Riggers in Massachusetts
I posted this also in the Gear and Maintenance forum, so no need to reply if you replied there.

Looking for recs. on a Rigging Company in the Northeast (MA) area. I got quotes from two Riggers for a complete rig. Company 1 -( Rigging Only in Fairhaven, MA) ROM quotes ~ $2200 for the complete rig. New stays/shrouds, fastening hardware, turnbuckles, and they put it together,but I have to remove old rig and install new rig. Company 2 (NE Rigging in Boston/Concord, MA) quoted about the same, but the price does not include the head stay. I would need to add ~$350 for that.

Anyone have experience with both of these companies? I don't think either is significantly better than the other from my discussions with each, but the extra $350 is significant, unless NE Rigging is that much better.

I keep my boat in NB/Fairhaven. Haven't needed them, but have always heard the Fairhaven outfit is one of best on east coast.

I used Rigging Only to have a new rig built earlier this summer. They made some kind of a mistake related to a change in the hardware they were using, but they fixed it immediately with no questions asked.

Got most of my rigging from Rigging Only in Fairhaven. They have quality materials and people who know what they are doing. They get a thumbs-up from me. They recently made up a new headstay for me. The swaged eye is obviously MUCH heftier and better quality than the original.
