Known Restoration History:
In 1995 Malabar II received an entirely new hull, built on the original iron keel. John Alden advised the owner at the time, Exton Guckes, ” old Charlie Morse built Malabar for me, but he did pretty much as he pleased and you may find he made a few changes here and there.” Increased headroom, and slight alterations in the interior layout, were some of the changes.
Slight variation of the first Malabar, constructed with a single cabin, allowing more interior room, built from the same lines, but slightly fuller in the bow, with sheers slightly flattened, and different in accommodations, and ballast.
