Ellie’s hull is built in glued-lapstrake construction with meranti plywood over permanent bulkheads and stringers. Her spars are Douglas Fir. Both masts are built hollow using the bird’s mouth method. Her seats provide permanent flotation and are decked with oiled mahogany. She sports a gunter-rigged main, roller furled jib and sprit-boomed mizzen, all rigged for easy access from the cockpit. Her self-draining anchor well and large watertight storage locker under the foredeck make her an ideal camp cruiser or daysailer.
