During the years in which the Chilean port activity was developing transportation of goods were vital. Curanipe and Constitution had a leading role in the development of this activity, because it had shipyards for building small boats that transport the goods from the ships to the port, these ships were the faluchos, which played a key role before the establishment of mechanization of ports.

The construction of these ships was completely handmade, with oak maulino the same shipyard workers put out of the hills. Despite being a craft, it reached a high degree of specialization using exact template of each piece. The faluchos measured about 18 meters long and 8 meters high and 8 wide. Its construction delayed three months.

The release of water faluchos was an event where people gathered. The event lasted about two days. It took a team of four oxen pulled the steel cables which is tied to the boat. The faluchos rested on a wooden floor over idler pleated eucalyptus forty centimeters in diameter, which were advancing slowly. Upon reaching the shore, delayed one day introduce the sea. After the launching of the felucca as organized a big party with all the neighbors.
The faluchos was sailed by four people: a captain brought generally from Constitution and four crew members who worked in the shipyards. The crossing was always an adventure, would not know how the weather, tides and temporary if there always was attacking the journey that lasted about twelve days to Valparaíso, though the record was 36 hours with good wind. At Valparaiso harbor tug to meet the faluchos started dragging it to shore. Once on shore began bartering, changed among other things, chickens or objects.

From 1927 to 1952 he built 83 faluchos. Years later, were machined ports and no longer needed to build the feluccas. The shipyard work in Curanipe ended and the tradition of building the feluccas only remained in the memory of the people.

The faluchos deajaron to exist, however, the work and courage of those who built and sailed, of those pioneers who paved the creation of modern ports today allow us to realize its importance, its history and tradition. A legacy that is necessary to know in order to confomar our history and identity.
