The Steamboat Association of Great Britain
the SBA’s quarterly journal,
The current edition is number 188, shown here.
Funnel 188 will shortly be hitting members’ doormats. It is a 70-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
SBA Social Weekend 2021 (Richard Havard)
Kew Bridge museum, and early days in the SBA (Ian Rutter)
Committee meeting via Zoom (Mark Rudall)
Rethinking how we use fuels (Simon Redford & Mark Rudall)
Boiler Retubing (John Jewsbury & Nigel Thomson)
The elusive but useful dot punch (Dick Plumb)
Mass produced steamboats (Roger Davies)
The Saga of a Soggy Bottom (John Dines)
Windermere Antiques Roadshow (Roger Heise)
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.
