ELISSA is a three-masted, iron-hulled sailing barque built in 1877 in Aberdeen, Scotland by Alexander Hall & Company. Under various names, rigs and owners she had a 90 year carreer carrying cargo. She was purchased by the Galveston Historical Foundation 1975. She was extensively refurbished through 1982. Since then, she has been dockside in Galveston when she is not sailing.
Though Hurrican Ike did serious damage to the dockside museum buildings and shops, except for blown out sails ELISSA apperas to have weathered the storm without damage.
From the Houston Chronicle:
Several yards away the tall ship Elissa appeared to have weathered the storm well. Aside from tattered sails that been unfurled in the winds, there was little damage. A flock of seagulls rested on her mooring ropes and the pier where she was docked.
