Lawrence River Skiff
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.
