The Rigging Department
The experienced, professional riggers in our full service rigging shop can assist with any type of commissioning for your boat, whether it's technical or aesthetic. We can make your racing boat go faster or your pleasure cruiser look sharper. We do it all, at prices that are competitive with the major chain "yachting" stores. There are always riggers on-site to give customers professional advice, answer questions and assist with difficult to find products and services.
We perform all types of traditional and high-tech line splicing, done right here in the shop, sometimes while you wait. We stock an extensive supply of cordage from New England Ropes, FSE Robline, Yale Cordage, Samson and other vendors, so we will have the rope you need, whether it's three strand, double-braid, core to core, or mega-braid, nylon, polyester, Vectran, or Dyneema. If you need a high-tech halyard or want to lighten up your weight aloft, we have the products you need and the professionals to do the job right.
We produce custom dock lines, mooring lines and anchoring packages. We supply the complete package of chain, rope and swivel. Our huge inventory of nylon rope includes many colors and sizes up to 1" in diameter. By performing the work on-site, we are able to provide the correct size eye for any situation. Our rigging staff, in conjunction with New England Ropes, developed the floating dinghy towing bridal. We also manufacture custom dinghy lifts out of Spectra or wire. Let us give you a quote. If your fenders and fender covers are looking tired, we provide custom covers in a variety of fleece colors to dress up your boat at the dock.
You can trust the rigging staff to design and install all-important lifelines in strict compliance with ORC regulations. Our on-site swaging machine allows us to work on standing rigging up to 3/8" diameter. Let the riggers inspect your lifelines for age, rust and wear and give you a quote for replacement.
We provide complete aloft mast services. Our riggers will climb your mast to fix any problem, from bulb replacement to equipment installation. We are experienced in repair and installation of furling systems by Harken, Schaeffer and Profurl. Smart sailors schedule a yearly rig inspection with us to make sure that routine maintenance or part replacement is done and thier rigs are safe for the season. Call on us.
