The Complete Rigger's Apprentice: Tools and Techniques for Modern and Traditional Rigging

International Marine Publishing

By Brion Toss

The only book you need on sailboat rigging and marlinspike arts, revised and updated

The Complete Rigger's Apprentice offers today's marine professionals a complete, up-to-date resource on today's rigging best practices and traditions. This expanded edition features new material on multihull rig design, how to make and use soft-shackles, and the latest information on Sta-Lok (mechanical) terminals. In addition to sharing traditional rigging methods, new techniques are taught here, for the first time, including how to work with today's high-modulus fibers for both running and standing rigging.

Continuing its tradition, this book helps you gain satisfaction and hard-cash savings from stepping your own masts, inspecting and maintaining your own rigs, and turning your own tail splices and wire eye splices. Easy-to-understand explanations demonstrate how to make hundreds of pieces of handmade gear, which saves you hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of dollars.
