Modern and Traditional Rigging

 
 

TRADITIONAL YACHTS - TRADITIONAL STANDING RIGGING


From classic yachts to traditional working boats, TS Rigging can provide everything from block refurbishment or replacement mast hoops to a complete re-rig. We are one of the last rigging shops in the UK to work with marine grade galvanised wire, made to order for us in a lay and gauges suitable for rigging.

With the in-house skills to hand-splice both wire and rope and to seize and serve, combined with traditional and modern materials and methods, TS Rigging is able to produce authentic, long-lasting, low maintenance rigs. We manufacture our own range of wooden blocks and mast hoops in our rigging shed, to standard sizes or bespoke to order. TS Rigging is also expert in traditional leathering, finishing gaff saddles and bowsprit travellers to provide years of service.


TRADITIONAL RIGGING WIRE - GALVANISED
Mild Steel 7x7 Galvanised Marine Grade provides a very traditional look and feel. It requires some maintenance by way of dressing during the year, but if looked after, can last the lifetime of the boat. We use wire from a reputable British manufacturer, which is heavily galvanised specifically for the marine industry.

TRADITIONAL RIGGING WIRE - STAINLESS STEEL
Stainless Steel 7x7 wire (7 bunches of 7 strands) is used on traditional wooden yachts with a lower tensioned rig. Due to its construction the wire has slightly more give in it and is kinder to wooden hulls.
