Re: All you "Riggers" out there

My Allmand is a 1979 and I just replaced all my standing rigging. It looked just like yours. You get used to looking at it and don't really "see" how bad it's possibly getting. When the rigger...

Spreader Boots

Hi All,

I purchased (what I thought was a pair that would fit) spreader boots from Taylor Made and they fit like doo-doo. They're the 2-3" (largest they have) and when you install them the gap is...

Re: Double Standards when it comes to the boat!

When we got the boat, there where enough bags of spare lines to outfit an entire boat. However, they were all frayed and worn. I'm replacing all lines with this mast refit I'm doing now. OUT with the...

Upper shrouds and spreaders

Hi All,

Seems simple enough, upper shrouds go into grooves in the spreader tips, held in by wire wraps covered with a boot or tape. When I get ready to re-step in a couple weeks, I'm wondering how...
