Running rigging: Our dedication to authenticity goes beyond the surface, ensuring that these ropes embody a classic rigging aspect, preserving genuine traditional aesthetics. For ropes designed for classic and traditional boats, we provide choices featuring Dyneema® or Polyester cores, accompanied by Polyester covers that evoke a classic appearance reminiscent of gold hemp colours. The incorporation of modern fibers enhances the ropes' resistance properties, while a discontinuous Polyester fibber cover imparts a soft and natural cotton fibber appearance to the touch.

These ropes exhibit versatility, serving multiple purposes such as sheets, hoists, vangs, or halyards.

In addition to rope solutions, our traditional rigging services encompass a diverse range of vital tasks, including hand splicing, leatherwork, turn back and seizing, serving, cross plaiting, and more. Our expertise lies in the intricate hand splicing of shrouds and spans in wire, employing a locking splice method with a selection of galvanized and stainless-steel construction wire ropes.

Our proficiency in leatherwork extends to various applications, covering everything from block protection to drop-over soft eyes and cross plaiting of splices. We use high-quality leather, including chromed, oil-dressed, and oiled butt variations. Our offerings also feature classic blocks crafted from wood and tufnol, sourced from the world's foremost manufacturer of traditional products.
