Was wondering if any of you esteemed members could recommend any riggers in the windwards / leewards? I need to start looking at replacing standing rigging
for a bahia
46 and I'm looking for a rigger who can do the whole job right the first time if you know what I mean ;-). This boat is heading into the pacific this year so I want to be sure its done properly. This boat is at rodney bay right now but I can move it wherever.
Having said that, on the flip side of the coin, has anybody here had a go with synthetic rigging
yet? The benefits of the weight reduction up high will make a big difference on this boat me thinks, even though for an older production boat she sails
quite well as it is. I spent some time on a gunboat last month and loved the 'simplicity' of its standing rigging where it can be user tweaked and/or components replaced fairly easily.
Any suggestions / discussion on either above greatly appreciated.
