Some Recent Projects

Hummingbird and Oriole

Keeping the Wings Alive

Hummingbird and Oriole, from Rubicon 3 Adventure Sailing, have recently been in with us at The Rig Shop. They both had a full mast step and tune, hydraulic systems service, full standing and running rigging replaced using Petersen Structural Rigging fittings and Marlow Ropes. We wish them the best of time on their next adventures!

Bruce Jacobs of Rubicon 3 comments;

“Rubicon 3 heads off on long range ocean expeditions to some of the more remote parts of the world. Spitsbergen, Greenland, Central America and more. We need to know that the standing rigging on our boats is of the highest quality. Finding a good rigging company is one of the tougher jobs we have. Plenty of people talk a good game but over the years we were often disappointed. Finding Harry at The Rig Shop was a huge win for us. They are incredibly knowledgeable and skilful, deliver great results every time and are mighty friendly and patient, even when we ask daft questions. If you are looking for top quality riggers, we couldn’t recommend these guys more highly. We trust them, quite literally, to the ends of the earth.”

Tilda – Ocean 62

A Blast from the Past

Ketch rigged Ocean 62 ‘Tilda’ came back for a complete re-rig, having originally worked on her in 1985! Both masts out, standing and running rigging package using Marlow Ropes. Many other fabrications carried out.

Fabrizio Mancini, owner of Tilda comments;

“The Rig Shop is definitely the right place if you are looking for highly skilled professionals that can assist you in every detail of your rigging needs. Harry offers his immense knowledge as part of the service, making you look at things from a different perspective, providing solutions and sorting problems out; he can sit next to you and give highly valuable advice. I appreciate their integrity, experience, team work and more than everything they deliver on time and above expectations!”
