|C.T.M.A.'s Canadian-flag diminutive cargo-liner MADELEINE as shown while upbound on the St.Lawrence River off Verchères on her last trip of the season in December 1981.
She carried passengers and cargo on weekly trips from Montréal to the Magdalen Islands and back for 15 years until replaced in 1987 by a larger vessel.
A good friend of mine, Capt. Valmont Tremblay, skippered her for most of this time and he still very much alive and kicking at the venerable age of 89.
