Here are some photos courtesy of Charlie who went and visited Malanka for us. No weeping please we did that already.

Yup I agree. We have a similar photo but the planking being replaced went round the stern to the lower starboard side planking too.

None of it was wet rot though it was all inside out stuff, probably due to the years of cool damp provided by the leaky and rotting ( wet rot) decks above. The planking being replaced is all directly below the areas where the decks were worst last winter.

We should have some T shirts made. New Transoms Rule or something.....

I've got some old fence panels, if they're any use to you?  Evil Grin .

Sorry, couldn't help myself. Seriously, what would we do without you dedicated woodies, and your bottomless pockets and enthusiasm? It's bad enough with "plastic" but when you have to practically rebuild the boat from scratch every so often . . .

Keep up the good work.

Regards, Ray.

It's the 21st century . . . so where's my nuclear-powered flying car, then?

Here is a photo of Malanka's bottom or lack of.  Have to say it was a bit disturbing to see so much of the old girl missing or exposed.  

Look's like I could start my own little business visiting the sick and elderly.... boats that is!

That's the one that made me weep....

Barry my friend what size T shirt do you require?????

Ray....once this is done she should be fine for a goodly long while.
The starboard side was always the worst one for degeneration due to where and how she used to be moored. Being in the shed with new sides and decks she should be much better off than before. My wallet and Helena's and Christians university fund certainly hope so.

I really can't wait to see her all painted up polished and varnished to perfection, better bring your sunnies or you will be dazzled.....

Remember the holiday tale and the guy hitting the starboard stern quarter , just how lucky were we then???
