Rowing Boat Repair

We can carry out work on any type of rowing/racing shell. Our composite engineers have a wide range of experience in the boat building industry allowing us to make strong, reliable and high quality repairs. We have carried out work for all of the major UK rowing insurers. 



We offer an automotive quality spray service and take the upmost care in the preparation of your boat and will include the repair of any small holes or dents. We use the best quality polyurethane marine paints, which are applied in a custom built professional spray booth. The boat will then undergo a fine polish and buffing to give a high quality gloss finish. 


At Chester Composites we specialise in the repair of rowing racing boats. We utilise the most up to date techniques and methods to ensure the original weight and stiffness is retained. Where possible we will use the same materials as in the boats original construction. We are able to repair a vast range of damage please get in contact for a quote.  We also offer our carbon fibre rib replacement service for old wooden or broken ribs check out the link below for more details.
