I do not remember having seen a sectional canoe built to pack up and carry away in a very handy and portable state, and I think the accompanying designs will appeal to many readers as just the thing for the next holidays.  If a train journey has to be accomplished at first to get to the water, a canoe of ten or twelve feet long becomes somewhat of a trouble and is liable to get damaged en route as well, but when the twelve-footer can be made to take to pieces and pack up into one parcel of, say, five feet by two feet six, then the advantage of this type of craft becomes apparent.
