Reviews - What do customers think about Blueberry: A Boat of the Connecticut Shoreline?

A unique look at the experience of building a boat  Jan 28, 1998
Working with the unorthodox naval architect Philip Bolger, Mr Hume designed and then built a very cute little gaff-rigged cutter named "Blueberry." This book is Hume's account of the design and construction process. He also rambles on at some length about sailing Blueberry around the Connecticut shoreline.

Hume does a fairly good job of describing the design process give-and take, and incorporates actual correspondence between himself and Bolger. There are also good drawings which illustrate the evolving design. However, anyone looking for a treatise on boatbuilding a la Chapelle or Steward will be disappointed in the book. Also, I was annoyed by Hume's weenie liberal perspectives which were made evident during his narrative about crusing Blueberry.

All in all, it's worth a look. And the boat is a cute little thing.
