Why Become a Member - Written by Member & Trustee Les Green
Ask anyone fortunate enough to own a boat and they will tell you that it is an expensive business. Likewise you will get a similar answer if you put the same question to those involved in all things “steam”, be it railway locomotives or traction engines but put the two interests together and what do you have, yes the “Danny”.
A coal fired boiler with two steam driven engines and all contained in a 113 year old steel hull, will require a great deal of tender love and care. Added to these costs will be all the requirements of maintaining a modern safety programme and complying with maritime law when carrying passengers.
The total cost to date to save the “Danny” with all grants and valuable volunteer time combined will be in the order of £5million and to ensure that she is still floating for future generations to enjoy will require the continual combined effort of its supporters, volunteers and staff
