Looking for rigger in FL near Stuart

I need to have a rig inspection and most likely new standing rigging for my Pearson 365. In the Abacos now and want to return to somewhere near Stuart to have it done. Can anyone give e a suggestion as to who and where?

Mack Sails is very good at rigging and are located in Stuart.

Second the recommendation for Mack. Been dealing with them for almost 40 years. Ask for Travis and tell him Skip from Gainesville sent you. Maybe he'll give me a couple of free sails for the referral.

Re: Looking for rigger in FL near Stuart

I've ordered new sails through them, and if that all works out OK, will most likely get them to replace my chainplates, mast step and standing rigging next year. They said they did that kind of work all the time, no problem

Re: Looking for rigger in FL near Stuart

been getting my sails and Mack Packs from Mack for years and recently a complete rerig and they're right there in Stuart. Good guys, small shop so you're not paying a lot of overhead. Richard is an excellent rigger, too!

Re: Looking for rigger in FL near Stuart

I concure with prior posts regarding Mack Sales. My experience is that they are knowledgeable, proficient and focused on serving a customer's needs. Their years of experience and background provides them a depth and breadth of solutions available to discerning sailors. Regardless of their location they are a great choice and yet they are located in Stuart.

Re: Looking for rigger in FL near Stuart

Mack Sails just replaced all the standing rigging and chain plates on our Brewer 12.8. Colin Mack is great to work with. In our experience he is very good about sticking to his estimates. I would certainly use him again.
