Boats should be inspected by a professional rigger at least every two to three years .
We recommend all new customers start with a rig inspection. The inspection includes climbing your mast, checking the mast head fittings, and in-mast sheaves. For the deck level inspection we check the shrouds, stainless fittings, lifelines and lifeline fittings, gooseneck fittings, vang fittings, running rigging, winches, anchor fittings, sails, pulpit and stanchion bases, jib furlers, boom furlers, and more.
Rig inspections reveal weak points in your rigging that could be potentially dangerous. During rig inspections our goal is your safety.
From replacing or modifying to upgrading to the latest in lightweight rigging, Pacific Offshore Rigging is here to serve you.
When it becomes time to replace your standing rigging, we can help you through the process. Whether it’s replacing some old wires while the mast is standing or pulling your mast, we do what works best for the customer and we make sure the job is done right. We have upgraded rigs to Dyform, which is slightly stronger and lower stretched than standard 1 x 19 standing rigging. We have even upgraded rigs to rod, which can have substantial weight aloft reduction.
The latest upgrade is using synthetic rigging. We have used synthetic rigging in place of rod and/or wire. It provides the lightest weight aloft ratio. When we have reconditioned some cruising boats that originally had rod rigging, we have gone back to wire for substantial cost savings. When it comes time to replace or upgrade your standing rigging, Pacific Offshore Rigging is here to help you with your project.

Older masts and booms can get a new life by reconditioning.
We pull the mast, remove all the hardware, and fair the paint better than new. This is also the time when modifications can be made to modernize the sail handling systems to make sailing easier and more fun.

Furling Systems make sailing easier, taking the hassle out of hoisting, dropping, changing, and storing your headsails. It helps you get to the enjoyment of sailing faster and allows you to stay out longer, allowing you to handle a variety of conditions with more ease.
We install new systems (Headsail, Inner-fore-stays, behind the mast Main Furler, in mast furling, Code 0’s, and Top down), instruct you how to use them, and service and maintain old systems.

When purchasing a new or used boat from out of town, it is often delivered by truck. Upon delivery it comes off the truck, waiting to be assembled. POR is here to help you through process of organizing your time needed in a boat yard, assembling the mast and related hardware, and preparing your boat for sailing.
For adding grip and comfort, on your wheel, consider our custom leather work. Also consider putting it on your spreader tips to protect your sail. Leather is ideal because it is a material that is breathable, making it one of the better guards against chafing.
