Ebony Queen
by: Herb Malherb

Gerard,
My wife Ann and myself were very good friends of Ruth and Hank Delker.

We all belonged to Sewanhaka Power Squadron and Hank worked with me in New York Telephone.

We docked our boat alongside theirs in Hidden Harbor Marina in Copiague and then later at LaSalla Boat Yard also in Copiague.

We cruised together for a number of years and spent many fine hours on the Ebony, which was Ruth's baby.

We miss them both and both passed away after we moved to Florida.

I would be interested in how you acquired the Ebony and what you are doing with her now.

I'm sure if you had any questions I might be able to answer them since we heard many stories of the boats history.

If interested, as I am, you can contact me at hmalherb@yahoo.com and I will surely respond.

Good luck with the Ebony.

You have acquired a fine boat which was cared for meticulously.
