    Since the beginning of the colony, shipwrecks have happenend. Some where big and are now touristic attractions like the Empress of Ireland shipwreck, but some others are mor subtil and never got the media attention. I will include in the selection all those boats that are waiting to be fully rotten and slowly dying from little or no use at all since years.

    Shipwrecks are becoming very rare, the "L'Acalmie" wooden boat is the only one than now be found in the St-Laurent river between Montreal and Tadoussac. When I was a kid, I remeber going on some nice rotting 120' steel boats at Louiseville. They are now dismantled, L'acalmie reigns now.

    L'Accalmie est la dernière goélette encore à l'eau au Canada. Elle a été construite à l'Ile-aux-coudres par le maître charpentier Paul Mailloux et a navigué de 1957 a 1974 sous le nom de M.P. Émilie. La goélette a ensuite servi de résidence/atelier au peintre Guy Paquet. C'est lui qui l'a rebaptisé l'Accalmie.
    Lentement, le bateau est abandonné et laissé à la merci de la nature.
    En 2007, elle est acheté par Clément Gauthier qui souhaite lui redonner vie. En 2009, contre toute attente, il réussit a la sortir de la boue où elle reposait depuis 30 ans pour la déplacer plus loin sur la plage. Le propriétaire souhaite maintenant lui redonner vie, mais sans aucune subvention, le projet semble difficile a faire avancer.
