Mr. TARTE.

The boat now in use is a very strong one. I went all around the gulf in it, but that was before the upper decks were added. She draws 12 feet of water. If the captain is a safe man, he will not take the risk of running during a storm, because the boat could not stand a storm, raised as she has been.

Mr. TARTE.

I would ask the right hon. gentleman to look carefully into this matter. I know the boat very well. The department got it when I was minister. An upper deck has been added to it, which causes it to roll very much in a heavy sea. I think, if the hon. minister will look carefully into the case, he will find it advantageous to change this boat for another one soon. I have been on board it many times, and while I would not like to say anything that would injure the line, because I am very favourable to it, I think that the boat has been raised by two decks, and it would be safer to change it for another. I do not want to throw any cold water on the line-very far from it. But I do not think the boat would be able to stand a heavy storm.
