Construction of the67 designed hull from was achieved by cold moulding ply over King Billy and Celery Top frames. 10mm King Billy was then strip planked over the hull. The same method was used on the deck with Celery Top inlay placed between King Billy planks. Bottom the hull is constructed from 6mm ply with Dynel cloth cover. Eleanor is powered by a Mercruiser 1997 5.7L competition skier. Raw water cooled. Straight shaft, direct coupled to flywheel. Upholstery is jag red viynl done by the builder. Over the 5 years it took to complete the build a lot of skills were learnt and great satisfaction gained from the first ski behind Eleanor.
