Level 1 Inspection:
Includes a full visual inspection of the accessible rigging-top to bottom. There is also a visual inspection of the mast base and chainplates, light fixtures and other mounted fixtures. Running rigging is assessed.
The end of the inspection includes a verbal summary of any problems or potential problems sighted, and as quickly as possible, a written estimate to fix the issues or requested upgrades. $12 per ft. (*Systems are not disassembled during inspection.)
The estimates /invoices are written in way to satisfy general insurance requirements for reports.
*Visual inspections are made using nondestructive methods only unless otherwise arranged.
Level 2 Inspection
Includes top to bottom visual inspection of the entire rigging system. Level 2 also includes a full written report of the findings, as well as the exact length and size of the wires, terminal types and pin sizes. The information in this report would be thorough enough to perform a complete standing rerig. $20 per ft.
Level 3 Inspection
Includes the de-masting and decommissioning/ disassembly of the rigging components. Inspection using magnification, and cataloging of rigging components. Occasionally the U.S.C.G. requires this level of inspection of inspected vessels. Hourly labor rate + machinery cost. (i.e. crane, fork truck, etc.)
Keys Rigging just replaced the rigging and hardware and navigation lights on the mast on my Nonsuch 33. I wholeheartedly recommend them. They accurately estimated the job and completed it as promised.
We had gone out sailing on a Sunday when our halyard failed. Monday an, called Keys Riggers and they were out by 1:00 that afternoon. With sailing obligations on Tuesday, they saved the day. It’s a pleasure doing business with them. I will definitely have them check our rig before our next trip North.
You get what you pay for… meticulous workmanship… will not cut corners…. fair price for quality work….bends over backwards to satisfy customer…. I live 450 miles away and would travel that distance for any additional rigging work.
