Is the website inventory current? 
Inventory is current on our website! 
We do have a section of recently sold inventory, but those items  are clearly labeled SOLD in the heading and the website says "this item is currently out of stock".  We keep these on the website to show folks values of similar boats.  

How is SHIPPING handled? 
Please read the "SHIPPING"  website tab BEFORE  requesting a quote (top of home page).  We have a whole page dedicated to explaining the shipping process.  

Do you give appraisal values for other Shells?
Sorry, but we can NO longer offer this service.  The best way to figure out market value from us is to click on "SORT inventory" link on our homepage and at the bottom you will see a "recently sold" section.  This will show you recently sold boats, and their selling price. 

Do you sell parts for rowing shells?
Unfortunately, we no longer sell parts (like seats, riggers, etc) for classic shells.  We recommend an ebay search.  

Where is Rowable Classics Located and hours of operation? 
Our 2 primary inventory locations are Thomaston, Maine and Pittsboro, North Carolina. However, we also have boats in other locations across the United States. Each product description tells where the inventory is located.  Inventory is available to be seen in person by appointment only, as we don't have regular "store hours".  Calls and emails are often returned during evening and weekend hours due to other full time employment.  

 Can I sell my rowing shell on ? 

YES!  In an effort to continue Darryl’s life mission to connect classic wooden rowing boats to new “stewards”, we are now offering a FEE BASED consignment services via our website for Classic wood rowing shells.  Please see the CONSIGNMENT tab at the top of this website for more information.

Does Rowable Classic buy rowing shells or oars? 

Currently, we are not buying more inventory.  

Do Oars come with a boat purchase?

Oars are sold separately (unless specifically noted in the add).  


What is the Inventory condition? 

All merchandise is used, although some inventory has never been in use, or some has been fully restored.  Pricing reflects current condition of product as some items may need work.  We fully disclose any known issues.  You are always welcome to go to our inventory locations to see the products before purchase.  Everything is sold "as-is". There is no expressed or implied warranty. 

Do you do repair work?
We can recommend excellent craftsmen located in Maine and North Carolina.  We are NOT doing repairs at this time.  

Is pricing negotiable? 
We have our inventory very fairly priced.  Occasionally we do have "sales", but our pricing is set!  Please no Haggling. 

Do you ship overseas?  
We are NOT shipping overseas at this time, only in the continental USA 48 states.  

Is ROWABLE CLASSICS still in operation?
Yes!  After Darryl Strickler's (founder) death, his son, Derek Strickler, has continued operating Rowable Classics with the many partners across the country we have worked with for over 25 years!   See "Our Legacy" website tab for more information.  

Rowable Classic book still available?
