The Greek merchant ship Mount Pindus was torpedoed off Cap des Rosiers in September 1942. It lies at a depth of about 215 metres, 30 nautical miles off the coast.

As teenagers, Érik Phaneuf and Samuel Côté were both fascinated with secrets hidden underwater. Phaneuf became an underwater archaeologist; Côté became a shipwreck researcher and eventually an author and TV producer, piloting the Historia series Chasseurs d’épaves (Wreck Chasers).
