Connecticut Rigger?

Well I've got the boat hauled out, mast unstepped, she's covered for the winter and winterized. Now on to the projects . . . .

First on my list is replacing the forestay. Seems I have experienced the dreaded halyard wrap. The wire at the top of the forestay, coming out of the fitting, is unwrapped, or straightened out for about 2 inches or so. I'll also have a look at the length of the tube that the jenny is wrapped around (sorry, not sure of the proper name for this) to ensure it's up as high as it should be to prevent this in the future.

This will require a rigger to build a new stay. Does anyone have recommendations of a rigger that they have used in the Milford, CT area with good result?

Thanks in advance
jk

Best rigger in the state is Steve at Brewer's in Westbrook. But them I'm prejudiced as he is related.
