The Herreshoff Torpedo Boats: Innovation at the Beginning of the Modern US Navy
Sponsored by Points East Magazine and Cisco Brewers and Triple Eight Distillery

New team research reveals the influence of a strong Narragansett Bay connection and the Herreshoff brothers 20 year effort to dominate the torpedo boat business with innovative designs and a business plan to nullify the influence of the Navy bureaucracy and their specifications.
