"C.L. Rigging is my top pick for rigging work in the Chesapeake! An experienced sailmaker, rigger and professional racer, Collin understands ALL parts of the rigging equation. He is quite familiar with older equipment and has some great ideas for how to repair or upgrade. He is very good about educating the customer and then allowing him/her to make the decisions, and not pushing his own agenda. His installation of new, even custom, equipment is also top notch. His attention to detail found things that other riggers missed, major structural failures that could have been catastrophic! His rates are reasonable and he is a pleasure to work with.
C.L. Rigging is a top-notch rigging company. Experienced, skilled, dependable, ethical. The best value in the Annapolis area!"
1980 Cal 39 MKII
I hope this message finds you well. I am writing this note to let you know just how completely utterly satisfied and enamored with the new design and rigging job performed by and your team over the last couple of months. Boomerang!, a classic, beautiful 1980 Cal 39, Mark II, looks, although we have done a complete refit, incredible and better than new. Her new rigging stands her apart from virtually every other vessel in the Hinckley Marina in Oxford, MD.
The professional, courteous service provided by your team was exceptional, and your knowledge and keen insight throughout the design process into sailing and my specific rig led to a highly responsive new system only dreamed of during the time when Boomerang! was built so many years ago. And, underway she proves it!
Once again, thanks to you and your team for the hard work. I will most assuredly recommend CL Rigging, and you specifically, Collin, personally to anyone and everyone as we sail around the Bay, and later this year into Bermuda, the Caribbean, and Florida where we plan to winter. We’ve already been asked! Thanks again....
Thanks again, and all the very best,
Charles Strasburger, S/V Boomerang!, Oxford, MD
CEO, Raptor Identification Systems, Inc.
Thank you for your fast, efficient and professional rigging services! Our rig has never been in such good condition or so well tuned.
Your complete review of the rig and your improvement to many parts of it have made it safer while also enhancing performance.
During the six years we have had our Tartan 3700 with a solent rig, we've had several boatyards and riggers tune it. None of them did it to our satisfaction. However, you exceeded our expectations. The fact that you did this so well, so promptly and so efficiently for a customer just passing through on a Chesapeake cruise, is a testament to your integrity and professionalism.
