Me Faas Strik, the Dutch owner of the modern steam ship SS George Stephenson, is keenly trying to find a ‘Crabtree Steam Engine Nameplate’.
The SS George Stephenson was in British waters twice during 2017; in June on the Medway, for the 350th anniversary of the Battle of Chatham, when we had 200 Classic ships, tall ships and yachts, and; in September, for the Great Yarmouth Maritime Festival.
It is proposed that the SS George Stephenson will be in Southampton for the 2018 Boat Show. If any readers can help it would be greatly appreciated.
