Re: Standing Rigging Costs

We had our Hans Christian 38 cutter professionally re-rigged in 2007 in San Francisco, swaged fittings, didn't replace the turnbuckles. We did remove the mast with a crane so I could do some other work on it. Total cost for re rigging portion was around $7k. I'd guess now with yard and rigging wire rates it'd be more like 8-9k.

But as usual, when you bring a boat into the yard it's a good time to do an insurance survey, paint the bottom, and other items will invariably arise so I always try and be prepared to spend 30-50% more than the estimate for the things I "plan" to have done.

Standing Rigging Costs

More and More I'm thinking wait until I'm ready to pull the stick, have it re-wired, antenna repalcement, LED tr-color, possible Radar mount, inspect and repair sheeves, Possibly chain plates etc.
I think I may investigate Island Packet re-fitting the boat before we go full time, but leave her as is until then, assuming it's in a condition to do so.
I can see this being a deeper you dig, the more you find that should be done kind of thing and I'm neither emotionally or financially prepared for a several month really expensive re-fit yet. Plus who knows what things I will consider important after I get some real experience. I only have beliefs and opinions now.

Plus if every weekend is a work on the boat weekend and I have to start pouring money into it right off the bat, the wife may decide she doesn't like it.

Re: Standing Rigging Costs

Just under $8000 on my Cal 39. I replaced everything but the aluminum mast (although I did re-step the mast to replace the steel base plate with fiberglass). Chainplates, Tangs, Turnbuckles, over-sized standing rigging, everything. I am brand new to this whole thing, so I hired a guy to order the parts and teach me the process as we went. I was beside him soaking in his knowledge the whole time and it was actually a lot of fun! Much better than sweating away at the engine

Re: Standing Rigging Costs

Reading this post made me think of some youtube Rigger discussions on the Drake Paragon channel.

Re: Standing Rigging Costs

About 1200$ without turnbuckles for my 34ft cutter (7mm) DIY while at anchor. Took off one stay at a time and took it to the rigger to make copy and replaced it. Took about 5 days and a lot of mast climbing and trips to the rigger.

Re: Standing Rigging Costs

Yep and only one point of failure. Boats are a compromise.
