Like the boatmen, who had met up with success dedicated to the marine traffic of passengers, a rosy horizon was foreseen, for there were other port people who felt that the pleasure boat business was to be divided between them, bringing a large economical profit to Portofino. The axe teachers and the “calafati” (specialized workers in waterproofing a ship) that work in the dockyard, dedicated themselves to repairing and building pleasure boats, much looked for in seamanship: There was a transformation, and a part of the activity went towards craftmanship. The wood teachers, besides repairing, started to build small boats, launches and “gozzi” (rowing boats): after the rowing boats, motor boats were built. It’s possible to name those who worked with wood: Gaetano Viacava called “Gheita Baciarin”, Giulietto Vignale, Giovanni Franzon and his son Roberto, Giacomo Gallino from Rapallo, G. B. Viacava called “Ba” and other boys… These characters were distinguished for their willingness and ability in artistic craftmanship. One person in particular was distinguished in the naval constructions not only for the type of boat, but also for the refined workmanship: he was Gaetano Viacava called “Gheita Baciarin” His “gozzi” have reached the maximum of prestige, and a boat owner was proud to own one: the activity was inherited by his son Giacomino that, with the same ability and silence, is carrying on his father’s craft.
