Default *ShiPosium, 2013/QUEEN MARY, Long Beach*

Steamboating colleagues:
My confirmation packet arrived yesterday from Steamship Historical Society of America with details o the 2013 SSHSA 'ShiPosium' aboard the classic QUEEN MARY Hotel, Long Beach, California May 1 6th. The four day symposium crammed with tours, seminars, lectures, receptions for the 2nd annual event. Presenters in the QUEEN MARY's Royal Salon include:
*Friday
Marc Cruder, USCG
SS MILWAUKEE CLIPPER
MV COHO
SS DELTA KING
USCGC COMANCHE
RMS QUEEN MARY
Str. VIRGINIA
USS IOWA [Retired W.W. II battleship in Long Beach]
*Saturday
Ships as Historic Hotels
Historic Ships/Boats and Education
Visit to 'Alang' private home of Pete Knego to view his fine collection of ship/maritime memorabilia.
*Sunday
Annual SSHSA meeting
Presentation by maritime artist Ken Marshall on 'TITANIC: Unseen Interiors. Marshall has produced/illustrated fine books on TITANIC, LUSITANIA, German zeppelin HINDENBURG. Other venues also that day in the Long Beach area.

Many of us staying aboard the QUEEN MARY in classic outside cabins renowned on the ship during her long steaming career for CUNARD LINE. Tour of the retired battleship IOWA will be moving for me having known the ship well. SSHSA produces their quarterly 'PowerShips' replacing the former name 'Steamboat Bill.' SSHSA also deeply interested in inland rivers, Great Lakes steamers and other vessels. Should be a fascinating six days for me. It's about as 'pure steamboats' as you can get. Will report in time.
