You are right Soconav did own her at this time.
Lanaud on Sep 25, 2005 00:44 (12 years ago)
Ok. She was the Gulf Gatineau at first.

Built Marine industries, Sorel, Qc in 1976. Think Soconav was the owner under J.C. Phillips

Thanks for your comments Lanaud. The Gilbert had a major refit 1984-1986 I think where they changed the bow and made her longer. The tanker in the background was the J.C Philips. It was quite the site watching the Gilbert with her bubbler system braks up the ice.

Lanaud on Sep 25, 2005 00:41 (12 years ago)
Nice shot Dean. I suppose they had two or maybe it was modified:

And that looks like a Branch Lines tanker in the background. Looks like the Léon, Arsène or Arthur Simard. Do you remember?
