(Source: Rig Pro Newport) Next week I will be heading south in the Rig Pro truck and trailer. While that drive is a bit tedious, the reward of warm weather and hanging out with our customers is well worth it. This year will be even more interesting as we add the J 70 to our list of one-designs that Southern supplies. There will be over 40 of these new speedsters!
We will once again be parked at the Westin Marina, also know as the Truman Annex. This provides quick access to the boats in the marina and is also just blocks from the official regatta tent. It also provides for nice sunsets!
The trailer will be stocked with cordage from all of the best suppliers: Marlow, Maffioli, Samson, Yale, NER and Hampidjan.
Specifically we will have Super Swift, Dynex DUX, Endurabraid, D2 Racing, Amsteel, PBO, Kevlar, Technora covered rope. We also have small Dyneema for lashing in 1.1mm,1.4mm, 1.7mm, 1.75, 2.5mm, 3mm and 4mm.
I wish that we could bring it all!!
In the hardware department, we will have parts from Harken, Lewmar, Pro-Tec tapes, Ronstan, Wichard, Spinlock and Equiplite. We will also have class specific parts for the Farr 40s, Swan 42s, M32s and J 70 classes.
