I guess the new basin is somewhere around where this photo was taken in 1950. You may recolonize the old thatched ferry boathouse in the background.

The basin I am referring to is the one next to the swimming pool were NYA is now. When it was first done there was a outside swimming pool next to it.

My Grandad sold Manka in October 1981 and that was the last I saw or heard of her until one day in about 1996 when I was at work in Grimsby in my job as a plumber. I was getting some bits out of my van when a man walked by with his dog. He stopped and asked me if I could look at a leaking tank in his false roof. I arranged to have a look when I had finished the job I was on.
When I looked we decided it needed a new tank and arranged to do it a few days later
While I was doing the job the man told me he would now be a lot happier to leave the house when he was away on his boat. I asked him were his boat was and he told me it was in Norfolk. I told him that my Grandad used to have a boat on the Broads.
A bit later on he told me he had made me a cup of tea and to come downstairs to drink it.
While I was drinking my tea he passed me a photograph saying this was his boat. To my amazement it was my Grandads boat now called Malanka. Where he lived was only a stones throw from were my Grandad lived. These were the third owners since my Grandad sold her and they owned her for about 15 years.
He very kindly let me keep the photo.

It's even better than that Griff, we met Garry and family in Wroxham a while back and had a great afternoon in the sun talking about something we both love. Seeing the old pictures is just pure joy for me and knowing now how few owners she has had explains how she has arrived in 2011 in the condition she is. Garry is of course an honorary Malankan now too, he even has the cap to prove it.
We hope to meet up with him again sometime too, he has so many memories its good just to sit and listen to him..

It was great for me last year when Martin and Fiona bought Malanka and started talking and posting  pictures about her on here.
It was even better when I met them in May and then to become a Honary Malankan with that much sought after cap. Cheers

Garry
