3D Computer Imaging a Herreshoff S-Boat

Captain Nat Herreshoff probably never imagined someone (like his grandson, Halsey Herreshoff) would be taking the measurements off of his molds to make 3D computer images of the boats lines. For certain he envisioned them being used to create boats to the millimeter of his scaled models, but the computer 3D imaging – never! Don’t misunderstand though, Capt. Nat was at the forefront of yachting’s technological movement at his time, developing the first light steam engine and creating the first fast steam torpedo boats for the US Navy.
