With most of the structural work inside now done Clair made a "formal" hand-over to Stan.  Great job Clair, but now comes the fun part!  This will be a "look alike" model of the CSL package freighter that Stan first served on.  Working from newspaper cuttings, a few web images and memory, Stan's going to detail this model to look like the real thing.  The ship was built by the Davie Shipbuilding and Repairing Co. at Lauzon, Quebec, in 1925, it was laid up at the end of 1957 and scrapped in 1972.  It was designed for the express service between Montreal and Hamilton and to pass through the pre-"Seaway" locking: LOA 250ft, beam 38ft and draft 23ft.  The ship was powered by a coal fired triple expansion steam engine of 1100 HP.
