Rig Checks are essential in maintaining healthy performance from your rig. Rig checks are comprehensive assessments which include a visual inspection of all you rigging and are accompanied by a full maintenance report with supporting photos and recommendations.
Rig Checks can be conducted as part of a pre-purchase survey or to satisfy your insurance company.
Some rigging components will take on more strain than others during their working life. For example, your chainplates may not have been checked since the boat was launched and failure could be catastrophic. Furling systems are another common part of your yachts’ rigging that need to operate smoothly. It is often very difficult to notice signs of stress but with a trained eye we can spot this and avert a potential mishap.
Ruel Rigging recommends that you have a full rig check completed every year and depending on the intended use of your yacht.
The Ruel Rigging Team are known for their thoroughness and know that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. A full re-rig will leave nothing untouched so you can expect it to be completed to the highest of standards.
We will invite you to inspect your mast when it is down, and together discussing the project before selecting the best option for your re-build. Each task is carried out paying special attention to detail and in consultation with our customers.
