June 26, 2019, Wednesday: OCHS---Program: "Voyage of the Onward"

When:  Wednesday, June 26, 2019 at 6:30 p.m.

Where:  Ida Rupp Library, 310 Madison Street, Port Clinton

This is a video presentation and discussion by Bob Reynolds on the Matthews Boat Company's maiden voyage of their boat, "Onward".  Scott Matthews, of Bascom, Ohio, built the boat and sailed it on what has become known as the "Great Loop," a journey from the Great Lakes to the Great Lakes by way of the Mississippi, the Gulf, around the tip of Florida, up the Atlantic Coast, and through the Saint Lawrence Seaway.  But in 1906, it was accomplished by way of the Erie Canal.  That was the year he made that trip, the first person to ever try it, and with his family on board, including Bob Reynolds' mother who, at the time, was an infant!  Luckily for posterity, a photographer went along as a crewman and took many photos, which make up the fascinating visual part of Bob's presentation.  At the conclusion of the trip, Matthews decided to move his business to Port Clinton from Bascom, and it became the Matthews Boat Company.  Free presentation open to the public.
