Mid section includes cargo hatches, etched brass stanchions, and line for railings. Two mid sections may be added to the basic kit, and still be prototypical to some stretched boats.
After the St. Lawrence Seaway opened in 1959, many “canallers” were stretched to increase their length to add cargo capacity.
Please note, this kit contains only parts for mid section, and does not build into a complete boat on its own.
