A friend of one of our staff had this 1970's Alden Ocean Rowing Shell at his lake house in NH. He asked if she could get a quick "fluff and buff".
Seeing as he was a friend of the boatyard family, we did one better!
The Alden got two new watertight bulkheads fore and aft, to add flotation and to give some strength to the upper deck. There was significant crazing in these locations from people sitting or pushing on the thin upper deck. The bulkheads worked wonders in stiffening the hull.
Areas of the floor were reinforced where the sliding seat had been chafing the bottom of the hull.
She was sanded, filled, faired and primed, and finally sprayed with several coats of Flag Blue AwlGrip on the hull, and Ocean Mist AwlGrip on the upper deck and the interior.
Original hardware was reinstalled and a new rub-rail was the finishing touch.
