Trophy oar restoration requires an experienced hand. Inherited presentation oars and antique blades may have passed down through generations and time or neglect may have taken their toll. Not only can we carefully restore the structure of the oar itself, but we can arrange for paint and design restoration to be carried out so that distinguishing features, accolades, and heritage can be maintained.
We use only the best quality materials for both our manufacturing processes and our repairs. From the wood down to the paint and varnishes we use. Our reputation has been derived from our precision workmanship and careful attention to detail and you should expect nothing less when you come to us for repairs and restorative services.
