Best rigger just moved to Annapolis

Hopefully I've contributed enough to SailNet the last few years so the moderators will extend me a little slack. I have no personal finantial interest in the company I'm going to tell you about but as you will see I know their new hire very well.

My son just took a job at Atlantic Spars and Rigging from Annapolis.
He is in charge of the Herrington Harbor location.

If you can't embarrass your children what fun is their in life.
It would be very funny is if a bunch of sailnetters called the main office and said they heard that the best rigger in the country, Steve from Connecticut, just got hired in the Herrington branch and they wanted to know how long the wait was for service.

In all seriousness I'm very proud of Steve. He is like a Sherlock Holmes for boats, unbelievably observant. He has a very good work ethic who does not accept anything other than the best work but still works very fast. He also has been racing all his life and since he is new in town you should look him up if you need crew.

If any of you guys get to meet him down there, and it goes well, please post your experience. If not so well, send me a PM and I'll see if I can help you out.

I'm moving to HH this spring, so I'll look him up if I need any rigging work.

That said, I'm doing everything I can to make sure I have as much work as possible taken care of before I leave the low cost environs of Deltaville.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

David,

Congrats to Steve! He sounds like a good egg and you have reason to brag a little.

I hope he likes the area. The Chesapeake is very different from New England, but it has its virtues too. It takes a little while for it to sink in, though.

I'll watch for him and keep him on the short list when I need rigging services.

Thanks John.
In what way is the area different other than having a longer season and fewer rocks.

Thanks for the info -- very timely. We're at HHS but within two years we become permanent cruisers. Before we go I'm planning to have my standing rigging completely checked and anything even remotely worn replaced or I may just replace everything.
BTW compared to New England we have lighter wind and -- at least for this winter -- more snow

Will need to give him a call. I need to replace a couple stays and I race out of HHN every week, very convienient if the prices are resonable.

Remember to lay it on thick. The goal is embarrassment.
I'm amazed about how much he can get done in a short time.

If you have the right tools. Have done it a hundred times before, have the parts delivered to the job it is amazing how fast they can knock stuff out.
Let me know I'm interested in an independent assessment.
