Shane Mason’s sailing Ella skiff is on its way
Shane Mason in Toronto is busily building the first sailing version of the Ella skiff to a tight deadline and has sent over these shots.
I can report that he particularly enjoyed seeing the shape of the boat come together when he stitched the panels together.
He’s decided to give his deck some camber, which explains why the frames are proud of the sheerline, and has made his mast from pine laminated with carbon fibre.
