Ellen, tender to Nellie

Whoa, tender to Nellie, a 46’6” Herreshoff gaff cutter, at capacity but happy (above)
and following along contentedly through the Cape Cod Canal (below);
Hull built by WoodenBoat School students, then finished off very nicely by Redd’s Pond Boatworks,
Marblehead, Massachusetts. (T. Danielson photos)

Ellen, WBS hull off jig

Taking the Ellen (and Compass Harbor pram) hulls off the jigs is always a high point
at the end of each
Glued-Lapstrake Plywood Construction class at the WoodenBoat School.
Cat-tail, a sailing Ellen with a sprit rig, built by us in 1999;
well-traveled (and wonderfully maintained) by her owners since.
