Brooklin Boatyard: The Frank Gehry sloop

from Bill Mayher, in Brooklin ME:
"Here is a CAD rendering of the 74' Germain Freres sloop being built for architect Frank Gehry at the Brooklin Boatyard this winter.  With 100 inches of snow down and counting, she has been a continuing source of entertainment for the cabin fever afflicted crowd. And Oh Yeah! Those little black shapes will have individual pieces of glass set in them...all 862 of them.  And those steering pedestals, they will be fabricated in titanium by Boeing's 3D printer. Needless to say, Frank has had a lot of input in "Foggy's" aesthetic.  She'll be launched in May. Operators are standing by to take your order." -BM
