East Coast Riggers?

We will need to completely rerig the Discovery 67, a big job. I would know where to do it on this side of the pond, but the Disco is presently in U.S. waters. I don't want to wait until we get her to Europe as we will have a tough high Northern Atlantic crossing to get there. Don't want to do that on iffy standing rigging.

Can anyone recommend a really good rigger somewhere on the East Coast? Charleston, Jacksonville, Annapolis, etc. would be fine as we will be taking the boat gradually up the coast over the summer.

Re: East Coast Riggers?

If you're in the Annapolis area I'd recommend Annapolis Rigging - call (or email) Jay. If they're too busy (and they often are), my second choice would be The Rigging Company.

Re: East Coast Riggers?

Jacksonville has several riggers in or around town.
Call the West Marine store in downtown J'ville and they can recommend several.

Re: East Coast Riggers?

Florida Rigging & Hydraulics in Riviera Beach Fl.


Sailing Services in Miami.


I've not had a re-rig from them, but both supplied parts to me and did quotes, were helpful and recommended by others.


There are a few up in Newport I could look up, but you probably won't need them.
