The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

NSS annual steam meet to be held August 19-21

 

August 11, 2022



The Northwest Steam Society will hold their annual steam meet in Cathlamet August 19-21 at the Elochoman Slough Marina.

The boats will start arriving on Friday and most will leave Sunday afternoon.

The oldest boat in the fleet is Uno. She started out with a mast and oars on Lopez Island in 1894. Through the years she lost the mast and centerboard and picked up a steam engine and boiler.

The boats vary in length from 15 to 40 feet and there are a variety of engines.

The only scheduled event will be the boat parade, tentatively scheduled for Saturday morning around 9 a.m. to have favorable tide for the more shallow parts of the slough.

All with an interest in steam engines are invited to chat with boat owners and take photos.
