Sydney Rigging Specialists has recently finished the commissioning of three new customs boats.
The first custom boat was a Lutra 80 racer/cruiser built by McConaghy Boats in Sydney. This job included the commissioning of the rigging in Sydney with thorough on water testing by our staff member Craig Garnett. Also launched has been two Stallion 42s. The boats are of the same design but very different concepts. The first launched was Blackjack Too (BJ2). The concept of BJ2 is to have a fast Wednesday afternoon day racer/cruiser that can be sailed shorthanded, thus she is set up to be almost completely push button controlled with the mainsheet & traveler being operated by a hydraulic rams. The second Stallion has been commissioned by Anthony Dunn and is more racing orientated with twin top mast backstays and a more conventional race set up.
Sydney Rigging Specialists used our soft attachment “SRS Slings” and our new style “SRS I Slings” to fit out the backstay system into the transom of this boat. For more information on the “SRS Sling” and the new “SRS I Sling” contact us at Sydney Rigging Specialists.
Another very interesting project that Sydney Rigging Specialists has been involved in is the supply of running rigging for the Welbourne 7 “Brace Brace Brace”. This boat did away with traditional chainplates and instead utilized the “SRS I Sling” cradled around the bow pole and wing supports.
