About Us:  
 
 
 

Tim Searles, founder and President of The Rowing Repair Center, spent 28 years in his native Connecticut refining the craft of wood restoration, including period furniture, historic buildings, classic sailing and power craft, and rowing shells. Shortly after moving to Oak Ridge, TN, he joined the Oak Ridge Rowing Association and recognized the need for professional rowing shell repairs. In order to serve the needs of the rowing community, Tim launched The Rowing Repair Center in November 2000, just 3 miles from the Official USRowing Class A race course on Melton Lake in Oak Ridge, TN.

 
     
  Since its inception in 2000, The Rowing Repair Center has steadily grown to include a dedicated staff of experienced professionals. We provide precision repair and refinishing to your shell, whether it is an antique wooden shell in need of restoration, or a brand new eight that was severely damaged while trailering. Our craftsmen have the expertise to restore your shell to "new" and race-ready condition.  
     
  At present having restored over 1000 shells throughout the USA and Canada, The Rowing Repair Center continues its reputation for professional excellence and customer service from coast to coast.
