GOVERNOR OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA TO RE-COMMISSION PV MAYFLOWER AT ALL STEAMED UP FESTIVAL.
His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC, Governor of South Australia will
attend the All Steamed Up Festival at Mannum this Sunday to re-commission
the PW Mayflower, one of the oldest paddle wheelers in South Australia.
Mayor of the Mid Murray Council Dave Burgess said we are honoured to
have the Governor of South Australia attend this milestone event for
Mannum.
“To have living maritime history alive in our Council backyard is
testimony to the dedication of our many passionate volunteers who have
devoted endless hours to the preservation of the Mid Murray Council’s
heritage fleet and attractions on offer for our visitors to the Murray River,
Lakes & Coorong region.”
“Mannum is the birthplace of the first paddle steamer on the Murray
River, the Mary Ann by Captain William Randell in 1853 and let’s not
forget the town could have been the Detroit of Australia with one of the
first steam cars produced in Australia in 1897 with The Shearer Steam
Carriage by blacksmiths and entrepreneurs, David and John Shearer.”
“To have a Shearer Steam car replica project underway will showcase
Mannum’s talents once again and the All Steamed Up festival will keep
these traditions alive.”.
The Artist Blacksmith Association of SA (ABASA) will have 40 blacksmiths
registered to participate at the event from New South Wales, Victoria, Western
Australia and South Australia. Chris Carter, President ABASA believed this will
be the largest gathering of blacksmiths ever in South Australia.
“The highlight is that we have renowned international blacksmiths from
England, Terrence Clark and his daughter Rebecca Knott attending. They will be
leading a workshop of 20 blacksmiths in the creation of a Repousse sculpture
which will be donated to the Mannum Dock Museum.”
“Terrence and Rebecca are very accomplished blacksmiths and much sought after
to conduct workshops. They have been involved with the making of a war
memorial at Ypres in Belgium and Terrence has been a driving force behind this
project which has just been completed in time for Remembrance Day.”
“Terrence has been working on this project for 7 years and it has been
completed on time.”
ABASA was formed in 2009 with only 9 members and over the years has grown
to around 55 members. The group has assisted with various historical forges
around the State by maintaining a blacksmithing presence at these forges, and
also attending and demonstrating at country fairs and field days.
In conjunction with the workshop at Mannum where blacksmiths will learn the
art of the Repousse metalworking technique in which a malleable metal
is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create
a design in low relief. there will be 3 competitions for all participants. There
will be first, second and third prizes for each of the competitions which are 1)
fire poker, 2) bottle opener, 3) door pull. The design for each section will be
entirely up to the individual blacksmiths and will make a magnificent spectacle
for festival visitors to see.
Rebecca Knott said that, the piece I have designed to make at 'All
Steamed Up' with Terrence and the assigned crew was developed from
a class Terrence and I held in Canada at the beginning of the year,
using the same methods of mark and stamp making to create a large
piece of textural wall art.
“For the shape of this piece I was inspired by some aboriginal work, their
art lends itself to mark making in a beautiful way and the connection they
have to the world is too powerful to pass by, a respect for the cycle of life
that we should all live by”.
“The full size of the piece is to be 1.5 metres round. In the centre is the
sun and the moon, next there is a cycle of 4 panels to make up the sky,
a cycle of 8 to make up the land and then the last is a cycle of 12 to
make up the sea. Life at its core”.
“My aim of this project is to open people’s minds to the possibilities of
stamp making. Whether it is being able to make your own makers mark
or decorating work that you have been commissioned to make”.
Rob Bowring Chairman of the Mannum Dock Museum acknowledged
the endless hours devoted by volunteers for both the restoration of the
PW Mayflower and the presentation of the All Steamed Up event.
“Without our sponsors, Pam O’Donnell, Robert O’Callaghan, the South
Australian Tourism Commission through Events South Australia, the Mid
Murray Council, Australian Maritime Museums Council this project would
not have reached fruition. I also acknowledge the ongoing financial
donations totally over $200,000 to date received from Pam O’Donnell
and Robert O’Callaghan for both the purchase of the Mayflower and for
her restoration back to the 1913 era.”
“Pam and Robert’s passion to keep maritime heritage alive on the
Murray River is truly commendable and Pam’s commitment over many
years as a Board member and Deputy Chair has been outstanding.”
The All Steamed Up Festival is on this weekend 19/20 November and will
feature living history at its best with the re-commissioning of the PW
Mayflower by the Governor of South Australia, over 50 boats including the ‘PS
Oscar W, the PS Marion, Hebe, Amphibious, Lotus and the Cato, over 55 engine

Re: 'All steamed up', Mannum, PV Mayflower, Sa19-Su20.11.16

Steamed up Mannum was held over Sat.19-Sun.20.11.
A feature was the recommissioning of PV Mayflower, restored in only a couple of years.  Boats attending were:
* Museum vessels PS Marion (Mannum), PV Mayflower (Mannum) & PS Oscar W (Goolwa).
* Private paddleboats: PS James Maiden (which had steamed in moonlight to arrive from Cobdogla in time), PV Flender Himmel, PV Kingfisher, PV Eliza Ann, PV Merlin, PV Amphibious, PV Matilda, PV Hebe.
* MV Proud Mary (Murray Bridge, commercial).
* Assorted launches/cruisers, including one steam launch.

The no shows were PS Industry (cancelled weeks in advance, possibly shortage of crew after a busy spring season) and PS Cato (possibly still stuck at Meningie, or with damage from running aground there in vicious wind).
