Built By L.E. Fry probably sometime before 1910, Ellie is a beautiful example of the Skiff-Putt. She is constructed exactly as a smooth-lap St. Lawrence Skiff, with cedar planking fastened over oak ribs with copper rivets. Plank laps are clinch-nailed. A v-transom with some tumblehome is substituted for the double-ended form of the skiff, a marine engine installed, and a fine open motor launch is achieved. Ellie has mahogany decks, coaming, and transom, as well as seats and a mahogany engine compartment. The ceiling is red cedar. The boat is operated from the middle seat next to the engine compartment, where there is a side-steering wheel. Ellie is currently powered by a Gray Four-22, a four-cylinder engine from the late 1930s. Originally, she would most likely have had a one or two-cylinder two-stroke engine from one of any number of manufacturers. Ellie is in beautiful shape and is a wonderful example of the superb craftsmanship that came from L.E. Fry's shop. She has been deaccessioned from the Museum's collection and all proceeds will benefit their programs.
