Steve Evans, whose group has recently restored the Montagu 'Swan' reports: 

'Got her sailing last week! We were presented with an original set of RN cotton canvas sails that had never been used! Some deceased Matelot had nicked them from the navy years ago. Beautifully presented and made. We will copy them and only use for special occasions. Just ordered 5 x 16 foot admiralty pattern oars as we have run out of time to make them.
Hope your plank mending/replacement is going well.' 

Looks like you can attend the celebration if you are in Bristol (England) on May 17th - see pics and flyer from Steve below.
