To Be honest guy's I was not sure if I wanted to post this, as it is non R/C related. But after thinking about it I figured it was worth it. Story's like this are to far & few between . Yes Matt did what was the hardest to do, can you imagine a boy of his age & size running a Jonesport/Beals island 34' boat alone leaving his grandfather in the water & finding him again! I dont know how he was able to see over the dash, especially in rough seas! That is an amazing thing he did It gives me goosebumps thinking of it.

Tollytime: Me too
RICH404: No doubt
GILL RC : Ditto

Glad you enjoyed this article & took the time to respond bill
