Standing Rigging

Don't know if this is what this place is for but here goes. I'm just looking for someone who might be able to give me an idea on the cost for new standing rigging on a 35' coronado , 70's hull and where or who I might go to find it. Tried Coronado apparently its not simple enough for them to just set up a web site and give the information.

Re: standing rigging

New rigging isn't something you would go to the manufacturer to buy. Like sending your car back to Ford in Detroit to get a new windshield. No, you go to a local glass shop.

For rigging go to any sailboat rigger. Maybe tell us what country you're located in and someone can recommend a sailboat rigger for you.

For reference, in the USA in Florida I purchased all new rigging for a 42' cutter for about $3000. I will install it myself but it wouldn't cost but a few hundred max to get it installed locally.

For a 35' sloop if you are in Florida you could get it installed for $3000.

Coronado wouldn't be much help considering that they have been out of business since the 70's. If you Google your boat model sailboatdata may have the info you need.

Re: standing rigging

Measure the length of the stays and shrouds and the diameter of the wire. Check around to find a price for that many feet of 316 SS wire plus a few feet. Double the the number of stays to get the total number of terminals. Find your best price on Norseman/StaLok terminals for the diameter wire. Have fun doing your own rigging with the wire terminals. Shouldn't take you more than a day.

OK that's kinda what I thought. I am in fl, in the fl keys Marathon area but I think I might go up the coast a bit to buy this since the keys tend to be a bit more pricey.

Re: standing rigging

Another option in FL if you want to go further north try Sailing Services in Miami. I have been dealing with them for 40 years.

I did this in the spring. Here's how:

The world encompassed: Rigging: The game

Hope this helps. I wouldn't jump into a rerig without closely inspecting the condition of the chain plates, knees and tangs, and repairing or replacing any suspicious parts.

I got away with eight new stays/shrouds and a couple of pins for about $875. If you need to replace tangs and plates, you can spend considerably more.
