What a magnificent boat, beautifully maintained. Just read this thread with interest having spent a few hours admiring her whilst moored overnight next to her at Womack last week.

Thanks for the pictures Garry, it was rather busy in Horning when we passed you as I recall. You looked very content sitting there watching the world go by.

We hid Malanka at LBBY for the duration of the 3RR. Managed to get ourselves off to the Dog later only to see the last boat pass us at the boatyard at 01:20 or so.
Malanka was out again this last week and she will be out again next saturday morning for a southern cruise.
We had a two up with Antigua and our Romanian friends, we had a blast and enjoyed every minute as we always do when with Malanka.

Lovely to see so much continuous history of such a lovely boat. You are very lucky!
We had a tantalisingly close brush with Perrapin's past (1968 Commander, and Broom's last ever wooden boat) earlier this year. Awaiting our turn into Romney lock on the Thames, we were hailed by a woman from the stern of a vessel leaving the lock, "We holidayed on Perrapin in the summer of 1969 . . . . "
Madam, if you happen to spot this post, we'd be delighted to show you aboard, for old times sake!

Best Wishes - Peter

You are very brave taking an old boat like that through locks. Smile

One of these days we plan to take her to Bristol and Avonmouth by way of the Kennet and Avon Canal! If I've done my homework correctly I believe she will fit under any bridge and the 12'6" locks will accomodate her with a bit to spare! Should take a few weeks  Smile   . . one of these days.

What a beautiful boat. Was she originally named after Manka the wild goose in BB's (D. Watkins-Pitchford)"Manka the Sky Gypsy"?

Cheers

That's a very good point I will ask Garryn..His grandfather owned her at that time.

We like Malanka now which actually is a Ukranian new year celebration.

I was always led to believe  the name was taken from letters of the original owners names. Afraid I don't know the original owners name but she was owned by Gerard Deacon from 1957 until 1965 when she was owned by Donald Wright and then my Grandad Richard Cooper from 1966 until 1981.
