SNAME Executive Director Phil Kimball was pleased to represent the Society at the Classic Yacht Symposium held at the Herreshoff Marine Museum in Bristol, RI. Many SNAME members and a large number of students from Webb Institute were among the 135 attendees at the April 9-11 event. Halsey C. Herreshoff, President of the Herreshoff Marine Museum remarked on the event’s success: “We are pleased to have been able to join with SNAME to present our most successful symposium ever. The event appealed to professionals, amateurs, and enthusiasts alike.” Phil Kimball was a welcoming speaker, managed the SNAME booth on Saturday, and moderated the Symposium afternoon technical session. Dr. Roger Compton, past president of the Society, and Dean of Webb Institute, moderated the Saturday morning technical session. Seventeen technical papers were accepted by the Symposium. Friday, April 9, featured a tour of boat restoration shops of nearby Mystic. Saturday’s presentations covered restoration efforts and techniques past and present. Presentations continued on Sunday prior to President Herreshoff welcoming all guests into the Nathanael Greene Herreshoff model room for tours and information sessions. Many took advantage of the opportunity to review Murmur, a recently built H-15 reproduction on which a paper was presented. Other highlights included SNAME Member Roger Marshall’s remarks on the development of yacht design through the ages and a special presentation to Elizabeth Meyer, restorer of the 1934 J-Class yacht Endeavor.
