Rigging Inspections And Consultations
Carbotech provides a comprehensive rigging inspection on all masts to vessels located within Hong Kong and throughout Aisa. We inspect all running and standing rigging. All rigging termination points are visually inspected. Sheave pins and sheaves inspected, spreaders, furler or headsail foils, and all gooseneck fittings. We have formulated a check list that covers over 60 points, but will inevitably find additional points while doing a rig check, as every vessel is different.
Sailboat Rig Servicing
We also check all light fittings, blocks, cars, tracks, clutches, winches and any other hardware. A complete cleaning and crack testing of all rigging ends & pins, can be added if the mast is being pulled. We provide a detailed report of our findings, including suggestions for any additional parts and work required.
