Boat restoration finished

I do seem to get some interesting requests these days just over a month ago I was asked to restore a rowing boat, now having the workshop and yard space is handy sometimes, my answer was “Well if your in no rush I will fit it in”.  Today it was collected and the customer is over the moon, been a few years since I worked in the marina fitting out Thames barges and the like but really enjoyed doing it, I spent all the spare time I had at the workshop and you can see the result below.

It was completely stripped of all paint and varnish and has new seats, lots of parts have been replaced or made to get what we have here and then completely re-varnished and painted.
