Essential for those without expert knowledge, and/or owners who do not go aloft. The Doyle Rigging mast and rigging inspection provides a completely impartial overview of the condition of your mast and standing rigging. For all yachts, from one season old to very old, these reports will give you annual rig records for your future reference.
Our rig inspection options include; full inspection with photos and a written report, or full inspection with verbal report. All inspections come with our professional recommendations. All visual inspections will include mast, spars, all running and standing rigging. This is a mobile service so our rigging technicians will carry out the inspection at your boats current location. Inspection is for the boat owner only and is not transferable. It cannot be used to raise finance or insurance for the vessel.
MAST REMOVAL & RE-STEPPING
From our base at Half Moon Bay we have two mast gantries from which we can step and un-step masts whether from the water or from a trailer. Any masts exceeding maximum weight for the gantries cranes are used in place of.
With many years experience on various types of yachts, our team can maximize your yachts potential by tuning your mast to get the most out of your sails and yacht. This service can include sea trials.
