Abstract:
In 1929, Frank Herbst and his son Julius were building motorboats in a small plant beside the Cape Fear River in Wilmington. Herbst built inboard powered skiffs and outboard powered hydroplanes, but wondered about combining the advantages of the two...\" the steady run of an outboard with the easy start of an inboard. Unable to find parts, Herbst used automobile and hand machined pieces to build the first successful inboard/outboard engine and drive train, patented on September 2, 1930.

Abstract:
W. John Craig of Wilmington is building a boat at nearby Masonboro Boat Yard; however, he is using some nontraditional boat building material. The fifty-foot boat will use chicken wire, sand, and cement. Jennewein discusses the project. The ferro-cement technique is not new. The first boat was built in 1848, and countless barges have been built of the material.
