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.

That contraption on the bow was used for lifting the mudweight but can never recall it been used.
  I was a good boy with my lifejacket on and I did love my baseball boots.

The newer contraption she now carries is used by me all the time. It's great, makes pulling the plug very easy..

Looking at these photos does bring back some great memories for me Martin.
Manka's moorings were not at Sutton tonyr.
Here,s a couple more there in 1972 and 1973.

There were 3 more wooden brooms boats in the boatyard around this time, Princess Zena, Magnolia and Zephyr which was owned by my Grandads business partner
Here's Zephyr
