TROIS RIVIERES, LOUISEVILLE, QUEBEC

The shooting of Joe and the gang go swimming in a car

Following the diamond heist, Patsy shoots Joe in the eye and the gang go swimming in a car.

This was filmed between Louiseville and the St Lawrence River and the Lac-Saint-Pierre.

In Louiseville, QC, there was a significant collection of old tugs, dredges and barges waiting to be scrapped for years.

Leading the line up of old tugs was Capt. T.W.Morrison, followed by Jean Simard and Glenvalley

Capt. T.W.Morrison dated from 1907 and the yard of Pusey and Jones in Wilmington, DE where it was built for the US Army's Quartermaster Dept. In 1923 National Dredge+Dock Co of Quebec bought the tug and in 1939 it went to Marine Industries Ltd of Sorel. They converted it to diesel in 1957 with two V-12 GMs, totaling 590 bhp. Richelieu Dredging acquired the tug in 1972 and in 1976 it was sold to Paul-Émile Caron of Louiseville for scrap. During its entire career the tug maintained its original US military name. However it was not until 1996 that scrapping actually took place. By then the ravages of time had taken their toll.
