Finish Line Shell Repair
Conceived in 2012 and founded in 2013, Finish Line Rowing was founded on the idea of being something more than just boat repairs. Alex Del Sordo, Finish Line’s founder, believed that rowers needed a repair shop that was run by people still actively involved in the sport.
Finish Line Shell Repair offers full boat repair and refurbishing services.
Now operating in a 23,000 squarefoot building, Finish Line has the capacity of 100 boats at any given time.
Since 2016, Finish Line has averaged more than 330 repairs and refurbishments per year!
Pocock Racing Shells
Announced January 2021, Rowers Choice and Pocock Racing Shells are proud partners.
A superior boat design 110 years in the making, there is literally no other boat that should be considered first.
Pocock Racing Shells was founded in Seattle, Washington in 1911 and has been an integral part of nearly 100 years of American rowing. The roots of the company go back even further, starting in the 1800s with the Pocock family in their native England.

This is not your normal rowing challenge.
