Re: Ball park number for rigging replacement

Regarding Rod rigging: I am not persuaded by the argument that other boats have it. Many other boats have steering wheels, jib furlers, and electric winches, none of which I would have aboard. My philosophy is the simpler, the better. I will be the first to admit my attitudes were formed many years ago when rod was very much a new thing and there were a lot of failures. Maybe today it is more reliable. But, like the fellow said in Casino, why take a chance?

Re: Ball park number for rigging replacement

Don't forget you'll probably have to replace it all again in 10 years as well.
But as someone said, ask a rigger. They will be only too ready to talk about it. It depends what you need to replace. Just replaced standing rigging and furler, but not deck fittings or spreaders, on a 37' Moody for under 6k. A rigger will be able to assess the state of deck fittings and spars, identify cracks etc. and also tension the rig correctly.

Re: Ball park number for rigging replacement

Ballpark, certainly less than $2000.... assume you do some of the work. 1/4" wire is less than $1 a foot.

Re: Ball park number for rigging replacement

We are replacing all rigging on our Cape Dory 33, including turnbuckles, is being done by a rigger, $2500, plus another $3300 for a new Harken roller furling unit. It ain't cheap!!

Re: Ball park number for rigging replacement

Standing rigging (wire, not rod) on a 39 ft Pearson with all turnbuckles ran about $5,000 3 years ago in CT.

Re: Ball park number for rigging replacement

I will never purchase another boat without having a rigger go aloft. This one just bit me hard and i know better. Newer boat, sailed very lightly, had sat for the last 2 years, lightly used. Maintenance was a bit suspect. I got in a hurry on the survey and did not have a rigger go up. After purchase my rigger went aloft...... Somewhere along the line we suspect the boat hit something with the the front stay and buckled the mast below the mast head.

No ones fault but my own. Cover your backside! It can get expensive quickly.

Re: Ball park number for rigging replacement

It cost me about $6K to have my Beneteau 37' rerigged in October. That included replacing every block and wheel in the mast and boom and replacing every bolt and turnbuckle. I can't recommend Cammeray Marina's David James enough. Not much use to you if you aren't in Sydney, however.

Re: Ball park number for rigging replacement

I assume you're talking about standing rigging. don't automatically assume the rigging is bad. inspect it, or have a professional look at it, it may be fine.

Re: Ball park number for rigging replacement

Check your insurance policy. Most policies require the standing rigging to be replaced every 10 years. BTW Rod Rigging is the devil's work.
