   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.
