    As you can imagine, a company with a history spanning more than 100 years has a lot of products out and about in the world. Among all the boats and oars that are still around, did you know that there are also javelins George made during World War II?!? It is true!

    With the popularity of ‘The Boys in the Boat’ there has been a surge of people from inside and outside the rowing world trying to find more information about items in their possession that carry the ‘Built By George Pocock’ sticker. We hope this forum becomes THE place for rowing historians, cedar shell aficionados, interior decorators, antique dealers, woodworkers, craftsmen, and various other stakeholders interested in Pocock Racing Shells history and cedar shells to find answers and make connections.

    Remember: Pictures are always helpful!

    Just thought I’d kick off some Classic cedar love here. This is Daisy.
    1975 Pocock Standard Single GPRCS1550575
    Once owned by the University of Washington and rowed by Eleanor McElvaine. Sold to Randi Krumm, who rowed the boat for many years. The boat is currently located at the University of Washington Canoe House.

    Hi,

    I just bought a Pocock double and it has a number stamped into a metal plate on it. The numbers are 534853. Can you tell me anything about the boat from this number?

    Thanks.

    Hi Bridget, there should be a longer serial number on the hull on the starboard side near the stern. For example, here’s a serial number from a 1979 double: Pocock Double GPRAP212M79J

    I hope that helps.

    Thanks for this Forum. I just became aware of it through Bridget and linked to it from the Pocock Classic Cedar Singles website at http://pocockclassic.org/links.html – Jim Buckley
