Product Description

Built in 1910 at Essex, Massachusetts by Arthur D. Story, the Elsie was designed with a semi-knockabout schooner rig, reflecting the influence of the safer but costlier knockabout schooners. She was outfitted with power after her 1921 race with the Canadian schooner Bluenose. Under Canadian ownership in 1935, her seams opened at the stem rabbet and she foundered in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

Model Shipways’ Elsie kit is easy to build with its machine carved solid hull, which needs only light shaping and sanding. Blocks and deadeyes are pre-finished hardwood; other fittings are expertly cast Britannia metal. Deck planking is basswood, and there's plenty of wood material for deck houses, furnishings, keel, stem, rudder and trim. Four dory nests and cordage complete the kit.

Length 21-1/2" • Height 16" • Scale 1/8" = 1 ft. (1:96)

Display base and brass pedestals are not included.
