    The Elissa is 162 feet long with a molded depth of 16 feet
    By the time the Elissa (then known as Christophoros) began operating in the Mediterranean, her sailing rig had been completely removed and her mizzen mast restepped as her main mast
    Shipyard workers bring the ship ashore by using tallow and grease spread over logs, a technique that dates back almost 2,500 years
