This 55 minute film explores the working and personal relationship between the world's most successful 18th century yacht builders, John and Nathanael Herreshoff. The brothers' ability to construct the fastest sail and steam powered boats in their day, was forged when John went blind at age 15 while building his first boat.
Simply a splendid little documentary! Highly recommended for curious sailors and history-minded folks alike. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the brothers' daring innovations and partnership. All the more to appreciate every time I see one of their graceful boats on the water!
