Rigging

Sailboat rigging wears out over time, so it is important to check it regularly and keep an eye on the amount of wear and tear. This guarantees the safety of the boat and of those who use it, as well as ensuring high performance while sailing.

But how does one know when the shrouds need changing?

The durability of the rigging mainly depends on the quality of the materials used. If the shrouds are made from poor quality material, the safety of the mast and the performance of the rigging will both be compromised.

The type of shrouds you choose will also affect their durability. If they are made from wound wire or Dyform wire, they will probably last 10 – 12 years, but if they are made from stainless steel rod or synthetic fibre, their life expectancy goes down to 7 – 10 years.

Finally, the degree of wear and tear in the shrouds is proportional to the use made of the boat. Many hours sailing close-hauled will put more stress on the whole mast structure than many years moored in port.

If you’re buying a sailing boat, if you’ve never had the mast surveyed or if it’s about 10 years since you last changed the shrouds, now is the time to do a thorough check. It’s very important to use professionals. Rigging work involves very precise adjustments and good coordination, as well as the use of special cranes and high-quality materials: all of which a private owner would find it very difficult to obtain at competitive prices.
