Tools and Techniques for Modern and
Traditional Rigging - The Rigging Handbook is the definitive book on the
art of rigging - a classic in its field.
Here is the only book that will show you:
The principles of rig design in a language you can understand How to
choose the right rope for your sheets, halyards, shorelines and anchor
lines How to splice wire, stranded rope, braided rope, rope to wire, and
rope to anchor chain. How to work safely aloft. How to jury rig when
shrouds break and masts go over the side.
The Rigging Handbook is ideal for anyone who
wants the satisfaction and cash savings of stepping their own mast,
inspecting and maintaining their own rig, and turning their own
tailsplices and wire eyesplices. It is especially valuable for bluewater
voyagers who want to feel secure in the knowledge that, should a shroud
carry away at sea, they will be able to repair it.
