I guess, the lisence and insurance coupled with the experience, usually gained by working for a reputable rigging company as an apprentice for a while would make some one a professional.
I did not know that a rigging company that rigs sailboats can be licensed. I did an internet search and finding nothing that indicates boat riggers can be licensed. Can you provide a link that shows how it is done or a link to a licensed rigger? I do not think even Brian Toss is licensed.
