Tips from a Shipwright: Another Chilean Boatyard Visit

Louis Sauzedde’s famous stature as a boatbuilding video star extends far beyond New England and the United States. Chileans in the town of Lota flocked to meet Louis when he visited their local shipyard on the shore during his visit there last year. The press and locals were there to interview the superstar and get some insight into his social media prowess. Tourism and boatbuilding are a rare combination but you can count on Louis to bring that element of stardom to his visits to these busy yards that are such a vital part of the Chilean culture.  Lou’s second boatyard visit found him in a more industrial boatyard that was building and repairing steel boats as well as some wooden ones. Join Lou as he delights in more inspiration and interrogation on the beautiful coast of Chile.
