Haines Boatyard, nestled on the foreshore at Itchenor, is well known for its highly skilled wooden keelboat and GRP dinghy repair and boatyard services. Recently the company has been undertaking some more unusual work in renovating and maintaining wooden and GRP rowing boats.

The full range of skills and experience of the in-house shipwrights have been engaged in the renovation of a Solent Galley. Originally built for racing in Portsmouth Harbour and its environs, the Solent Galley is a 30ft long, clinker-built, fixed seat rowing boat with 4 oars and a cox. They are light, slim and fast and have some notable achievements to their names including holding the record for the circumnavigation of the Isle of Wight.
