With police in Boston searching on April 19 2013, for the bombing suspect, Mr Henneberry noticed some padding to protect the hull of his 24-foot boat that had been shrink-wrapped had fallen off.
Mr Henneberry went outside, lifted the wrap and found a bloody Dzhokhar Tsarnaev curled up inside.
He ran back into his home and called the emergency services.
Hailed as a hero for his actions, he was uncomfortable with the attention.
Three people were killed and hundreds injured in the atrocity at the US city's famous endurance race in 2013.
Tsarnaev was later sentenced to death.
