From the Cape Cod Shipbuilding Company's brochure for the original L. Francis Herreshoff H-12.5: "Construction of the Herreshoff H-12.5 by Herreshoff Manufacturing Co. began October 1914, with the first deliveries made in the spring of 1915.  Officially, the class name was "Bull's Eye"and the sail insignia was a round Bull's Eye with an outer ring.  As the class increased, such nicknames as Doughdish, Buzzards Bay Boy's Boat, Narragansett Bat Class, Fishers Island Class and Bristol Class were used.  In accordance with the custom of the times, she was referred to by her water line length 12.5 footer.

With Cape Cod Shipbuilding Company's acquisition of the exclusive rights of the Herreshoff Manfuacturing Company design in 1947, construction of the wooden Bull's Eye continued in Warreham, Massachusetts. ... To ensure the design is original, Cape Cod Shipbuilding utilizes all the jigs and patterns from the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company to construct these boats."

In 1972 Cape Cod Shipbuilding began to work on a fiberglass version of the original Herreshoff H-12.5.  The fiberglass mold was made over the original wooden frames built and used by the Herreshoff Mfg. Co.  The lead keel is cast in the same original mold used by Herreshoff, and the hardware on the H-12.5 is almost entirly bronze, cast from the original Herreshoff patterns.The solid fiberglass hull that we build in our shop today is the result of more than 50 years of experience in the fiberglass sailboat business."
