This is from "Rowing Services."
It ocurred to me that this kind of restoration might well have aspects that would benefit from cross pollination. So far as I am aware rhere is also no dedicated rowing site geared towards wooden craft, so this worthy cause is something of an orphan that we could invite on board.4457.Advice on restoring a timber 8
We may be coming into ownership of an old weathered timber 8+. As we are not the most skilled repairmen would anyone have any advice on how to restore her to her former glory.
She has bbeen stored out in the elements uncovered for at least 2 years (maybe longer).
What should we look for/what are the key elements on restoring a timber boat (apart from age and weathering, there is no apparent damage)
Any advice will be considered.

Anyone have any strong feelings?
I will find out if this is a Clinker or a shell, and other detail such as manufacturer etc.
I expect it probably looks like one of these...
