Guys I really wish the search feature worked better here! I'm sure this has been brought up more than numerous times. Sorry for that...

I've read a few articles and have pretty much accepted that I may not want to undertake this at this time. My sole is nearing completion and I really want to sail before summer slips by. I'm sure I could do the work, but I really hate to possibly spend more to do it myself - learning curves can be expensive. If I decide to pay someone, who does it that is close to Dayton, OH? Are there any Ohio guys on the boards that can recommend a reputable marina?

Take the mast down. Remove the rigging. Send it to riggingonly.com. Get new rigging back. Install. BTW, the POST in my sig has info on searching sailnet using google.

That won't work completely, I'm lengthening my mast. The PO dropped and bent the mast. I'll be adding back the 16 or so inches, so the rigging will have to be done from scratch. The current rigging is jury rigged and will obviously be to short.

I'll check out your write up on searches, thanks SD.

Contact Knothead on this forum, you will get excellent advice and he will be able to make whatever you need. You don't need a local rigger, I've gone that route before too. I had Knotty do our lifelines and he made it really easy and explained all the possible complications. It couldn't have been easier and they were perfect. I also had him make up some new sheets with snap shackles spliced in for my father's boat and he researched which line was best and did a beautiful job, and got them shipped in time to arrive for Father's day. Prices are very reasonable too. No connection, affiliation, etc, just a very satisfied customer.

So I could ship him my junk so he can see what he's dealing with. Then he could send my shrouds and stays long if I provided enough info on what length is needed. I could then finish it with sta-loc?

Knothead is definitely the best option. Without a doubt.

Throw him a PM.

(PS - I just can't figure out why Dog keeps hyping some online mooks over a fellow SN member. That's wrong in so many different ways - especially knowing the kind of guy Knot is. Bad form dude.)

i wouldn't use stay loc i'd go with Hayne on the bottom a little more money but the mandrel can be used over and over and water does not stay captive in pocket like others so no crevice corrosion in there the uppers can be wagged because you can;t get salt up in side unless you get knocked down.

More questions.

Is this a suitable way to fix your rigging?


It appears that i'm missing my goosneck. I've found what I may need on Dwyer's site. Do I want a sliding gooseneck or fixed?


What is this? I'm assuming that's where I slide the sail "doohickeys" in?


Thanks guys, help me learn some more please!

Is this a suitable way to fix your rigging? NO!!!!! But it's a wonderful way to get experience with dealing with failed rigging during a storm.

It sure looks like where the sail slugs fit in.

Thanks guys, help me learn some more please!
