Central RPC Repairs

The stern of this boat was knocked off on the Cook Straight Ferry earlier this year as the team made its way to the 2014 National Championships. The 300 mm stern piece was lost completely and meant that KIRS had to reform, mould and set a brand new stern.




This is a Sykes 1x owned by Central RPC. Now fixed by the best rowing boat repairer in NZ - KIRS!
