Argonaut CAD Design
The original CAD designs are by Brent Hartwig who drew these up for us based on
photos of Argonaut Jr.
Imagine for a moment what Simon Lake would think if he knew that Brent produced these 3D renderings in the woods of Idaho and sent them to interested people around the world in one evening. No such tools existed for Simon Lake and would not exist until after man walked on the moon.
With a beam of 54 inches the submerged displacement volume, and thus the total dry boat weight.
Mass = 15980 pounds, which is just over 7 long tons
