Rigging

If you are a sailor, you know the most critical component of your vessel above the water is the integrity of your rig.  Conditions on the seas are variable, the condition of your rigging cannot be.  A cracked swage, broken sheave, or frayed halyard could result in catastrophic failure.  Regular inspection of your rigging is vital, not only for the performance of your vessel, but for the safety of your crew.  Our professional riggers will inspect the condition of your rig from the keel bolt torque settings to the mast head gear.
