The Boat

About the Boat: Ellen Louise




When you think about boats you might think of a million dollar yacht with crew cabins and all the luxuries that come with it. Or you might think of a pirate ship. Who knows. Our boat is neither. It is a teak hulled 1964 Cheoy Lee Robb 35'. It was designed and built in Hong Kong as a blue water cruiser. It has spruce spars (mast/ boom) and enough varnish to employee a small army.
