Standing Rigging Services & Installation
The technology of standing rigging is advancing at such a pace as to make keeping up with the competition quite a daunting task. While wire is still the mainstay for most cruisers, and rod the most predominant for the racing community, at the grand prix levels new composites are making advancements faster than articles can be written. With the Pyewacket and her PBO rigging, and the Genuine Risk sporting a new set of Carbon Rods, composite standing rigging is quickly becoming the norm in the upper levels.
Regardless of whether you own a traditional sailboat, offshore cruiser, club racer, high-tech dinghy or grand prix racer, Rigworks is ready to help. With easy ordering, guaranteed quality and fast knowledgeable service, that’s why sailors and boat captains around the world turn to Rigworks for their rigging needs.
