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.
