Rigging Services and Furling
Samalot Marine has a fully equipped rigging shop. We stock and swage wire from 1/8” to 9/32’ In House. We can replace a shroud, modify the backstay, make a whole new set of standing rigging, or new lifelines with gates. Our running rigging is also custom made with splicing done in house. We carry a large variety of cordage including the newer “exotic” large harken lazy jacklines.
Here are a few examples of common boat upgrades we have installed:
- Lead halyards aft to cockpit to ease single handling
- Improve deck layouts
- Install Tides Track & Slide System- This high-performance, low friction mainsail handling system will allow the mainsail to rise easily and drop instantly when the halyard is released.
- Install Harken Lazy Jack System- This system will capture the mainsail and hold it on the boom til you get to the dock.selden furlex roller furler

We have installed hundreds of furling systems over the years- all the major brands. Our first choice of brands is Furlex by Selden. They have an excellent product and provide a new headstay with every system.
