Canadian List of Shipping 1970: Steel tug J. V. Perrin [C.310645] registered at Montreal. Built at Owen Sound in 1958. 34'; 10 g.t. Transport Canada List 2002: Built by Russel-Hipwell Engine Co., Owen Sound, Ont. Transport Canada List 2003: Owned by Le Groupe Ocean Inc., Québec City.

Yves Cloutier notes: As you can see in this picture, Marcel Boisvert is looking at the mountain, I am taking the picture, Fernand Francoeur, is operating the JV Perrin and Gaston Boisvert is taking us into position for the picture showing Fernand that our tug (RJ Beaumont) is the fastest! Gee, what a job. All the guys I worked with at the time passed away in the last few years, at the time I was 35 to 40 years younger.
