Make sure you replace the forestay...no need to put a new furler around an old rod/ wire.

If he's gonna be that far north that might work, but there are some cost/logistics involved if his boat is normally kept near Deltaville that might more than offset any potential savings.

Hmmm. I wonder why he couldn't do it. I know he's been at it a long time. Maybe he's retiring?

The rigger over at Deltaville boat yard is the only other game in town in Deltaville. I don't doubt they can do a good job but if you do use them, just get the quote in writing (I doubt even that will be less than you expect) and clearly explain to them you don't intend to pay more than that for the work discussed AND that you should be contacted BEFORE they perform any other work.

You might also talk to Schroeder's Yacht Systems. I suspect they could probably do a decent job as well.

calmharbor Knothead - Thanks for all the good info. I also live in Florida on the Gulf side.
I have my boat in Virginia where two of my children live. I plan on getting the boat to Florida at some point. The price I got was
for them to do all the work because I am out of the country. I think I will just
wait till I get back and find a rigger and help him and learn something. Thanks Again

I'm nowhere near the Chesapeake Bay. Sorry.
I guess business is much better up there if you are having a hard time finding a rigger to do the work. Down here in FL, especially since the oil spill, things have been extremely tight.

I would ask the riggers that you talk to how long they expect the job to take. I can't see how anyone could take more than four to five hours at the most to install a new furling system. Even factoring in the new wire.

The guy comes to the boat, eases the mainsheet and backstay and pulls the mast forward with a halyard. He pulls the clevis pin on the now slack forestay and then hooks up his gear and goes aloft. He secures the headstay/old furler with another halyard and pulls the top pin. Then he drops back down to the deck and with your help, lowers the old headstay/furler to the dock. All that should take only about a half hour to forty five minutes.
Then he measures the pin to pin length of the old stay and makes up the new one. Presumably with mechanical fittings. That should take about a half hour at the most.
Then he assembles the new furler. One and a half to two hours.
He raises the system, again with your help, goes aloft to pin it, comes down to pin the bottom and retunes the rig. Another half hour.
If you have him run the furling line and install the sail, that could take another half hour or so.

I am assuming that you aren't hiring two people. If you are not available to help and he has to provide his own assistant, that could add a considerable cost.

Either the riggers up there are making one hell of an hourly wage or they are really slow.

I have contacted several boatyards about installation and received only
one quote. The quote was $700. I wanted to know is this a reasonable
price for installation? If anyone knows of a good installer between
Deltaville and Norfolk Virginia that would be less please let me know.
I did contact a couple in Deltaville but they were too busy.
Thank You.
