On Friday, march 29th, Northwest Rigging’s crew unstepped the mast on a beautiful 1978 C&C 48. This boat has been restored to beautiful condition twice, but the rod rigging was original. The owner has no plans to race her and chose to switch to wire rigging for a significant savings, rather than replace the rods.
It is likely that the tangs and spreaders had never been removed, even during the last two paint jobs.
Northwest Rigging will clean up corrosion issues, package up your spar for transport and build new Type 316 1X19 wire rigging.
This boat is headed to the East Coast for a two year East Coast and Carribean tour.
