Synopsis: Inspired by my love of sailing and history, I sculpted my AHS Capstone project into an investigation based in these subjects. The resultant paper is a discussion of the relationships between engineering and design, and their influence on fabrication techniques in sailboat design. To this end, I discuss the designer Nathanael Herreshoff, the America’s Cup, and the influence of the US Navy.
