Wooden Ship Kits

Great Lakes Freighter Kit


"Lakers" as they are commonly known carry bulk cargoes of materials such as limestone, iron ore, grain, coal or salt from the mines and fields to the industrial areas down the Great Lakes.
One of the best known was the Edmund Fitzgerald. She sank in a Lake Superior storm on NovemberĀ 10, 1975, with the loss of the entire crew of 29. When launched on JuneĀ 8, 1958, she was the largest ship on North America's Great Lakes and she remains the largest to have sunk there.
Modeled after a 350' bulk carrier, this semi-scale model of a Great Lakes Style Freighter makes a beautiful representation of the famous freighters.
