Rig Maintenance

All rigs should be checked and maintained regularly. The rig and sails are your boat’s “engine” and as with all engines, the fittings should be checked at least twice a year. Are your rigging screws starting to fail? Are all treads and pins intact? Cleaning the fittings and adding fresh lubricant, will extend the lifetime of your rig. A rig’s lifetime depends upon the standard of maintenance, however as a general rule, your boat needs to be de-rigged and inspected, at least every other year. A qualified inspector should inspect a wire rig after 10-15 years and a rod rig after 5-8 years.
