CalebD will become famous soon enough
So did you look up Knothead, the rigger in St. Pete? Or did you use someone else?

Brad Kadau from Paradise Yacht Service is also good. Make sure that you contact him as far in advance as you can because he is always busy.

Very sorry to revive this thread a year later, but I am looking for the exact same thing. Creedence, which rigger's services did you end up using? Please let me know. Thanks!

No worries. Knothead is your man. No doubt.

Re: Looking for a rigger in the Tampa Bay area

Actually, I'm glad you brought this post up. I try to follow up on my posts like this so these threads can be used as reference, but this one fell through the cracks.

I tried going with Knothead, and I'm not sure but I think there may have been some issues (death in the family, etc) that kept them from following up with me beyond an email. I certainly wouldn't avoid using him in the future, I just think his plate may have been too full at the time. Unfortunately, because I was on a schedule, I had to go with someone else.

I ended up going with Sunrise Sails and Rigging in Palmetto: (941) 721-4471

He's not the cheapest, but he is prompt, follows through, and does quality work. If I remember right, it came to about $4000 for the rigging and a new MKIV Harken furler, that's parts, labor and installation. I ended up using him to design and build a mainsail as well.

Thanks for the info, Creedence!

Creedence, I really apologize if we didn't follow up with you as we should have. I don't remember our correspondence.
We did have a death in the family recently but that shouldn't have affected anything other than being a little shorthanded in the office.
I'm glad that Jim was able to help you out. He's a good guy and I'm sure that he needed the work as much as we did.
Again, my apologies.

Edit: Creedence, I went back and checked my PMs and I found our conversation. I can only guess that you didn't get my wife's last email where she asked you to contact us when you returned stateside.

Hey Knothead,

Yeah there is a possibility the spam filters/email gods may have interfered, and unfortunately due to both yard and work schedules, I had to have everything lined up before I got back to the US. Like I said, I would certainly not hesitate to use you in the future or recommend folks go with your services (always eager to support fellow Sailnetters). My particular case was probably a bit more time sensitive than usual.
