Ellen

Ellen, a 17ft Gorran Haven Crabber was built in 1882 by Dick Pill for the Willmott Family. She has a beam of 6ft and a 2’6” draft and is reputed to be the fastest Gorran Haven Crabber ever built. Her lines and Spritsail Rig are specific to Gorran Haven. By 1900, she was being fished by the Billings brothers, Dick and Andrew, who moved her to Flushing as there were too many Crabbers in Gorran Haven! She’s now permanently based in Mousehole and sailed by Cornish Maritime Trust members.
