Great Lakes Ore Boat
(Resin Kit)



Perfect for Ore Docks And Steel Mills!



This Great Lakes Ore Boat kit, made by Sylvan, features a reworked main deck and hatches spaced and sized for use with Walthers' Hulett Unloader (WA-933-2966) and Ore Dock (WA-933-3065) kits, each sold separately.

The finished model is typical of bulk freighters moving iron ore, grain, cement, coal and other cargoes on the Lakes from the turn of the 20th century to the 1980s.

It's patterned after St. Lawrence "canallers," smaller bulk carriers built to fit the locks on the St. Lawrence River prior to the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway in 1959.

Its small size makes it ideal for the average layout, as no compression is required to build an authentic model.

As-built, it measures 36" 91.4cm in length and 6" wide, representing a 258' 78.6m long freighter, but matching add-on center hull sections (SY-696-10502) are available separately to extend the overall length if a larger boat is desired.

The kit includes all parts, fittings, and accessories for a complete model, including etched brass stanchions and a fully detailed wheelhouse interior.

Main structural assembly is simplified by the use of one-piece castings.

  • Complete kit w/waterline hull
  • 36" x 6" (91.4cm x 15.2cm)
