For those members who saw the pictures of Malanka on the Richardsons Facebook page. A short update is that the wood for her restoration of the starboard side and bottom has now arrived and work will now start replacing the missing bits.
Easter cruise May still happen, good luck to Phil Toby and the boys.......
Doug, she is being replanked with Larch. Her original planking was mahogany over an oak frame. She had new decks last year, the original planks were replaced in some areas quite a while ago so we replaced the lot ( yes all of them) with rediculously expensive marine ply boards. What can't be seen on the photo is some of the bottom is also being replaced. A quick update is that the guys have fitted the new starboard chine and are starting to put in the new planks. The wood looks super in the photos we were sent.
