have a quick
look over her in
1998. I can trace
her history back
to 1957 and know
of 9 different
owners in that
time, presuming
there was one
owner from 1953-
1957. I dont think
that mast would
have survived all
these years if it
had been a
hireboat although
it did survive my
teenage years. Smile

These next couple of pictures are from when my grandad first owned her in 1966 I'm afraid my mam and dad took most of the early pictures and there's not many with manka fully in them.
