Standing Rigging Re-Rig Quotes
Customers frequently ask for standing rigging replacement quotes or even ballpark figures for valuation purposes citing only the yacht type/model or design. Even if your yacht is a well-known one-design production yacht e.g. Westerly, Moody, Beneteau, there is still a good chance that the specification has been altered since the original build. If the owners' manual has been preserved, it may state the standard specification, but this may have been altered/upgraded for the first owner.
The Jimmy Green Rigging Team have built up a database of information from completed re-rigs over the years, but this is by no means comprehensive. There is a certain amount of information that can be gleaned from the world wide web, but this will still not go as far as individual yacht rig specifications.
It is therefore difficult to give an accurate answer without some basic information about the rig. The diameter of the wire and therefore the associated size of the terminals is fundamental to the cost. In terms of price, the other major factor will be whether you intend to replace the rigging screws/turnbuckles. Clearly the number and configuration of the stays is important, but it is much simpler to estimate their lengths and probable terminals. More specification considerations include e.g. split, adjustable and/or insulated backstays, forestay foibles caused by headsail furler fitting, linked rigging.
Jimmy Green Marine have made it possible to get an instant standing rigging re-rig quote online.
You need to know or give us the following information:
- The type of wire: KOS 1 x 19, Petersen Compact Strand or KOS flexible 7 x 19
- The diameter of the wire
- The approximate length for each stay
- The terminal at the top
- The bottom terminal (with or without rigging screw)
These CUSTOM BUILD INSTRUCTIONS will help you through the process.
For a rough guide, approximate lengths and an educated guess for the terminals will suffice. The decision on whether to replace the turnbuckles makes a big difference to the price.
The Jimmy Green Rigging Team are always on hand to help you through this process, by email or on the telephone.
If the measuring seems a daunting responsibility, send us the old rigging as a pattern. We will measure, ask any pertinent questions about the new rig and quote you before starting any work.
