My wood El Toro hulls are made in a female mold using 6mm okoume plywood for the bottom, sides
and transoms. The side air tanks and deck are made from 4mm okoume plywood. The seams are
filleted and glassed on the inside. The first boat weight 50 pounds with the dagger board trunk and thwart
installed, but without deck and deck framing. My customer is finishing her. His granson will be sailing
the boat at Lake Merritt, look for the natural wood El Toro sail #11931. Here is the pricing for
my wood El Toro hulls. I have it in 3 stages so the do-it-yourselfer can save money.

Stage 1:
Bare Hull (just out of the mold) It comes with the air tanks installed.
It includes the parts to complete the hull. Included are: Dagger board trunk and thwart parts.
Deck framing, mast step parts, deck, keel strip and rub rails. $900

Stage 2:
All of the above, but with the dagger board trunk and thwart installed. Also included in
4 oz. fiberglass cloth to cover the bottom and sides. $1100

Stage 3:
A complete hull with all parts installed. Bottom or bottom & sides are glassed, the rest is sealed
with epoxy. All finishing and painting to be done by the customer. $1500

Foil blanks:
Flat, edge glued sitka spruce or with spruce/mahagany combination. 5/8" thick.
Ready for the customer to hand fair and finish.

Dagger board $50
Rudder $40 (tiller handle $10)

Sitka spruce spars: Boom $125
Mast - I would recommend using a carbon fiber
mast to be competitive. If you insist on wood, I can build one.

El Toro For Sale
Ron Johnston-Rodriguez (425) 318-6090
Located in Duvall, Washington

This clasic wooden El Toro sailing dinghy has been in storage for over 25 years. A handsome little
boat with plywood hull finished with teak trim. Boom, mast, and daggerboards are wood and in good
condition. Comes with all rigging and the red El Toro Shovel sail (but no idea of it's number). May have been built from a kit. I purchased it a year ago with the intent of refinishing it, but other priorities have asserted themselves and I don't have the time or space to complete it . . . and I need a bigger boat. The boat comes with $200 worth of epoxy and fiberglass cloth to apply (unopened in orginal packaging).
