Vital Spark

This article is about the fictional ship; for the TV series of the same name see The Vital Spark

Fascination with the puffers still continues.

The Vital Spark is a fictional Clyde puffer, created by Scottish writer Neil Munro. As its captain, the redoubtable Para Handy, often says: "the smertest boat in the coastin' tred".

Puffers seem to have been regarded fondly even before Munro began publishing his short stories
