Description:
This former McAllister Tug FELICIA use to work in Montréal Hbr. Now she is resting on the beach of St Joseph de la Rive, Québec, Canada, in front of the Musée maritime de Charlevoix, a nice museum open to people who want to know more about the wooden cargo schooners built in this village for service on the St Lawrence river.
The tug may not be related to the main museum's goal but the young public like very much to "touch" an exhibit, so a steel tug become a very attractive and interesting exhibit. And it give time for the parents to explore...

Bonjour Hubert

FELICIA was a Port of Montréal fixture for more than 70 years having been built at Sorel in 1923. She was retired in 1994. She and sister RIVAL initially were steam powered but were re-engined with diesel machinery in the 1950s.

Belle photo Hubert. Is that you on the bottom of the photo in the shadow? :-)

I've never been there. Will one day though. Coming from Repentigny, I mostly head to Rimouski to my folk's place.
