August 26, 2014
Here's a video showing cool arial footage from a drone by Tips from a Shipwright -- this one featuring the Herreshoff Torpedo Boat STILETTO.
Here's the info that Fish Hawk Films provides on STILETTO:
"Fish Hawk Films was lucky enough to get some footage of the legendary STILETTO (1978) on Narragansett Bay. At 48' long and with a beam less than 7' wide, Stiletto is capable of running at up to 25 knots. This classic wooden rocket is based on the proportions of early US Navy torpedo boats. In 2011, Herreshoff Designs modified Stiletto for cruising on the East Coast and now she can usually be seen on the ICW between Bristol, Rhode Island and the west coast of Florida. The 250 BHP Yanmar engine burns only 4 gal/hr at cruising speed so long distance cruising is very economical."
