About the organization
When Steamboating Magazine ceased publication in 2000 (it has since resumed publication) a void was left in hobby steamboating community. After surveying a random group of steamboaters, Charlie Roth, Tom Ray and others decided to form a new organization - North American Steam Boat Association - and publish a new magazine "The Smokestack". The purpose of the North American Steam Boat Association is to: * provide a correspondence link among hobby steamboaters; * form a steamboat organization similar to the Steam Boat Association of Great Britain; * insure continuation of a North American steamboat organization and magazine; * have a steamboating magazine "The Smokestack" for steamboaters and by steamboaters; * try for a North American meet for all of North America to attend. At this time we offer our members the following: * A bimonthly publication with: * updating of future activities and meets; * reports of recent activities and meets; * helpful do's and don'ts; * what people are building; * steamboat basic training; * questions and answers; * classified ads; * commercial ads; * autobiographies; * feature boat/engine; * new product review. * An annual membership list; * A biennial index. Go to the Application page to join now. All comments are welcome and I hope to have you aboard.
