Reply Niiiiice! Goodonyas! People working hard and making a living! Reply 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. Reply 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. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
