Rigger in Rio Dulce ?

I am looking for a rigger in Rio Dulce who can swage terminals on 10 and 12 mm diameter shrouds.
I have been told there is a French rigger based in Texan Bay .
Could anyone give me his email address and/or telepone number ?
Beyond our expensive yachts and powerfull tenders, beyond the beach front bar, live the real inhabitants of the land we mean to visit.....

Apparently, they use Sta-Loks, not swages.

Re: Rigger in Rio Dulce ?

No swaging services in the Rio, or Guatemala to my knowledge, but Tom works with Sailing Services out of Ft. Lauderdale. He can help you get your rigging made up and imported, then install it.

He's not French, but he is a good guy. His shop is near the old "Texan Bay" marina.
