    Hi, Im thinking of removing the mizzen permanently from a Formosa 41 … want more uncluttered deck space, would you have any advice on this idea … ?

    • The Rigging Company, LLP says:

      Hi Brad,

      I think that is a great idea. I mean it really all boils down to how much you need that thing for sailing. If the answer is not much, than I vote for…take it out of there and see how you like it.

      Good Luck,
      ~T.R.C.

    we are looking for replacements for the ” stemball” This “stemball” style socket was originally designed and manufactured in house for Hinckley Sailboats.

    • The Rigging Company, LLP says:

      I know the Hinckley’s well but don’t know the stem ball that you are asking about. Is this for the standing rigging? Can you send us a picture to Aaron@theriggingco.com along with some measurements?

      ~T.R.C.

  3. brian babcock says:

    looking for a new or used mast step for my 1973 Ranger 29. The mast looks original.

    • The Rigging Company, LLP says:

      There are certainly reasonable solutions available to you for this.

      Are there any markings on the spar anywhere that can be used to identify the manufacturer?

      You can send us some pictures via email at Jimmie@theriggingco.com we’d be glad to help you further.

    This blog was… how do I say it? Relevant!! Finally I have found
    something that helped me. Appreciate it!

  5. I just sold a different Cabo Rico 38 from 1988 and I love what you’ve done with the one here. The mast re-rig looks beautiful. Any major concern areas that you found on the rigging?

    • The Rigging Company, LLP says:

      Hi Aaron, thanks for the comment and the compliments. The Cabo Rico 38 is a nice solid boat. Along with the standing and running rigging replacement there where a few things that popped up:

      When we un-stepped the mast, there was heavy corrosion around the mast step and deck collar. The deck collar had to be removed with the mast, during the un-step, to lift the spar without damaging the deck. The mast butt needed to be trimmed to remove corrosion which was compromising the structure of the spar at the step. The mast step and deck collar were both cleaned up, re-anodized, and salvaged nicely.

      We replaced the chainplates as per the customer’s request. Although I don’t think they showed any signs of cracking or failure, they were replaced do to concerns of fatigue from mileage and use.

      Lastly, we replaced all of the sheaves in the stay-sail boom, main boom and the mast due to UV degredation. We also replaced the large hollow (tubing style) sheave pins in the masthead, as they were out-of-round, with solid machined pins. These are common problems with the Isomat Spars but can be resolved without much ado.

      Hope this is helpful,

      ~T.R.C.
