BUFFALO, NY (WKBW-TV) - Gary Jensen started with his hobby a decade ago. Looking at his recreation of the Canadiana, it's obvious he has this boat making thing down. He says "it's like a chess game-you have to start on the lower deck and you have to plan ahead"
His new model is on display at the Buffalo Harbor Museum along with a number of his other creations. The Canadiana took him 1800 hours over a year and a half. He built it from scratch.
The Buffalo Harbor Museum celebrates the history of the Great Lakes.
