Although the military stopped issuing sea chests in the late 1950’s, local woodworker J. Paul Lanza carries out the nautical tradition from his workshop in Simsbury, CT. Lanza, 78, built more than 300 homes on Cape Cod during his career, including the John F. Kennedy Memorial in Hyannis. Producer Dave Fraser visits him and shares his story.
