Al Lorenzetti, who runs Babylon Boat Works on New York’s Long Island, launched its own reality show of sorts with daily online videos of projects in the shop.
Daily updates from Capt. Al and crew highlight the day's progress and struggles. Like other programs in the restoration genre, the Babylon Boat Works hopes the short clips are both entertaining and educational.
Babylon Boat Works came together within the last decade after Lorenzetti, with the help of many friends, completely restored his 1979 23-foot Mako fishing boat. The successful restoration drew enough attention to prompt other boat owners to flock in from all corners, wanting their own beloved boats restored and rebuilt as well.
