Mast Spars and Rigging

Insurance Companies and surveyors advise that stainless standing rigging should be replaced every 10-12 years.

We can offer a full rigging service for Yachts up to 30 ft. During layup spars and rigging are thoroughly inspected and a written condition report provided.

It is recommended that all running and standing rigging should be checked every year.

To preserve wooden spars, regular varnishing should be undertaken with fittings removed to ensure that the mast is sound.

Racing accidents always occur resulting in mast and rigging breakages. Haines boast that breakages will be repaired ready for racing the following weekend for the racing keelboats, for whom replacement spars are stocked. Rigging repairs for other vessels are easily dealt with but the replacement of non-stock spars may take longer.

We stock Harken and many other chandlery items. Whatever you need please give us the opportunity to give you a quotation and we will be pleased to offer ISC members a 10% discount.

Haines offer maintenance and repair to the spars of traditionally gaff rigged boats.

New spars, bow sprits or bumpkins can be manufactured and fitted
