Description:
This is an example of a type of vessel which was very common on the St.Lawrence River in the first half of the 20th century up to the 1960s namely the "goélette". At first, they were wooden sailing vessels but between the world wars, many became powered and they were used to carry cargo to towns along the river banks such as pulpwood (called "pitoune" in Québec parlance). They were family-built and owned and this example NOTRE DAME DES MERS was one of the last active units of her type. Built at l'Isle-aux-Coudres in 1956, she was 91 feet long and measured 112 tons GRT.

Salut Hubert.

J'étais un passager corporatif sur le Lawrencecliffe Hall en route de St.Lambert vers Sept-Îles, ma première expérience du genre sur un navire marchand.

Bonjour Marc. Très belle photo....je ne savais pas que tu avais navigué sur le LAWRENCECLIFFE HALL....tu as été longtemps à bord?

Bonjour....Le NOTRE DAME DES MERS, GEORGES HÉBERT, NORD DE L'ILE et L'ÉTOILE DE L'ILE ont été vendu en juin 1978 pour des intérets de l'amérique du sud afin de naviguer dans les antilles. La MONICA L venait d'arreter de naviguer et fut remplacé par le ISABEL no 1.

The other two goélettes (river schooners) which were still in commercial service at that time were the NORD DE L'ÎLE and the GEORGES HÉBERT which were retired and sold foreign at the end of 1977.

In 1978, I was working in a hospital and the chief doc on the departement had bought one, the St-Jean I think, not sure of the name. He threw us quite a party on it at La Ronde...

The Cap-Chat, Yvan C and others whose names I forget (I should check my dad's discharge books), are a few of the ones my dad started on

I did not think there was any left in 1977, they werealso known as a "Panouche" why?, I don't know, my cousin who was a Captain for Misener still calls them that, they could sail close to the shore and use the prevailing eddies to help the Goelettes or river schooners, overcome the strong current of the St. Lawrence.
