webfil Posted June 24, 2017 Report Share Posted June 24, 2017 Traverse Rimouski-Forestville's (wiki) cat-ferry was docked since June 21st due to motor problems. The small private service across the broad Saint Lawrence had already been stopped before the end of the 2016 due to mechanical problems. Government of Québec had provided its builder, Chantier naval Matane, over 150,000$ for the boat's maintenance. Wednesday this week, Transport Canada ordered the 20-year old craft to remain ashore when a passenger noticed the federal bureau of unusal odours and noises coming from under the aluminium vessel. The high-speed ferry is now back in operation since this morning, just in time for the high season. Two other ferries (NM L'Héritage I from Compagnie de navigation des Basques and NM F.-A. Gauthier from STQ) operate in the greater Rimouski surroundings.
