Doug Gagnon notes (Oct. 2007): I remember the Nellie S. she was used on the northern part of the Gatineau river. Nellie S. was actually Nellie Spittle, a spinster who lived in Maniwaki, she died in the 1950's. My uncle owns the house where she died...

 

JP notes: Nellie S. still at work 1994.

John Pomeroy notes (Oct. 8, 2007): And so it starts. I am going to buy the Nellie S. (Hull #644). I have attached a bunch o’ pics of her. She is in pretty good shape but she’s been full of water for sometime which will likely mean a big engine
and marine gear overhaul…
