Maple Leaf - 33"L x 14"HT x 7 1/2"W
"The Maple Leaf was built in Canada in 1851 and was employed in various facets until August, 1862 when she was sold to the U.S. Army Quartermaster Department for use as an Army transport. I built it during the winter when my wife's windshield wipers gave out. I found them in the trash. And I was eating pineapple chunks around Christmas time. I liked the '100% Hawaiian' on the can."
