The Steamboat Association of Great Britain
the SBA’s quarterly journal,
The current edition is number 189, shown here.
Funnel 189 will shortly be hitting members’ doormats. It is a 90-odd page edition full of the usual mix of information, updates on this and that and some useful how-to-do-it material too along with historical pieces.
As ever, the SBA journal is assembled with a view to providing something of interest to steamboat enthusiasts of long experience or of none at all. Here are just a few of this month's articles
Windermere Jetty report (Dot Bullough)
Information for latecomers to the 50th event (Helen Steeple)
New members start here! (Roger Calvert)
Mutterings of a Coarse Steamboater (Richard Parker)
Straight line linkages (Dave Thorpe)
Kiwi Dancing (John Olson)
21st Century Steam (Roger Heise)
Rebuilding Radnor (Sam Lees)
A smart and effective folding backrest (Andy Hopper)
Each edition aims to set a few useful ‘hares running’ on different topics to attract readers’ opinions in new articles or letters because ‘Funnel’ exists to give everyone a voice.
