After the meal the speaker that could not make the Winter Rendezvous this year due to the snow storm is scheduled to speak.

Join Scott Matthews’ grandson, Bob Reynolds, as he presents a recreation of his grandfather's 9000-mile trip in Onward. This state-of-the-art vessel was the first recreational yacht to navigate the Great Loop. 

Ever the inventor, Scott Matthews designed several devices to make power boats easier to operate. Among them was a leverage system that allowed a single person to operate a clutch for a reverse gear, as well as the throttle and spark. The system was installed on his own 74-foot boat, Onward, launched in 1905.

Onward also had such modern amenities as an “electric light plant” with storage batteries and a steam heating system (pipes passed through the coal-fired galley stove and into radiators in each compartment).

See you there!
