Help? Replacing rigging in Grenada

Cat. is on hard in Grenada
We need to locate a rigging surveyor and recommendations for replacing the standing rigging. Any suggestions?

Question: Should rigging be replaced on the hard or after boat is returned to water? or does that even matter?

Doing it on the hard can make pulling the stick out easier. That is, if you want to inspect the stick and its fittings, which is often a good idea.

If the rig is old enough, you may consider saving yourself the cost of the surveyor.

Check Louis at Grenada Marine. He made new rigging for my friends' boat.

I think the guy who owns "Turbulance rigging " is a rigging surveyor he is right behind Budget marine at Prickly bay his name is Richard.

We got our rigging replaced on the hard and did a rig tune when we got back in the water we were happy with the result.

I second Turbulence. Richard is the French guy who owns it... He is super knowledgeable. His project manager is a Brit named George who is also really good...

Thanks for the suggestion. That works well as the boat is at Prickly Bay.
FYI...I am only doing survey first because of escrow requirement on closing.
