Bill Higgins, June 7, 2011 (view all comments by Bill Higgins)
I have not read this book, but I knew the author for several years immediately prior to the period of its publication, so I offer a personal caveat. In my opinion the problem with this book is that I do not believe that Hub Miller ever actually built a laminated wood boat. He was a fan of them, and briefly owned a coventionally planked wood power boat, but to my knowledge he never was a boat builder. He was an architect by training, a talented artist (paint), and was a great sketch artist of some unusual power boats that reflected his own design concepts. However, to my knowledge the only boat he ever designed to completion was a 16 foot open launch; this was a very pretty little boat custom built for him in fiberglass.
His current web site is www.hubmilleronline.com, and no mention is made his supposed boat building days. I would therefore approach the advice this book offers with caution.
