In our continuing effort to promote paddlewheel boats, the American Sternwheel Association is making available to our members and friends various articles concerning these boats, the inland waterways and boating in general.

If you have an article you would like to contribute, please submit it to:


A look at various types of systems for controlling the rudders of a sternwheel riverboat.
A look at the design and construction of a paddlewheel for a sternwheel riverboat.
A complete log of the Thumpers voyage from Pittsburgh, PA to (almost) St. Louis, MO. This is nice example of keeping a LOG and the type of things that can be expected on a long trip.
One persons experience of finding, buying and transporting a paddlewheel boat.
An up-to-date listing of all marine channels and their assignment.
A discussion of the pro's and con's of ownership.
A discussion of the primary aspects of plumbing a paddlewheel boat.
