Expert repairs and refurbishments done with the same meticulous attention to detail as when the boat was first built
In the very rare event of major damage, repairs are done in our workshop or by our approved repairers if outside the UK. We will quote for the work only after physical inspection but may be able togive preliminary estimates from photographs. We are well regarded bythe major rowing insurance companies.
It should be noted that whilst we do our utmost to match repair veneer patterns as closely as possible, it is impossible to replicated the natural ageing process of the wood, which will cause a colour mismatch. This will soften overtime and we do take care to make the repair as stylish as possible.
