Can not believe I have come across this vessel blimey I was aboard in the early 60's when she was arrested they posted the arrest warrant to her bridge door. We were off Three Rivers Quebec & stayed there at anchor in the St Lawrence for possibly three to four weeks. My introduction to pizza too. What a seriously funny trip with a amusingly odd crew.
Good God some memories went on to Canadian Pacific Beaver boats. Ah memories of 40+ years ago thank you.
