If you're buying the boat in SE Asia
, get the rig done there, and the new sails from there will be serviceable. [ If you're picky about sails, you may not be happy. ] If you're buying the boat in Queensland
, we have a rigger there that we trust, built our new mast
when our first Insatiable was dismasted, and we hired him to help when we hauled our mast
out this year for a number of jobs. His work is good, but he is a bit over-subscribed, and our "a week" time estimate turned out to be fulfilled in 6 weeks. PM me for a name, if you're interested. It'll cost more in Aus., but if you lost
a rig on your way to SE Asia
, that would be VERY expensive, and sometimes someone gets hurt.
