 706   St. Lawrence River Skiff Used   on   the   St.   Lawrence   River   since   the   mid-1800's,   the   St.   Lawrence   River   Skiff   was the   mode   of   travel   for   fishing   and   sightseeing   along   the   river.  The   modern   day   version is   an   open   craft   which   is   pointed   at   both   ends,   easy   to   row,   and   fast   under   oars   or   sail.     Until   the   advent   of   the   outboard   motors   the   skiff   was   the   boat   of   choice   for   fishing   on the St. Lawrence River. The   boat   could   be   constructed   with   open   ribs   or   with   ceiling   boards   to   cover   the   ribs completely.       The   kit   provides   instructions   on   both   looks.     As   for   color,   that   is   left   up   to the   builder,   as   the   real   boats   almost   became   works   of   art   with   different   woods,   stains, and   inlaid   woodwork   in   the   seats.         The   model   is   made   of   bass   wood   and   the   kit includes   a   movable   fish   box,   faux   leather   bindings   on   the   oars,   and   an   easily   assembled stand. Length:   19-1/8"     Beam:  3-3/16"      Scale:  1/12
