Take a look at what the Rigworks crew has been up to lately. You’ll probably recognize some local boats, and you might learn something, too!


Our riggers share their expertise. See their responses to questions regarding all aspects of your yacht’s standing rigging, running rigging and more.

What We Do (The Short List):

+ Rig Inspection
Whether required for your insurance, or just your peace of mind, a routine rigging inspection can do a lot to ward off bigger problems down the road. There is no better crew to go aloft on your boat than Rigworks. More >>
+ Rig Tuning
Squeak that last bit of performance from your boat, or troubleshoot that .5kt boat speed difference between tacks. We can help.
+ Re-Rigging and Deck Layouts
Perhaps the gear on your boat is getting tired, and it’s finally time. Whether you’re looking to replace the spars and all gear, or just your running rigging, we will help you plan and execute, all at our San Diego location. No need to pull in various contractors for different parts of the process. At Rigworks, we do it all.
+ Custom Splicing & Machining
With our extensive knowledge of the full spectrum of racing and cruising yachts, we can provide you with a unique deck layout completely customized to your boat and crew size. Whether you are planning a double-handed Trans Pac, full-crew buoy racing, or a solo circumnavigation, we will work with you to make your boat more ergonomic, efficient, and faster.
+ Winch Service & Installation
Maybe it’s time to power up and go with hydraulic winches. Maybe you want to go up a size for more mechanical advantage. Or it’s about time you had all the winches on the boat serviced to keep them spinning smooth. We proudly carry and service winches from Andersen, Harken, Lewmar and more. More >>
+ Furling Gear Spec & Installation
Just the headsail, or main too? Above deck or below? Continuous line or traditional spool? These are all good questions, and we’ll help you find the right answers. We stock furlers and parts for the biggest names out there: Harken, Facnor, Profurl, etc. More >>
