Entire Family Builds Model Boats
BUILDING scale replicas of famous sailing vessels is the hobby and vocation of Eugene Leclerc, a former sailor, who lives at St. Jean Port Joli, Quebec. He was forced to turn his hobby into a vocation when his foot became badly mangled in an accident that prevented his return to work.
The market for Leclerc’s authentic models has expanded so that he has had to secure the aid of his family. Now, all the older members of the family specialize in constructing parts.
