  1. Lou,
    Great to have you back! Have missed your many insights and instruction in the art of boat building. Looking forward to your next series.

  2. Hey Hollywood, it was a real shocker to see you turn up in my e-mail this morning! When you disappeared we eventually went to checking the obituaries. Very glad to see that you are still out there! Hope all is well and look forward to more of your stuff.

  3. Awesome video. Great music and drone shots.

    Idea for new Total Boat Video Series: “How much of this boat building is going on worldwide that we don’t know about?” Narrated, of course, by Lou Sauzedde!

  4. Thought the New England winter had gotten you but I now see you were enjoying summer in Chile. Good to have you back. The new series should be very interesting.

  8. Great tour of the Chilean fishing boat yards! You did it again Lou. . . just watching we learn a lot. Can’t wait for the rest of the tour. God Bless!!

  9. What a terrific idea for a visit! Another great video, Lou. Desco in Florida was the last shipyard in the U.S. I I know of mass producing big wooden fishing boats. Thanks for coming back on line. Looking forward to learning more about your trip.

  10. Hey Mr Lou Glad to see you back.I talk to you on the phone about me building a small boat.I,am buying wood now and went spring comes I will start building.I need your E mail or address so I can send you pictures thanks August mamolito.

  11. Fantastic video. Heartwarming to see real shipwrights building boats in much the same way as in centuries past.
    Chile has been a leading fishery for hundreds of years, taking advantage of its close proximity to the Humboldt Currents. Family owned boats and small fleets dominated the industry. That was all changed by industrial scale overfishing by a handful of large corporations until the Chilean government stepped in with aggressive conservation programs. Based on the activity that Lou witnessed, it may be that the little guys are back in the game.
